The Chicago Chapter has made some big changes, and they are just getting started! Take a look at the chapter’s newly launched website that features:

  • Chapter news
  • Photo gallery
  • Resources
  • Vendor list
  • Job board
  • RSS feeds
  • Video capability (At the time of this article, the chapter embedded a video of Judy Hale on the homepage in which Judy discusses the value of the ISPI Certified Performance Technologist)

The chapter also added a new voicemail system and email addresses. In addition to technology changes, the chapter made some other important enhancements:

  • A new discounted membership level for existing ISPI members
  • A newly 20% reduced price of regular membership
  • Outreach to local colleges and universities

Programming
For 2012, the board decided to hold five in-person events lasting between 3 to 8 hours. The chapter’s first event, the 2012 Chicago ISPI World Café and HPT Showcase, occurred February 22 at the Walgreens Headquarters (from 5:30 to 9:00 pm). At this event, the board spotlighted the human performance technology (HPT) work accomplished by Baxter and Walgreens.

Upcoming events include:

  • The Annual Cracker Barrel
  • Chicago e-Learning & Technology Showcase
  • Fall Conference Full-day Workshop
  • Annual Member Event

The chapter plans to host some “lunch-‘n’-learn” virtual events.
