ASTDNEFL Quest 8: Is money flow and net profit part of the discussion at your board meetings? Please explain. #ASTDchapters

jenni694 Q6) would like to see revenue source plan submitted for SOS. please submit, if you have one #ASTDChapters

larrystraining Q6) I think a key is a good “What’s in it for them” the sponsor. What will they get if they support you. #ASTDChapters

7:45:02 pm ErickTaft: Q1) Local talent = people in the trenches doing the work, big names = “thought leaders” #astdchapters
7:45:11 pm ErickTaft: RT @dbolen: Q1 local talent hasn’t “made it” to the big time to national prominence #astdchapters
7:45:34 pm steve_maul: Q1) See thought leadership in both “big names” and “local talent”. Big names are often big because they got published #astdchapters
7:45:56 pm dbolen: @ErickTaft you can have local thought leaders too! #astdchapters
7:46:25 pm ErickTaft: @dbolen I know! That didn’t come out the way I wanted it to – like the way you stated it better. #astdchapters
7:46:55 pm steve_maul: Q1 Big names are often first to bring an issue to the table. They find a platform on which to build their reputation #astdchapters
7:47:07 pm dbolen: Q1 is publishing a differentiator since you can use a self publisher like Lulu? #astdchapters

7:49:53 pm dbolen: Q1 does published presence out weigh blogging or some online presence? #astdchapters
7:49:54 pm britz: RT @dbolen @ErickTaft you can have local thought leaders too! #astdchapters
7:51:22 pm ErickTaft: @dbolen I think using self-publishing platforms will make it less of a differentiator (i.e. @jaycross) #astdchapters
7:51:37 pm ErickTaft: RT @Charnell_W: Q1) Name recognition of the “thought leaders” (& those widely published) can be a bigger draw #astdchapters
7:51:52 pm dbolen: Q2) What are the advantages of showcasing local talent? #astdchapters #astdchapters
7:51:56 pm Charnell_W: good point>RT @ErickTaft: @Charnell_W I found that many do-just need platform (& confidence?) 2 share expertise. #astdchapters #astdchapters

8:38:58 pm ErickTaft: Q0) I am privileged to work with a very talented board at @ASTDNWA #astdchapters
8:40:25 pm LandDDave: It seems like ages since our last meeting. We didn’t have a December meeting scheduled and our January meeting was snowed out #astdchapters
8:40:30 pm larrystraining: Q0 – Our January presentation was on Employee Engagement #neokastd. Lots of focus on what IS working not just the holes. #astdchapters
8:41:01 pm ErickTaft: @larrystraining Who was the presenter? #astdchapters
8:41:29 pm ErickTaft: @LandDDave Our Jan meeting was snowed out too. #astdchapters

8:43:32 pm ErickTaft: @larrystraining Could you send me their contact info? #astdchapters
8:44:34 pm LandDDave: Q1) We don’t have it documented anywhere, but it seems to be the President’s responsibility. It’s been that way for 4-5 years #astdchapters
8:45:07 pm larrystraining: Q1) At #neokastd the Immediate Past President submits the CORE forms, but it is the board working together to complete it. #astdchapters
8:45:36 pm ErickTaft: Q1) The chapter President & President-Elect – the board provides supporting documentation #astdchapters
8:45:51 pm larrystraining: Sure will! RT @ErickTaft: @larrystraining Could you send me their contact info? #astdchapters

8:47:27 pm dbolen: hey all Don Bolen ATL, past president, now on board of directors #astdchapters
8:47:45 pm ErickTaft: @dbolen Evening Don. #astdchapters
8:48:08 pm dbolen: Q1 president-elect in ATL is responsible for compiling and submitting CORE #astdchapters
8:48:16 pm ErickTaft: Kind of related, Q2) How long does it take to complete the CORE report? #astdchapters
8:48:54 pm larrystraining: RT @ErickTaft: Q2) How long does it take to complete the CORE report? #astdchapters
8:50:08 pm ErickTaft: Q2) Completing and submitting the report can be done in under 1/2 hour – getting the supporting documentation takes time. #astdchapters
8:50:42 pm dbolen: Q2 last time I did this it as straight forward, we had the info and it was completing the form, maybe 45 minutes#astdchapters
8:51:09 pm larrystraining: Q2) Each part takes approx. an hour or two, but assigning it to functional members and compiling it speeds the process. #astdchapters
8:52:17 pm LandDDave: Q2) It took me about 3 hours in one sitting to complete the CORE report. #astdchapters
8:52:47 pm LandDDave: Q2) Using the same basic template year-after-year helps. #astdchapters
8:52:51 pm ErickTaft: Q2) It is important to keep good, solid records (board minutes) , financials, membership records. #astdchapters
8:53:06 pm ErickTaft: RT @LandDDave: Q2) Using the same basic template year-after-year helps. #astdchapters <- Yes, it does.
