Last weekend I was fortunate enough to attend the National Christ Child Conference in Bethesda, Maryland. And what a great experience it was for me. Meeting dynamic woman from all over the country (the farthest being Seattle) doing many of the things our chapter is doing right here in Summit. Everyone was helping needy children. And the best part was whether it was a large or small chapter we all we facing the same situations.
On Saturday, there was a great speaker Susan Ellis from a company from Philadephia called Energizeinc. She started with a question regarding our chapters that made us all chuckle, “Is it still your Grandmothers volunteering?” Im happy to report we are not. For me, it was food for thought on how we manage our volunteers, how we keep them engaged while dealing with the 24/7 communication we are exposed; new social networking forums such as blogs (my first one), YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and smartphones.
It was a busy weekend but I returned feeling even more pumped about our chapter and what is ahead of us.
