A recap from May 1st-3rd in Montreal
The ISPI conference headed to Montreal this year. From our Board, both Art Paton and Kevin Rillo attended. All in all it was a very good conference.
We attended the Chapter Leadership meeting led by Mark Brewer. Mark is the new head of chapter support for ISPI. The chapter leaders from nine ISPI chapters, large and small, worked together on issues affecting every chapter:
- Professional Development
The chapter leaders provided ideas, and shared their own successful approaches to chapter life. One chapter has drop in meets instead of formal meetings. Another chapter meets virtually and has up to 400 members participating. Art and Kevin will share the meeting summary information with members on our website for your review and comment.
At the conference we heard that ISPI membership is growing, that new chapters are forming and we received the Chapter of Merit award for our work building chapter communities and our program offerings. The ISPI Advocates met to develop the ISPI strategy and will share that with the membership soon.