8:53:33 pm dbolen: Q2, must be the PM in me, had it pretty well organized with organized data #astdchapters
8:53:51 pm Charnell_W: RT @ErickTaft: Q2) It is important to keep good, solid records (board minutes) , financials, membership records.#astdchapters
8:54:10 pm LandDDave: Q2) Once we got to 100% CORE, it was simple to look at it as “There’s our template” #astdchapters
8:54:24 pm larrystraining: RT @ErickTaft: Q2) It is important to keep good, solid records (board minutes) , financials, membership records.#astdchapters
8:54:25 pm ErickTaft: Q2) an keep the board members with the data engaged & invovled – makes it much easier. #astdchapters
8:55:15 pm dbolen: RT @LandDDave: Q2) Once we got to 100% CORE, it was simple to look at it as “Theres our template” yes sir!#astdchapters
8:55:24 pm Charnell_W: RT @LandDDave: Q2) Once we got to 100% CORE, it was simple to look at it as “There’s our template” | Good point!#astdchapters
8:55:31 pm ErickTaft: Q3) How can a chapter achieve 100% CORE (Chapter Operating Requirements)? #ASTD #astdchapters
8:55:52 pm ErickTaft: RT @LandDDave: Q2) Once we got to 100% CORE, it was simple to look at it as “There’s our template” #astdchapters
8:56:04 pm larrystraining: Having the template and actually doing the items can be two different things 😉 RT @LandDDave: Q2) “Theres our template” #astdchapters
8:56:51 pm ErickTaft: Q3) or, if not 100%, what are plans to achieve 100%? #astdchapters
8:56:55 pm larrystraining: RT @ErickTaft: Q3) How can a chapter achieve 100% CORE (Chapter Operating Requirements)? #ASTD#astdchapters
8:57:23 pm Charnell_W: Q3) If in doubt whether U can be 100%, reach out to UR NAC or Coach & talk through the elements & what U are doing. #astdchapters
8:57:55 pm ErickTaft: Q3) Easier said than done – use CORE as the basis of the annual operations plan & execute the plan. #astdchapters
8:58:38 pm ErickTaft: RT @Charnell_W: Q3) If in doubt whether U can be 100%, reach out to UR NAC or Coach & talk through the elements & what U are doing. #astdchapters
8:58:43 pm LandDDave: Q3) It starts with looking at why you aren’t at 100% CORE. How controllable is what’s missing? #astdchapters
8:59:48 pm larrystraining: Q3) We have not had board minutes published for over a year and when they canceled ChAMP we lost all our saved documents. #astdchapters
8:59:59 pm ErickTaft: @Charnell_W Good point – if unsure, ask for help – some requirements you only need to hit once during the year to meet. #astdchapters
9:00:45 pm ErickTaft: @LandDDave Just about everything is controllable. #astdchapters
9:01:10 pm LandDDave: @larrystraining All your saved docs are gone? That’s nuts! #astdchapters
9:01:33 pm ErickTaft: @larrystraining Yikes! #astdchapters
9:01:44 pm LandDDave: @ErickTaft Depends on your point of view… I’ve heard lots of complaints about the joint National and CPLP requirements. #astdchapters
9:01:59 pm larrystraining: And frustrating. RT @LandDDave: @larrystraining All your saved docs are gone? Thats nuts! #astdchapters
9:02:18 pm ErickTaft: @LandDDave That one is a little challenging – also some years keep the required min # of members. #astdchapters
9:02:54 pm LandDDave: I’ve got to confess, we use Champ but haven’t set a plan to move to Wild Aprocot yet. What’s the timeframe for sunsetting? #astdchapters
9:03:14 pm ErickTaft: RT @LandDDave: I’ve got to confess, we use Champ but haven’t set a plan to move to Wild Aprocot yet. What’s the timeframe for sunsetting? #astdchapters
9:03:53 pm dbolen: Q3 ChAMP and local member database are a cluster, too &$%# manual #astdchapters
