Leadership Traning Conference and InspectionWorld



The invitations have gone out. Each chapter has
been invited to send three representatives to the 2013 Chapter Leadership Conference to prepare them to fill leadership roles in the chapter. Chapters will realize the greatest value from the conference if they send first-time attendees.

ASHI hosts this annual training because productive chapters are important to the society, and chapters require dedicated and knowledgeable leaders to be effective.

The program theme will be “I am the Strongest Link,”
and the agenda includes:

  • Information and tools to answer the challenges all chapter leaders face while growing vibrant, healthy and viable chapters.
  • How to build a successful chapter.
  • How to plan and execute successful education events and programs to attract and retain members.
  • Organizing a chapter peer review.

Chapters that send at least one member to the conference will receive $300 to help defray the cost of attending. The development and training of new leaders is vital to the continued success of every chapter and ASHI.
