ISPI chapter leaders–make your plans now to attend the Chapter Leader Workshop on Sunday, April 14, from 7:30 am– 5:00 pm at THE Performance Improvement Conference in Reno, Nevada. This workshop will provide chapter leaders with valuable resources and information they need to improve both their effectiveness as a leader and the success of their chapter. Registration is free and highly recommended for all current chapter presidents and president-elects. Registration is also open to all chapter board members. Lunch is provided to all attendees.

The daylong Chapter Leadership Workshop will focus on helping chapters to improve their administrative processes and practices. There are many examples of successful practices in managing financials, membership, marketing, volunteer management, and service delivery within ISPI chapters. The Chapter Leader Workshop is a chance for chapter leaders to share their best practices with one another and to help each other solve chapter administration issues and set goals for the coming year. Additionally, the workshop will provide insights on applying the principles of human performance technology (HPT) to each of these critical areas in their chapter administration.

The workshop will open with presentations by ISPI President Jack Phillips and President-Elect Lisa Toenniges, who will discuss the vision for ISPI in the coming year. Sonia DiMaulo will close the session with an inspirational discussion.

“Chapter leaders will leave the workshop with the means to move their chapters forward, grow their membership, and effectively manage their chapter’s volunteers,” says Chapter Partnership Committee Chair Rose Noxon. Participants will also receive a detailed workbook that will help them as they implement transition plans tailored to their chapter’s individual needs.

Also, do not miss the Chapter Leader warm-up session taking place the evening before the workshop, on Saturday, April 13, from 7 – 9 p.m. This activity-based event will help participants get ready for the next day’s workshop and build their ISPI chapter network in a less formal setting.