9:04:03 pm ErickTaft: @LandDDave Same here. The timing of the announcement could have been better. #astdchapters
9:04:46 pm larrystraining: Check out this link from @ldowns99: Interested in making the switch from ChAMP 2 Wild Apricot? Visithttp://www.astd.org/champ #astdchapters
9:05:01 pm dbolen: we’re on Wild Apricot in ATL, fabulous platform, will save us mucho $$ #astdchapters
9:05:22 pm ErickTaft: @dbolen We struggled with that all last year too. Don’t now if it was every satisfactorly resolved. #astdchapters
9:05:27 pm ErickTaft: Q4) What are your challenges in preparing report, gathering data? #astdchapters
9:05:55 pm larrystraining: RT @ErickTaft: Q4) What are your challenges in preparing report, gathering data? #astdchapters
9:06:09 pm dbolen: @LandDDave @ErickTaft what’s the CPLP requirement, is it membership # based? #astdchapters
9:06:28 pm ErickTaft: Q4) Besides ChAMP & local data bases. #astdchapters
9:06:44 pm dbolen: @ErickTaft @dbolen yes, don’t want to go there #astdchapters
9:07:06 pm larrystraining: Q4) It needs to be an all year process, not a good report to practice procrastination. #astdchapters
9:07:28 pm dbolen: Q4 it’s reconciling joint members to meet the threshold #astdchapters
9:07:49 pm ErickTaft: Q4) disappearing board members are challenge – good record keeping is critical along with a strong ops plan.#astdchapters
9:07:59 pm ErickTaft: RT @larrystraining: Q4) It needs to be an all year process, not a good report to practice procrastination. #astdchapters
9:08:26 pm LandDDave: RT @dbolen: @LandDDave @ErickTaft whats the CPLP requirement, is it membership # based? < I think is a small % of members #astdchapters
9:09:00 pm dbolen: @ErickTaft LOST? agreed need to be better keeper of records, tough for volunteers #astdchapters
9:09:06 pm LandDDave: Q4) It would be nice if it were more of a team effort than one person’s role. #astdchapters
9:09:10 pm ErickTaft: @dbolen I’m thinking the past two years may have been tough to meet the joint threshold for all. #astdchapters
9:10:30 pm dbolen: @LandDDave Q4 we’ve keep more better records for CORE categories and that’s the responsible VP, so far, it’s worked#astdchapters
9:11:34 pm WaltHansmann: Using ChAMP reconciling joint members was no problem. Despite decrease in members in 2010, joint increased.#astdchapters
9:11:50 pm LandDDave: @dbolen Your current site is done via Wild Apricot? #astdchapters
9:11:56 pm ErickTaft: Q4) helps to assign specific parts of CORE to board members for the year to complete. #astdchapters
9:12:32 pm ErickTaft: @WaltHansmann What tips so you have for other chapters Walt? #astdchapters
9:13:16 pm LandDDave: @WaltHansmann Greeting Walt – Thanks for joining us! #astdchapters
9:13:35 pm WaltHansmann: Start the year with a plan. Follow the plan. Promote Power of 2. #astdchapters
9:13:38 pm larrystraining: Q4) CORE responsibilities should be written into functional job descriptions so they are not forgotten until it is too late. #astdchapters
9:13:39 pm dbolen: @dbolen @LandDDave @ErickTaft what’s puzzling to me is that there’s 1000 CPLP, so divideto get a # of required CPLP?#astdchapters
9:13:51 pm ErickTaft: Q5) What tips can you share in pulling the data together for annual CORE report? #astdchapters
9:14:07 pm WaltHansmann: RT @LandDDave: @WaltHansmann Greeting Walt – Thanks for joining us! #astdchapters Thanks Dave! Just dropped in.
9:14:07 pm dbolen: RT @LandDDave: @dbolen Your current site is done via Wild Apricot? yes implemented Sept 2010 #astdchapters

9:16:00 pm WaltHansmann: RT @LandDDave: Q5) Don’t wait until January 28th to think about CORE… #astdchapters AMEN!
