9:01:29 pm dbolen: Q1 transition in ATL – unemployed (but not like me as an “underemployed” consultant) #astdchapters
9:01:45 pm ErickTaft: Curious about the transition members. How has it benefited them? #astdchapters
9:02:25 pm cindyhugg: Pausing to listen to heart-moving rendition of Chile nat’l anthem after #33 rescued. #astdchapters Back in a moment!
9:03:44 pm dbolen: @ErickTaft think many in transition find that they have neglected building a network, holy $@&# I need to network, we can help #astdchapters
9:04:25 pm RachelMiriam: @cindyhugg Transition = Unemployed #astdchapters
9:04:58 pm dbolen: RT @jenni694: @dbolen sumbit an SOS. Would like to see affidavit Great Idea, will pass along #astdchapters
9:05:42 pm LandDDave: We actually ran a great deal of programming last year for those in transition, and often let those in transition come free. #astdchapters
9:06:18 pm dbolen: Q2) Besides revenue for chapter operations, how does your model benefit the members? #astdchapters
9:06:43 pm ErickTaft: @dbolen Do you find that transition members are more likely to volunteer for committees, etc.? #astdchapters
9:07:15 pm ErickTaft: RT @dbolen: Q2) Besides revenue for chapter operations, how does your model benefit the members? #astdchapters
9:07:28 pm dbolen: RT @ErickTaft: @dbolen Do you find that transition members are more likely to volunteer for committees, etc.? Yes #astdchapters
9:07:45 pm larrystraining: @LandDDave was this transitional programming part of your regular programming or in addition to it? #astdchapters
9:07:59 pm larrystraining: RT @dbolen: Q2) Besides revenue for chapter operations, how does your model benefit the members? #astdchapters
9:08:43 pm jenni694: @ErickTaft for us that is true. But then when they get a job they disappear #astdchapters
9:09:29 pm dbolen: Q2 simplifying the org membership makes it easy for orgs to join and participate with transferable memberships #astdchapters
9:09:32 pm beneubanks: @ErickTaft I’d bet that transition members r not volunteering as much as we think they could. Like to see #’s on that. @dbolen #astdchapters
9:09:45 pm LandDDave: @larrystraining It was kind of a combination – sometimes it was a regular meeting and there were a couple of extra events. #astdchapters
9:09:57 pm RachelMiriam: @LandDDave We started a Transition SIG. What types of programming did you offer? #astdchapters
9:10:22 pm beneubanks: @jenni694 That kills me. More takers than givers out there, I guess? #astdchapters
9:10:24 pm cindyhugg: Need to demonstrate value so they’ll stay=> @jenni694 @ErickTaft when they get a job they disappear #astdchapters
9:11:22 pm dbolen: RT @cindyhugg: Need to demonstrate value so theyll stay=> @jenni694 @ErickTaft when they get a job they disappear Their loss #astdchapters
9:11:42 pm ErickTaft: Q2) I think we could simplify our model more and market the value of membership better. #astdchapters
9:12:31 pm beneubanks: If I created a group for transition ppl, I’d share info on how to get a job but also how chapter has long-term career benefits #astdchapters
9:12:42 pm larrystraining: Q2 I do not see a correlation between membership plan and value. I would gladly pay more 4 membership if there was more value #astdchapters
9:12:44 pm dbolen: Q2 in ATL org member $250 for three, each additional $75. Way simpler than before #astdchapters
9:13:14 pm beneubanks: @ErickTaft Making the case for membership value is a problem across a lot of professional associations! #shrm #astdchapters
9:13:51 pm ErickTaft: @cindyhugg @jenni694 @beneubanks that is disappointing, would like to see them stay around #astdchapters
9:14:16 pm larrystraining: Agree! RT @beneubanks: @ErickTaft Making the case for membership value is a problem across a lot of professional associations! #astdchapters
9:14:37 pm LandDDave: @RachelMiriam We brought in speakers on career counseling, and asked regular speakers to add focus on transition to topics #astdchapters
9:14:51 pm dbolen: @larrystraining value is derived by the member not by the $$. We must ensure that the member realizes the value proposition #astdchapters
9:15:15 pm jenni694: @ErickTaft #astdftl members benefit from free webinars and discounts to meetings, free mentorship program, + cplp study groups #astdchapters
9:15:32 pm beneubanks: @ErickTaft Maybe that could be the topic for another #astdchapters chat? How to keep transition members from dropping once they find work?
9:15:58 pm jrrowenhorst: I just joined, but have any chapters tried member surveys to identify what is valuable in the eyes of the members? #astdchapters
9:16:03 pm dbolen: Q3) What specifically does your chapter do to drive membership? #astdchapters
9:16:33 pm ErickTaft: @beneubanks I like the suggestion. Thank you. #astdchapters
9:16:43 pm larrystraining: RT @dbolen: Q3) What specifically does your chapter do to drive membership? #astdchapters
9:16:54 pm beneubanks: @dbolen @larrystraining Up to the chapter to communicate membership value, but the value won’t be the same for every person. #astdchapters
9:16:55 pm LandDDave: RT @dbolen: Q3) What specifically does your chapter do to drive membership? #astdchapters
9:16:59 pm jrrowenhorst: I am currently unemployed and give a lot of time to my chapter 🙂 #astdchapters

