ASHRM hosts the Chapter Leadership Workshop each year on the first day of the Annual Conference & Exhibition. The workshop is an excellent source of leadership tools and information, as well as an opportunity to share experiences, ideas and solutions with fellow chapter leaders from across the country.
The program includes presentations on issues of interest to chapter leaders, such as membership recruitment and retention, finances and chapter operations, recruiting and motivating volunteers, sponsorship and educational programs and other aspects of running a successful chapter.
In addition, chapter leaders have a chance to network with other leaders, learning what issues they have in common and how other leaders and organizations have tackled these challenges. In addition, chapter leaders can share their best practices for serving their members and the risk management profession.
All current presidents and presidents-elect are invited to attend, or they can designate a chapter representative to attend in their place. The agenda for the workshop is planned each year by the Chapter Relations Task Force, which builds on feedback and suggestions from chapter leaders across the country. Invitations are sent out in August.