9:16:13 pm larrystraining: RT @LandDDave: Q5) Dont wait until January 28th to think about CORE… #astdchapters
9:16:36 pm WaltHansmann: RT @larrystraining: Q5) CORE responsibilities should be written into functional job descriptions #astdchaptersYES and YES
9:16:39 pm ErickTaft: RT @LandDDave: Q5) Don’t wait until January 28th to think about CORE… #astdchapters <- & remind the board all year long
9:16:57 pm LandDDave: Wait… What’s today’s date? 😉 #astdchapters
9:17:24 pm dbolen: @ErickTaft @dbolen 110 ish #astdchapters
9:17:26 pm WaltHansmann: RT @LandDDave: Wait… What’s today’s date? 😉 Plenty of time … only Jan 19th #astdchapters
9:18:28 pm ErickTaft: @dbolen 1000 CPLPs / 110 chapters – I doubt there is an even distribution + some are not local members.#astdchapters
9:18:37 pm WaltHansmann: Anyone offer lower chapter fees to joint members and higher to local only members? #astdchapters
9:19:13 pm dbolen: @ErickTaft @dbolen on the nose and one of the core (pun intended) issues #astdchapters
9:19:35 pm ErickTaft: @WaltHansmann We used to – along with the student, retiree, honoree, & group memberships it got to complicated to administer. #astdchapters
9:20:26 pm Charnell_W: RT @WaltHansmann:Anyone offer lower chapter fees to joint members and higher to local only members? No but promote Power of 2 #astdchapters
9:20:27 pm ErickTaft: @dbolen There is something wrong with the math & the assumption. #astdchapters
9:20:54 pm dbolen: CPLP is a personal decision to be made by an individual, chapters should not be help CORE accountable for x% of CPLP#astdchapters
9:21:02 pm ErickTaft: Q6) What aspect of CORE would you recommend that #ASTD drop or change? #astdchapters
9:21:17 pm WaltHansmann: @ErickTaft: I can imagine. We have just regular and student. Would not mind adding a reduced joint fee.#astdchapters
9:21:26 pm larrystraining: RT @ErickTaft: Q6) What aspect of CORE would you recommend that #ASTD drop or change? #astdchapters
9:21:30 pm ErickTaft: Q6) (wondering if joint membership / CPLP requirements will be mentioned???) #astdchapters
9:22:19 pm LandDDave: @dbolen The same could be said about other CORE aspects – joint membership as an example. #astdchapters
9:22:40 pm ryantracey: RT @LandDDave: Q1) We don’t have it documented anywhere, but it seems to be the President’s responsibility. It’s been that way for 4-5 years #astdchapters
9:22:47 pm WaltHansmann: Q6) For ChAMP chapters, why do we repeat membership info when nat’l already has it all? #astdchapters
9:22:50 pm dbolen: Q6 there must be some assessment of reality, will join membership be attractive to younger members? #astdchapters
9:23:09 pm ErickTaft: @dbolen That encourages chapters to do things like 100% national membership only, CPLP required for board members… #astdchapters
9:23:28 pm LandDDave: Q6) Is dropping CORE in itself a reasonable suggestion? 😉 #astdchapters
9:23:43 pm LandDDave: RT @WaltHansmann: Q6) For ChAMP chapters, why do we repeat membership info when natl already has it all? < AMEN! #astdchapters
9:24:00 pm dbolen: @ErickTaft @dbolen and is that a good thing? #astdchapters
9:24:29 pm LandDDave: Q6) One of the challenges we’ve had with Joint membership is the varying pricing on National Memberships.#astdchapters
9:24:33 pm ErickTaft: @LandDDave CORE helps with basic chapter operations – needs to be kept simple & reasonably obtainable for volunteers. #astdchapters
9:26:04 pm ErickTaft: @dbolen No, it could keep talented individuals off the board. CPLP is personal choice. #astdchapters
9:26:21 pm dbolen: @ErickTaft @LandDDave once “quaint” aspect of CORE is that it’s biased in promoting national vs what might be better for local #astdchapters
9:27:09 pm LandDDave: RT @ErickTaft: CORE helps with basic chapter operations – needs to be kept simple & reasonably obtainable for volunteers. #astdchapters
9:27:12 pm Charnell_W: There’s no CPLP requirement in CORE| RT @dbolen: @LandDDave @ErickTaft what’s the CPLP requirement, is it membership # based? #astdchapters
9:27:24 pm LandDDave: RT @dbolen: @ErickTaft one “quaint” aspect of CORE is that its biased in promoting national vs what might be better for local #astdchapters
9:27:36 pm dbolen: sorry don’t want to beat up on national, there has been tremendous improvement and attention over previous years#astdchapters
9:27:54 pm ErickTaft: @dbolen:@LandDDave Isn’t NORE (National Operating Requirements) supposed to do that? #astdchapters
9:27:55 pm LandDDave: @Charnell_W They dropped it? #astdchapters
9:28:16 pm larrystraining: Q6) I think of CORE similar to ISO cert, or CPLP cert, or (insert name here) cert…there has to be some steps 4 achieving. #astdchapters
