CB and COI Networking Reception —Your Volunteer Engagement staff team want to send a “shout-out” to the CB and COI leaders who participated in the CB and COI Networking Reception on Thursday, August 16. What an amazing collection of group displays and activities throughout the room!
The attendee turnout was one of the largest to date – due in part to increased promotion by many of the groups to invite their members to be sure to stop by and see them at this event!
CB Leader Meeting — Over 40 CB leaders along with members of the AADE Board of Directors attended the CB Leader Meeting held prior to the CB and COI Networking Reception. This meeting was in response to a request made by several leaders at January's Leadership Meeting to have additional time to network and meet with one another. Lisa Hodgson, Member Affiliates Liaison to the Board of Directors, facilitated the discussion with CB leaders providing suggestions on how to engage new members, ways in which a CB can support LNGs and how to be a fiscally responsible CB. Gina McClure, AADE’s Chief Operating Officer, led a discussion on what a future CB looks like — asking attendees to provide their vision for the future of their state and information on the barriers currently holding them back.
Read the CB leader feedback from this meeting on the AADE State CB Leader Meeting Minutes.
COI Leader Meeting — Kevin Schaefer, AADE Online Community Program Manager, provided key information to assist COI leaders in utilizing their community to its fullest extent — i.e. by writing a blog, uploading a file monthly, actively engaging members in the discussion forums. Please see the detailed list of suggestions Kevin shared in his meeting handout: COI leadership Meeting 2018.
