Program Questions/Comments/Suggestions? Call me!
As Program Chair for our Advocis chapter it is my job to ensure that we offer our members opportunities to learn from their peers and other experts, to refresh their approach, ideas or methods for working with clients, or to be introduced to new ideas that they can bring to their business as well as to earn their needed CE credits. This is no easy task! Our membership is a diverse group with diverse clients and diverse business practices. It is a group with varied and diverse needs and therefore expectations of what our program should offer.
I am using this blog as a chance to put a call out to our members to join our program committee or to simply submit ideas for speakers/topics. It’s kind of like making supper every night. I don’t mind the cooking but only have so many ideas; I need yours! Some ways we are looking at reaching more of our members include, specific events for our new, younger advisors to help them establish and maintain their businesses, offering webinars of our PD days and lunch n’ learns to reach those outside of Saskatoon – especially during the winter months when according to the highway hot line most of the highways are “travel not recommended”.
For any of this to be successful, I need input from you. Our program can only get stronger if I have the input from those it is designed for in the first place. So…..let me know if you have time to talk and share what/who you would like to see.