9:28:26 pm ErickTaft: @Charnell_W Thank you for clearing that up Charnell. #astdchapters
9:28:41 pm WaltHansmann: If CPLP is not CORE requirement, why include the question? Nat’l does not already know? #astdchapters
9:28:55 pm Charnell_W: I relooked at elements – its not in there. Wasn’t in there in the past. RT @LandDDave: @Charnell_W They dropped it?#astdchapters
9:29:02 pm dbolen: however, there are tremendous challenges for chapters that national may be able to assist with but cannot #astdchapters
9:29:44 pm ErickTaft: I think the CPLP is in the demographic questions… *trying to remember* #astdchapters
9:29:50 pm LandDDave: @Charnell_W Maybe CPLP is one of the requirements that were scaled back due to the economy. #astdchapters
9:30:18 pm ErickTaft: On to the bonus questions… #astdchapters
9:31:14 pm WaltHansmann: CPLP question on page 10 of CORE http://bit.ly/gF1pBH #astdchapters
9:31:25 pm Charnell_W: Don’t know who is chptr mbr| RT @WaltHansmann: If CPLP not CORE req, why include the question? Nat’l does not already know? #astdchapters
9:31:36 pm ErickTaft: CPLP is Certified Professional in Learning & Performance for those following along. More info on http://www.astd.org#astdchapters
9:32:35 pm WaltHansmann: RT @Charnell_W: so other chapters do not tell Natl who are local only? We do. ChAMP #astdchapters
9:32:35 pm ErickTaft: @Charnell_W Would be nice if local & national used same data-base for membership. #astdchapters
9:33:05 pm ErickTaft: Q7) How does the CORE report help your chapter be sound and successful? #astdchapters
9:33:20 pm Charnell_W: Think it was mis-info that spread RT @LandDDave: @Charnell_W mayB CPLP is 1 of the reqs that wr scaled back due 2 the economy. #astdchapters
9:34:02 pm ErickTaft: Q7) used CORE as the backbone of ops plan & strategy planning during time as chapter president. #astdchapters
9:34:12 pm larrystraining: RT @ErickTaft: Q7) How does the CORE report help your chapter be sound and successful? #astdchapters
9:34:31 pm dbolen: CPLP is one of those promoted national programs via CORE, there are Qs about study groups p 9 2010 ASTD CORE Wrkbook #astdchapters
9:34:41 pm WaltHansmann: Q7) CORE is a standard for measurement. Could be considered minimums. #astdchapters
9:34:56 pm Charnell_W: They do, too 2 diff databases of info RT @WaltHansmann: so other chapters do not tell Natl who are local only? We do. ChAMP #astdchapters
9:35:52 pm ErickTaft: RT @WaltHansmann: Q7) CORE is a standard for measurement. Could be considered minimums. #astdchapters
9:35:54 pm WaltHansmann: RT @Charnell_W: Maybe a single database makes more sense? We run everything thru ChAMP #astdchapters
9:36:00 pm Charnell_W: Agree | RT @ErickTaft: @Charnell_W Would be nice if local & national used same data-base for membership.#astdchapters
9:36:06 pm dbolen: Q7 CORE facilitates process and sound practice, that’s a good thing #astdchapters
9:36:18 pm ErickTaft: RT @dbolen: Q7 CORE facilitates process and sound practice, that’s a good thing #astdchapters
9:37:00 pm LandDDave: Q7) CORE definitely answers the question of what is important for chapters with inexpereinced leadership.#astdchapters
9:37:37 pm ErickTaft: Q7) CORE Helps the chapter not re-invent the wheel every year. #astdchapters
9:38:11 pm WaltHansmann: Great point! | RT @ErickTaft: Q7) CORE Helps the chapter not re-invent the wheel every year. #astdchapters
9:38:16 pm ErickTaft: Let’s see how many ways I can miss-type the hashtag #astdchapters
9:38:43 pm dbolen: @Charnell_W @ErickTaft will Wild Apricot platform facilitate? #astdchapters
9:38:48 pm LandDDave: Gotta step out a little early tonight- just heard the “Daddyyyy!” call from my sick daughter upstairs. Have a great night!#astdchapters
9:39:10 pm larrystraining: Erick and Dave, I like your answers as long as it is looked at up front and not as an afterthought because it is due.#astdchapters

9:40:30 pm ErickTaft: @larrystraining Not being an afterthought is critical for success with CORE. #astdchapters
9:40:45 pm ErickTaft: Q8) When did your chapter start pulling together the information for the report? #astdchapters
9:41:05 pm Charnell_W: I think so but don’t fully know details. RT @dbolen: @Charnell_W @ErickTaft will Wild Apricot platform facilitate?#astdchapters
9:41:20 pm larrystraining: RT @ErickTaft: Q8) When did your chapter start pulling together the information for the report? #astdchapters
9:41:22 pm WaltHansmann: Q8) Membership info available all year, but not final until after 12/31 #astdchapters
