With more 190 ASHI chapter leaders attending from a record-setting 67 chapters, 41 states, a Canadian province and Puerto Rico, this year’s Chapter Leadership Days was bigger and better than ever. Attendees heard presentations on finding new leaders, ethics and regulation myths, and got a look at a Smart Track module.
For the first time, the Chapter Relations Committee held a four-hour “boot camp” training session for new and struggling chapters. The workshop was geared to help those chapters get up and running quickly. Five leaders from four chapters and the new Puerto Rico SIG were the guests of the committee—all expenses paid. Budget permitting, the Chapter Relations Committee will repeat the boot camp in 2007.
