Welcome to the ASCP 2020 membership year. I am excited and honored to serve as your board president. I have been a member of ASCP for six years and have served on the Board of Directors since 2016. I have greatly valued my time on the board and have learned so much from the intelligent and capable state chamber professionals with whom I serve.
As a board, we strive to create programs and conferences that appeal to a wide range of professionals in the state chamber industry with the goal of increasing the value of your ASCP membership. These activities provide extraordinary opportunities to grow your networks and gain new insights for addressing the common challenges facing state chambers. Through Hot Topic calls, the Resource Library, and our annual conference, we can share best practices in an industry that is evolving quickly.
Leadership is hard at work within ASCP to encourage your enthusiastic participation so that our collective efforts in developing and advocating for a healthy business climate in each of our states are a success. Everyone is needed, invited and welcome to join and be a part of solutions in keeping the state chamber industry moving forward.
While the COVID-19 pandemic has cancelled our plans to gather in September for the LEAD Conference in Indianapolis, your ASCP Board has worked diligently to bring all of the planned education sessions to you virtually through the 2020 ASCP Experience. Each month, beginning in June and running through the end of the year, we will host webinars (free of charge) covering information on relevant topics. To view the webinar schedule, please go to the ASCP Experience page.
We are open to your suggestions on how to make ASCP better, so that together the state chamber industry can remain relevant and strong. In the end, this is your association and ASCP will only be as
strong as its members. Thank you again for your support.