9:41:56 pm ErickTaft: @dbolen @Charnell_W Sounds like I need to learn more about Wild Apricot & advocate for using it? #astdchapters
9:42:42 pm dbolen: Q8 started pulling info in December and then finalized with financial closeout #astdchapters
9:43:28 pm dbolen: @ErickTaft @dbolen @Charnell_W it’s waaaaaaayyyyyy more better than a SharePoint site, been there and I do have the tee shirts #astdchapters

7:39:38 pm larrystraining: Hi all! Running a few min late. 🙂 #astdchapters
7:39:47 pm LandDDave: RT @ErickTaft: Warm-up Question (Q0): What have you learned at a recent #ASTD chapter meeting?#astdchapters
7:39:51 pm ErickTaft: @larrystraining Welcome Larry! #astdchapters
7:40:08 pm LandDDave: @larrystraining Hi Larry #astdchapters
7:43:15 pm LandDDave: Q0) Our last meeting was joint with local SHRM chapter. I learned a shared meeting makes for great networking opportunities. #astdchapters
7:43:22 pm dawnjmahoney: #astdchapters Can I just say, Woo Hoo!! UW Badgers r going to the Rose Bowl? (I think I just did) 🙂
7:44:13 pm LandDDave: For the record, my “Cr@p, I forgot the hashtag” count is at ONE. #astdchapters
7:44:37 pm ErickTaft: @LandDDave Any suggestions for chapters considering doing a joint event with local #SHRM? #astdchapters
7:46:38 pm dawnjmahoney: #astdchapters Re:joint event with local #SHRM. R chapter learned after several years 2 have agreement on 1 registration method & pricing
7:47:20 pm dawnjmahoney: @LandDDave I’ll be there soon. #astdchapters
7:48:00 pm TerrenceWing: I’ve cautiously warned my chapter 2 avoid being everything 2 every1. That is how Brand gets dilluted.SHRM is a diff brand #astdchapters
7:48:31 pm LandDDave: The agreement with the chapters is key – otherwise one dictates. SHRM seemed to try to make it ‘their’ event.#astdchapters
7:49:13 pm dawnjmahoney: RT @TerrenceWing #astdchapters Here, here! Also depends on the complexion of ur membership
7:49:19 pm LandDDave: RT @ErickTaft: Q1) How does your chapter currently onboard new chapter leaders? #astdchapters
7:49:42 pm ErickTaft: @TerrenceWing I’ve always thought of #SHRM & #ASTD as complimentary for those of us with our feet in both worlds. #astdchapters
7:50:06 pm dawnjmahoney: RT @ErickTaft: @TerrenceWing I’ve always thought of #SHRM & #ASTD as complimentary for those of us with our feet in both worlds. #astdchapters
7:50:12 pm LandDDave: @ErickTaft I noticed a typo in your hashtag, so I’m going to give myself a credit towards my ‘forgotten hashtag’ count. #astdchapters
7:50:19 pm TerrenceWing: There’s the fire. Try not to get burnt. (I say sarcastically but really meaning it) #astdchapters
7:50:51 pm dawnjmahoney: @ErickTaft #astdchapters But appeal & messaging is sometimes different. SHRM targeted ASTD more broad appeal
7:50:58 pm TerrenceWing: @dawnjmahoney @ErickTaft Definitely complimentary under the HR umbrella #astdchapters
7:51:24 pm LandDDave: As a smaller chapter, we try to partner with other orgs at times as a way to extend our outreach. #astdchapters
7:51:25 pm ErickTaft: @LandDDave Doh! #astdchapters
7:51:57 pm ErickTaft: Q1) How does your chapter currently on-board new chapter leaders? #astdchapters
7:52:13 pm TerrenceWing: @LandDDave Define partner? #astdchapters
7:52:50 pm LandDDave: Usually we propose a topic that is mostly L&D that extends to other org’s umbrella. #astdchapters
7:52:52 pm dawnjmahoney: @LandDDave #astdchapters RU sharing members? if not, then outreach makes sense. If so, it can be a conundrum
7:53:11 pm LandDDave: It also helps us extend our programming offerings. #astdchapters
7:53:24 pm ErickTaft: RT @LandDDave: Usually we propose a topic that is mostly L&D that extends to other org’s umbrella.#astdchapters (joint event with #SHRM)
7:53:55 pm TerrenceWing: @LandDDave We try to do topics that other orgs aren’t doing. We try to keep it to T&D despite tendency to stray #astdchapters
7:54:30 pm britz: Im slightly lurking…Q1) How does your chapter onboard new chapter leaders? / wine, cheese & strategic goal planning#astdchapters
7:54:30 pm LandDDave: @dawnjmahoney That’s always the balance – We don’t share members, but try to extend membership through joint events. #astdchapters
7:54:32 pm dawnjmahoney: RT @LandDDave: It also helps us extend our programming offerings. #astdchapters Agree with this one; M fr a smaller chapter too
7:54:33 pm TerrenceWing: Q1) We don’t have a formal onboarding although we should #astdchapters
7:55:21 pm ErickTaft: @britz Heh! Aren’t you in the land of Genesee Cream Ale? #astdchapters
7:55:24 pm dawnjmahoney: RT @TerrenceWing: Q1) We don’t have a formal onboarding although we should #astdchapters We ALL shd!
