On February 7th I attended Chatham-Kent chapter’s AGM. One of the smallest chapters in the province (approx. 330), the chapter delivered a sold-out event. How did they do that? They needed to think outside the box.
Back on November the chapter decided that they needed to do something different to get good attendance at their AGM from a cross-section of their membership. With some strategic thinking the executive decided to plan a bus tour to three restaurants (appetizers, dinner and dessert stops). They planned to run the business of the AGM on the bus with new license certificates presented at the dinner stop.
What started out as a possibly risky venture (trying something new) ended up a resounding success. Congratulations to Chapter Chair Angela Scott and her team! Thank you to the chapter for your hospitality on Friday night.
I really enjoyed meeting the chapter members and especially the conversations about opportunities for PEO to consider changes as part of the modernization initiative. Some bold ideas and strategic thinking could be applied at the PEO Council table and that’s why I’m running for Vice President!
