The Chamber: PD & Training Webinars
More than half of our Chambers and Boards of Trade in our network are volunteer based and thus, rely greatly on their volunteers to move projects forward, often with limited resources. But over the last two years I’ve seen these volunteers move mountains and accomplish great things on behalf of and for their members.
In light of this, ACC wanted to develop and deliver something that you could easily offer your members, while increasing their perceived benefits of membership. Last fall we trialed a new webinar program for your use with members. We used the generic moniker of “The Chamber” moniker for the program, as most people usually refer to their local Chamber as “The Chamber”—so the universal term would suit and apply to nearly everyone within the network.
This year we will be rolling out a few more Webinars that you can take and offer to members. Our hope is that these information sessions will help further enhance your local value proposition to members.
We will be sending out notices in advance of the sessions and depending on the cost of speaker acquisition, may charge a nominal participation fee to cover costs, but we are looking speakers who can share their expertise in some of the following areas: attracting and retaining top talent, cybersecurity, financial management, interprovincial trade opportunities with QC, and energy related topics.
We hope you will leverage this opportunity, and if you have a specific topic you would like to develop and offer to members, be sure to let us know. We want to deliver member-ready relevant content to help you engage with your members.