7:55:33 pm LandDDave: At the joint SHRM event, we gave out special offers to all attendees (Free meeting, discounted memberships)#astdchapters
7:56:12 pm ErickTaft: Q1) The incoming president usually has a strategic planning session with new board. #astdchapters
7:56:15 pm LandDDave: @britz Hi Mark – you lurking while to shovel snow? #astdchapters
7:56:35 pm dawnjmahoney: #astdchapters Re:Onboarding We do this n r prof lives – why not well n r chapters? My chapter has it going on (again) these days
7:57:12 pm dawnjmahoney: #astdchapters Scheduled, intentional onboarding meeting/event
7:57:15 pm TerrenceWing: @ErickTaft What happens with the old board. Is it too late to strategically plan the new boards year?#astdchapters
7:57:19 pm LandDDave: Q1) Our Onboarding is very weak – probably related to our calling in favors for people to serve on the board.#astdchapters
7:57:38 pm ErickTaft: Q1) We also *try* to introduce them at every post election meeting & the state of the chapter meeting.#astdchapters
7:58:16 pm britz: @ErickTaft mmm, well, im headed out to snowblow for 4th time so a genny might just hit the spot #astdchapters
7:58:25 pm ErickTaft: @TerrenceWing The old board tends to check out if not returning. (had election in Sept last year). #astdchapters
7:58:44 pm LandDDave: Q1) We do have a transitional board meeting in which the old and new board attend, during which there is some onboarding. #astdchapters
7:58:45 pm robinschooling: @ErickTaft @beneubanks hi guys. Popping in briefly! #astdchapters
7:59:10 pm ErickTaft: @RobinSchooling Good evening & happy holidays Robin! #astdchapters
7:59:25 pm dawnjmahoney: RT @LandDDave: Q1) We do have a transitional board meeting in which the old and new board attend, during which there is some onboarding. #astdchapters
7:59:37 pm LandDDave: @britz Gotta admit, I looked at that pic you posted earlier and thought “and the man lives there voluntarily?”#astdchapters
8:00:01 pm TerrenceWing: @ErickTaft Maybe we should consider holding board elections 6 mos in so the new board can shape their year’s strategy??? #astdchapters
8:00:22 pm britz: @ErickTaft @TerrenceWing We try to reallocate our old board members…too valuable to let slip away. #astdchapters
8:00:24 pm dawnjmahoney: RT @ErickTaft: @TerrenceWing Old bd tends 2 check out if not returning. (had election in Sept last year).#astdchapters BUMMER How changed?
8:01:01 pm ErickTaft: @dawnjmahoney We’re having our election now. Downside is its late for planning. #astdchapters
8:01:19 pm dbolen: Hey all, Don Bolen from ATL, just in from our Technology-based Learning SIG e-learning awards #astdchapters
8:01:30 pm TerrenceWing: @dawnjmahoney @ErickTaft extend terms for 18 months so there is a 6 month overlap of old and new directors #astdchapters
8:01:30 pm ErickTaft: 2) What was your onboarding experience as a new chapter leader? #astdchapters
8:02:01 pm dawnjmahoney: @dbolen #astdchapters Welcome Don!
