Knowing When to Renew Your ACP Membership Is Easier than ever! The Corporate Board moved ACP membership dues to a simple annual renewal system. As of 2015, all ACP members will renew each year on January 1st. For questions, please contact National Headquarters at (800) 445-4227 or email@example.com.
I hope everyone is enjoying their summer and getting a chance to take some vacation time and escape to someplace cooler, if even for a short period. Don’t forget to drink your water! :)
As we begin to head into Q4 soon, the Board of Directors have discussed ways to encourage members and guest attendance at our monthly meetings. There have been so many interesting and relevant topics in our meetings this year and we want to ensure we reach as many members and invited guests as possible in the coming months and throughout the coming years.
In planning our yearly calendar of meetings it is often a challenge to secure a speaker on timely and relevant industry topics for our chapter. Luckily we have Sheila Kreager as our Program Director that manages this role and brings us informative topics and speakers. A few of us pitch in where we can but the bulk is all Sheila. Our monthly meetings require quite a bit of advance planning from finding a location to host the meeting at no charge (AZ ACP has a very limited budget and cannot afford to rent space), securing a speaker and appropriate topic, and handling the logistics of the meeting.
This year we have had some difficulty with finding locations and we’d like to ask our members to join us in helping to make this chapter more of a success by reserving new locations for our meetings. Wouldn’t it be nice to show off where you work? Give a show and tell of your facility? I’ll get to the point, what we’re asking for is a little help in 2017 to host meetings. If your company has a large meeting room, conference center, etc. that will hold up to 30, has presentation capability and a small space for breakfast set up (table is fine), we’d love to hear from you. Please consider signing up to host a monthly ACP meeting. There may be an incentive coming your way soon.
We are ACP! WE make up this Chapter and together we can build a stronger, more collaborative chapter of industry professionals. Please consider inviting guests to a meeting and show them why you enjoy being a member and what we offer. Also, take a peek inside the newsletter for our LinkedIn group info to find out how members can post questions or ask for help on a professional situation. It’s good to get different perspectives from various experts in our industry.
