2011 Chapter Leaders Conference Information
Chapter Leaders Followup
Thank you to all who joined us at this year’s Chapter Leaders Conference! We had great representation with nearly 80 people representing 19 chapters. Special thanks to the Bloomington Chapter for sponsoring baseball game as part of the opening evening's festivities and sharing information about the chapter.
At this time, we just wanted to provide information on a few follow-up items:
Photos: As you have time, feel free to check out the Flickr online photo album of pictures from the event. To view the photos taken at the event as well as to read a full recap story, please click here.
Listserv: As you may or may not be aware, a listserv is available to all chapter leaders as a means of communication and to share ideas on an on-going basis. In case you are not familiar, a listserv is an interactive online discussion feature in which groups of people with common interests (i.e., Chapter Leaders) can exchange ideas via email. Using a Listserv is almost like using regular e-mail, except that instead of sending a message to an individual, your message is sent to all members who are signed up on the list. When you reply to a message from the list, that reply goes back to all of the list subscribers as well. You can choose which messages to respond to and share your expertise. All chapter leaders have been placed on the listserv, so please feel free to use this free resource to continue your discussions not only at chapter leaders but throughout the year! For your reference, please click on this link for listserv usage instructions and guidelines.
Roundtable discussions: Speaking of sharing ideas, summaries from the "playbooks" during the roundtable discussion portion of the conference on Friday afternoon have been compiled and are available here.
Basket Raffle Winners: Click here for the list of the winners.
Expense reports: If you have not already, please be sure to submit your expense report, which is available by clicking here.
2012 Tentative Conference Dates: Please note the 2012 Chapter Leaders Conference is tentatively being planned for August 22 & 23 in the south suburbs of Chicago. Per attendee requests, next year's conference will occur over a Wednesday - Thursday timeframe.