8:02:07 pm ErickTaft: @TerrenceWing I’ll suggest that! Thanks! #astdchapters
8:02:08 pm LandDDave: @britz @ErickTaft @TerrenceWing Our board members don’t leave. The chains help with that. Somehow, they occasionally escape. #astdchapters
8:02:16 pm larrystraining: RT @ErickTaft: 2) What was your onboarding experience as a new chapter leader? #astdchapters
8:02:22 pm robinschooling: Q1: each board member/ function has a 1-1 transition/ hand-off meeting prior 2 Dec board strategic planning mtng #astdchapters
8:02:29 pm dbolen: Q1 ATL we start with a leadership academy in later spring before August elections, with a transition plan#astdchapters
8:02:35 pm ErickTaft: @LandDDave LOL! #astdchapters
8:03:14 pm britz: @LandDDave snow, #syracuse…inseparable. Learn to love it or shoot yourself…there is no middle area…#astdchapters
8:03:19 pm LandDDave: @dbolen Hi Don. Saw some great feedback on your event w/ @janebozarth earlier this week. #astdchapters
8:03:27 pm dawnjmahoney: RT @ErickTaft: 2) What was your onboarding experience as a new chapter leader? #astdchapters
8:03:50 pm ErickTaft: @dbolen Good evening Don! #astdchapters
8:03:54 pm LandDDave: RT @ErickTaft: 2) What was your onboarding experience as a new chapter leader? #astdchapters
8:04:27 pm dbolen: Q2 my original experience, I was appointed since the original VP had moved out of the market, had to go figure it out #astdchapters
8:04:34 pm TerrenceWing: 18 mos term, stagger 50% of positions, hold elections 6 mos before new term for overlap. How does that sound? #astdchapters
8:04:48 pm LandDDave: @britz Seriously, does life go on when that happens? I’d look outside, twitch for a sec, and go back to bed.#astdchapters
8:04:55 pm ErickTaft: @TerrenceWing That might help… #astdchapters
8:04:56 pm dbolen: @LandDDave @dbolen @janebozarth yep great program, folks are still buzzing #astdchapters
8:05:26 pm dbolen: @dawnjmahoney @dbolen hiya Dawn #astdchapters
8:06:01 pm dbolen: @ErickTaft evening Erick! #astdchapters
8:06:09 pm ErickTaft: Q2) I did a lot of leg-work to meet the out-going VP (was a mid-term replacement) & rest of board. #astdchapters
8:07:38 pm dawnjmahoney: #astdchapters Q2) My onbaording consisted of weekly mtgs w/past pres to regain what we’d lost
8:07:50 pm dbolen: @TerrenceWing PMI ATL is moving to a staggered model for their board #astdchapters
8:07:51 pm LandDDave: Q2) I think onboarding is completely dependent on the exiting board member. #astdchapters
8:08:03 pm ErickTaft: @dbolen Sounds like my experience… sometimes on-boarding feels like TAG YOUR IT! for new board members.#astdchapters
8:08:19 pm dawnjmahoney: @LandDDave #astdchapters But what to do when u cant count on them?
8:08:30 pm LandDDave: Q2) If board members care about their role and chapter, they’ll make sure their replacement is onboarded.#astdchapters
8:09:08 pm LandDDave: RT @dawnjmahoney: @LandDDave #astdchapters But what to do when u cant count on them? < Damage Control. We’re trying to document things more.
8:09:24 pm ErickTaft: Good segway into… Q3) Who is responsible for onboarding new chapter leaders? #astdchapters

8:14:13 pm dawnjmahoney: RT @ErickTaft: @dawnjmahoney We have a VP of Professional Development who is also responsible for leadership development for the board. #astdchapters
8:14:33 pm LandDDave: Of course, as I read the responsibilities I just listed, I now think “But why can’t we actually DO that?”.#astdchapters
8:14:35 pm ErickTaft: @dawnjmahoney In theory, they’d be ideal for helping everyone coordinate. #astdchapters
8:15:03 pm LandDDave: RT @ErickTaft:We have a VP of Professional Development who is also responsible for leadership development for the board. #astdchapters< Nice
8:15:21 pm dawnjmahoney: RT @ErickTaft: @dawnjmahoney In theory, they’d be ideal for helping everyone coordinate. #astdchaptersAgreed. Awesome plan; does it work?

8:16:53 pm dawnjmahoney: RT @LandDDave: Of course as I read the resp I just listed, I think “But why can’t we actually DO that?”.#astdchapters Strong leadership!
8:16:56 pm ErickTaft: @dawnjmahoney As long as everyone does their part. It’s an easy chain, er web of responsibility to break.#astdchapters
8:17:35 pm LandDDave: @tracicuth @TerrenceWing It sounds hard to manage, but it might be worth it over transitioning the whole board at once. #astdchapters
8:17:43 pm britz: @LandDDave glass half empty or full? Some see inconvenience..I see skiing! #astdchapters
8:17:43 pm dawnjmahoney: RT @ErickTaft: @dawnjmahoney As long as everyone does their part.It’s an easy chain er web of responsibility to break. #astdchapters Agreed!
8:17:53 pm TerrenceWing: @tracicuth Not at all. Many organizational boards do it so there is always veteran leadership on the board#astdchapters

8:20:00 pm ErickTaft: Q4) What challenges do you encounter when on-boarding new leaders? #astdchapters
8:20:20 pm larrystraining: The synergy of the group has a lot to do with how smooth a transition is. Is there bad blood and a takeover situation? #astdchapters
8:20:29 pm LandDDave: I’m thinking the stagger approach may be a nice way for smaller chapters that have a challenge recruiting board members. #astdchapters
8:20:29 pm ErickTaft: Q4) I think we’re already talking a little bit about this. #astdchapters
8:20:32 pm larrystraining: RT @ErickTaft: Q4) What challenges do you encounter when on-boarding new leaders? #astdchapters
