We are expanding the opportunity for member society presidents to exchange information and communicate with other society presidents at the convention. Previously, we have held a “President’s Panel” session, where society presidents could discuss selected topics. However, as the number of member societies has grown, we feel we need to offer more to support them.
At the Tenth Biennial Convention, we are planning a “President’s Day” rather than a short panel, scheduled for Thursday, June 6. We plan to offer three ninety-minute sessions on specific topics for member society presidents (or other officer designated to represent the society if the president cannot attend). There will be no charge for these sessions.
We’d like your feedback as to the session subjects. Here are the three topics we propose:
How to Increase Society Membership How to Raise Money for Your Society (led by an experienced fund-raiser) How to Organize and Conduct a National Show
We’d like to hear from you as to whether you think these are appropriate subjects for the three sessions, or whether you have ideas as to other subjects. We cannot have more than three sessions, so we will go with majority opinions as to the subjects. Please email Maggie Price
with your comments.
Note: this does not replace or affect the President’s Dinner, which will be held as usual on Friday night, June 7.
