Letter from the President, March 2013
Did you see me at last month’s meeting? I was in Orlando for the LearningSolutions conference, but I couldn't stand to miss Roger Addison. So, I registered and attended the evening workshop through Skype. I was on Sean McCarty’s iPad, propped up next to Sam Burroughs’ bag. As always, Roger delivered a great session. I couldn't attend his workshop the same way, but I've heard from several participants that it was even better.
Would you be interested in attending a session using some technology like Skype? If so, let us know by posting to our Facebook page or on Twitter, hashtag #ispiclt.
There are a ton of exciting things coming up for ISPI Charlotte as we move into the spring! First up is THE Performance Improvement Conference, starting April 12th in Reno. There, our chapter will receive its THIRD STRAIGHT Chapter of Excellence Award – placing us forever in the ranks of elite chapters of the past. Charlotte is one of the most active and successful ISPI chapters in the world and our members should be very proud of all we’ve accomplished together.
Then, on May 9th, our very own Bob Petruska will present and evening session on LEAN Principles. Several members requested this topic in our 2012 member survey, so we’re looking for a good turn-out for this exciting topic. Bob promises a hands-on, game-based session – so be sure to join us!
Later in the year, ISPI Charlotte will participate in UNC Charlotte’s Learning and Developer Summit. The topic this year is Leading a Learning Organization the summit will provide a day-long learning opportunity for training directors and managers. We participated in this event last year and introduced ISPI and Human Performance Technology to many attendees who had never heard of us before. We’ll need volunteers to man our table for this October 4th event, so if you’re interest, please email me.
Thanks again for helping give Charlotte a great ISPI chapter!