9:17:28 pm dbolen: @jrrowenhorst chapters must survey yearly to meet CORE requirements #astdchapters
9:17:34 pm jenni694: @ErickTaft @cindyhugg @beneubanks #astdchapters you’d think they’d feel obligated to stick around and give back #astdchapters
9:17:47 pm jrrowenhorst: I’m VP of Membership and I’ve administered surveys and also pushed hard on LinkedIn. #astdchapters
9:17:57 pm jenni694: @TerrenceWing Tracy and @thiagi are great! Good to chapters too #astdchapters
9:18:08 pm beneubanks: @jrrowenhorst That’s great news! You’ll be better off for it not only short term, but for the long haul as well. 🙂 #astdchapters
9:18:16 pm ErickTaft: @jrrowenhorst: We have and found that we can get better info on things the surveys miss from talking to people #astdchapters
9:18:22 pm RachelMiriam: @LandDDave I like the integration into regular meetings. Many who are employed may be looking for options so it benefits all. #astdchapters
9:18:33 pm ErickTaft: RT @jrrowenhorst: I am currently unemployed and give a lot of time to my chapter 🙂 #astdchapters <— YES!
9:18:36 pm larrystraining: And we have talked about value in past chats. RT @ErickTaft: RT @dbolen: @larrystraining value is derived by the member not #astdchapters

9:19:32 pm ErickTaft: @larrystraining Yes, we have. #astdchapters
9:19:40 pm jrrowenhorst: We’ve completed a topic survey for the 2011 programs, and we survey after each monthly presentation, which is great feedback. #astdchapters
9:20:13 pm beneubanks: If you’re interested in #ASTD or just how to lead a volunteer professional chapter, might be cool to stop into the #astdchapters chat!
9:20:14 pm dbolen: Q3 we ask sponsors and vendors to help spread the word, an under-appreciated asset #astdchapters
9:20:30 pm jrrowenhorst: We’re about to admin a member survey now to identify day, time, location, etc. that works best for attendees. #astdchapters
9:20:41 pm ErickTaft: @RachelMiriam Our chapter has had some speakers this & last year focused on job search techniques/networking #astdchapters
9:20:49 pm ThomasStone: Q3) We devoted part of a meeting to focused brainstorming, so that all attending members included in planning for next year #astdchapters
9:21:11 pm jrrowenhorst: Partnering with similar local orgs is also good, like SHRM or OD Network. #astdchapters
9:21:45 pm dbolen: Q3 we also go into phone tree mode and call lapsed members, we’ve seen success in the personal connection #astdchapters
9:22:06 pm beneubanks: @ThomasStone That’s a really great idea! #superbrainstormingsession #astdchapters
9:22:11 pm jrrowenhorst: Onboarding new attendees at meetings is also crucial. Hand holding can help retain those first timers. #astdchapters
9:22:40 pm cindyhugg: The RTA chapter periodically reaches out to national members in the area to invite them to join, offer discount (Q3) #astdchapters
9:22:44 pm jrrowenhorst: I agree with calling. I’ve done some cold calling as well to feel out new and previous members. #astdchapters

9:24:29 pm dbolen: RT @astdepa: @cindyhugg We reach out to national members, too, esp for bigger events. YES low hanging fruit? #astdchapters
9:24:39 pm ThomasStone: Do other chapters tailor some communications (email, other) specifically to lapsed or otherwise targeted should-be members? #astdchapters
9:24:47 pm jrrowenhorst: We find it is hard to find topics that apply to enough members, since every training position is so different. #astdchapters #astdchapters
9:24:48 pm RachelMiriam: RT @astdepa: @cindyhugg We reach out to national members, too, esp for bigger events. #astdchapters Oops, wrong account 🙂

9:30:57 pm cindyhugg: RT @dbolen: Q4) How do membership drives support your model and benefit the chapter and members? #astdchapters
9:30:59 pm Ken_Steiger: #astdchapters “finding value” for members often is about finding work–chapter work–for them; let them be “tasketeers”!
9:31:05 pm Ginaschreck: I luv that ASTD has TweetChats for their chaptrs & their Ldership teams across the US- Brilliant social sharing #astdchapters #astd10
