The Community Engagement Committee in Action at the Annual

The Community Engagement Committee in Action at the Annual
By Karen L. Kramer, SPHR, Executive Director of HR, Association Management Center

Face-to-face networking simply can’t be replaced by online meetings or social sharing. That was proven over and over again at AMCI’s Annual Meeting.

The Community Engagement Committee (CEC) had the honor of hosting the First Timer’s Reception at the 2018 Annual Meeting, held in beautiful Vancouver. There was a great number of new faces – 44 – including a mix of current and new members. The Meeting’s theme was ‘Inspiration to Implementation,’ and focused on giving attendees the opportunity to gain knowledge that would assist in running their business, looked at best practices in client management, and enabled unparalleled daily opportunities for peer-to-peer interaction.

The CEC designated Ambassadors whose task it was to welcome new attendees and connect them with people and opportunities that would help advance their business and ensure they could fully leverage all that the Meeting had to offer. That is just part of the work the Committee does in this area. In January of this year, a new member orientation program was developed by the CEC, creating a relationship-based orientation that informs, engages, and inspires new members to become lifelong members.

In addition to hosting the First Timer’s Reception, the CEC continues to foster the concept of community through ongoing efforts to engage all members by providing opportunities for valuable, affordable education and networking. This is done through AMCI’s one- and two-day regional meetings, online webinars, and Member Matters articles. The Committee hosted its first two-day regional meeting last May in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and had a great turnout of 75 members. We are hard at work developing content for the next regional meeting. Watch your email for details.

If you are interested in hosting a meeting in your area, please contact AMC Institute at info@amcinstitute.org.

The Committee is thrilled to be part of helping to shape the future of the AMC industry and connecting and learning from the amazing, talented members of AMCI. Those personal connections are the backbone of our industry and we will continue to work hard to foster them.
