Greetings fellow Association of State Chamber Professionals (ASCP) members and colleagues! As we continue to weather this pandemic, our state chambers are strengthened by the network built at ASCP. As we continue to find new ways to grow our organizations, it is encouraging to have such a broad range of expertise within our organization to share best practices with each other and develop new strategies and ideas for the state chamber industry.
We look forward to getting together this fall for our annual conference. One of our sponsors told me recently that he’s been involved with many organizations over the years, but he has never seen such a closely connected group of professionals that share their experiences to help each other grow professionally. What a wonderful compliment to the group, from one of our sponsor partners who has seen the value that ASCP offers to its members.
We have some exciting “Experience Webinars” lined up for 2022, focusing on important topics including: membership, retention, foundation revenue generation, communications and event sponsorship. If you have ideas for topics for future webinars, please let us know. We are scheduling speakers to share new ideas with our members during the year, so stay tuned for more details coming soon. I encourage you to get plugged into webinars and to connect with other members in various states (if you haven’t already). If you are interested in volunteering your time to serve on our board, please contact someone on the board to learn more. I look forward to a great year in 2022 and will see you this Fall in Las Vegas!
