Chapter Leaders Academy Proving Popular
January 10, 2012 – Just how popular and rewarding are the Chapter Leaders Academy sessions? The first session of 2012, scheduled for January 20-22, is completely full. Don’t delay and make your reservations to join us during one of the following weekends – March 16-18 or Oct. 26-28.
These sessions are not only extremely valuable for any chapter officer, but can also be of great service to newly elected officers and future chapter leaders. We encourage your chapter to consider participating.
Past attendees have been overwhelmingly positive in their reviews and would recommend attendance to other chapter members. The academy sessions are provided free of charge. We’ll take care of your food, lodging, and local transportation. You’ll be responsible for the travel expenses to Oshkosh, but don’t let that stop you. If travel costs are an issue, let us know and we may be able to assist you.
The sessions begin on Friday evening with dinner and social time, followed by a daylong discussion on many topics that challenge all chapters, including recruitment, programs, and fundraising. The academy concludes on Sunday with a half-day of meetings and another opportunity to discuss topics that may be of interest to your chapter. In addition, leaders meet many of the staff members they work with on a regular basis and other staff members who can be resources.
Here is some feedback from past participants:
“I was impressed with the expertise of the headquarters staff and the number of staff who spent so much time working with us.We definitely made new friends with staff and participants.”
“I can’t imagine running a chapter without going through this program.”
“This has been the best use of my time (other than family events) that I can remember.”
“I found the sessions and interaction was valuable. Hearing other chapter’s problems helps put things in perspective.”
“A lot of wonderful ideas were generated for implementation in our chapter. The seminar was very beneficial.”
