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

8:41:01 pm ErickTaft: @larrystraining Who was the presenter? #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 ūüėČ 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

9:15:25 pm larrystraining: I would like to change the number of my last post. #astdchapters
9:15:32 pm larrystraining: Q5) CORE responsibilities should be written into functional job descriptions so they are not forgotten until it is too late. #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? ūüėČ #astdchapters
9:17:24 pm dbolen: @ErickTaft @dbolen 110 ish #astdchapters
9:17:26 pm WaltHansmann: RT @LandDDave: Wait… What’s today’s date? ūüėČ 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? ūüėČ #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

9:03:44 pm dbolen: @ErickTaft think many in transition find that they have neglected building a network, holy $@&# I need to network, we can help #astdchapters

9:08:43 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

9:12:31 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

9:12:44 pm dbolen: Q2 in ATL org member $250 for three, each additional $75. Way simpler than before #astdchapters

8:49:12 pm dbolen: Q1 РATL employs both executive board and board of directors to build a plan. Use SWOT as starting ppont #astdchapters
8:49:21 pm TerrenceWing: Q1 Nothing creative on this end. Twice a year at a brd mtg we brainstorm and solicit volunteers to make it happen#astdchapters
8:50:25 pm¬†ErickTaft: Q1) Besides throwing darts? ūüôā We’ve used the SWOT analysis approach, flip charting ideas & funneling down.¬†#astdchapters#ASTD
8:50:33 pm larrystraining: Q1 We have been working in a survival mode as opposed 2 an active plan. Existing plans were changed/dropped by new leadership. #astdchapters
8:51:15 pm dbolen: Q1 our challenge is building out the action steps & executing. Now have the president elect own the plan and 2x yr checkpoint#astdchapters
8:51:22 pm LandDDave: Q1- this is an area we need to improve upon. By the time one board gets rolling, their term seems to end. #astdchapters

8:53:29 pm¬†dbolen: @LandDDave Q1 that’s why we’ve set an owner so the plan can run across terms or we look 2x/ yr and tweak¬†#astdchapters
8:53:32 pm larrystraining: Q1 Does size of chapter contribute to planning success or failure? #astdchapters
8:53:53 pm¬†LandDDave: @TerrenceWing How did ‘Survival mode’ make you lose members? I have an idea but would like to hear more.#astdchapters
8:54:15 pm LandDDave: RT @larrystraining: Q1 Does size of chapter contribute to planning success or failure? #astdchapters

8:54:51 pm LandDDave: I definitely think so. RT @larrystraining: Q1 Does size of chapter contribute to planning success or failure? #astdchapters
8:55:01 pm TerrenceWing: @LandDDave The chapter has been all over the place with programming and initiatives. We lost our value proposition.#astdchapters
8:55:33 pm¬†dbolen: RT @larrystraining: Q1 Does size of chapter contribute to planning success or failure? don’t think so, it’s leadership#astdchapters
8:55:45 pm LandDDave: @cindyhugg good to know Рthanks. #astdchapters

8:56:35 pm cindyhugg: @LandDDave its especially hard on pres because becomes 6 year term. unless you do 2 yrs for all but pres position.#astdchapters
8:56:47 pm TerrenceWing: @LandDDave @larrystraining I think the demographic is more important than the size. But size probably matters a little(no pun) #astdchapters
8:57:13 pm¬†dbolen: Q1 re: chapter size, think it’s related to stubborn leadership or more kindly a committed champion to see the plan along#astdchapters
8:57:39 pm LandDDave: I think smaller chapters have difficulty with leadership , not so much in terms of quality but quantity. #astdchapters
8:58:02 pm dbolen: @LandDDave yes, prez-elect is on the board of directors #astdchapters
8:58:03 pm ErickTaft: Q2) What tools or resources help you with the planning process? #astdchapters #ASTD

8:50:45 pm dbolen: Q1) How does your chapter advertise events? #astdchapters #ASTD

8:52:09 pm TerrenceWing: We use email blasts, weekly eNewsletter, and a monthly postcard. We’re looking for more innovative approaches #astd #astdchapters

8:53:31 pm TerrenceWing: We’re building or Social Media campaign but we have to build the network first or we’re just talking to an empty void. #astdchapters

8:53:51 pm LandDDave: Q1) this is an improvement opportunity for us. Currently we only advertise via e-mail blasts and flyers at events. #astdchapters

8:54:06 pm dbolen: @TerrenceWing #astd #astdchapters we used postcards and felt that made no difference in attendance, just added cost, complexity

8:54:22 pm TerrenceWing: RT @LandDDave this is an improvement opportunity for us. Currently we only advertise via e-mail blasts and flyers at events. #ASTDchapters

8:59:06 pm dbolen: Q2 What advertising have you tried that has not worked? #astdchapters #ASTD

8:59:59 pm TerrenceWing: @dbolen We actually downgraded from a newsletter to a postcard #astd #astdchapters

9:00:56 pm TerrenceWing: Q2 Seems like everyone is numb to traditional adv but it does keep the brand fresh and present #astd #astdchapters

9:02:14 pm dbolen: Q2 anyone used paid advertising on a website? other newsletter? other association’s website? #ASTD #astdchapters

9:03:07 pm TerrenceWing: Q2: I am not sure if it is the vehicle or the event being advertised. A “WOW” event would stand out on a napkin #astd #astdchapters
