Associations Focus: Honing Skills
Jun 1, 2006 12:00 PM
Seminars, training programs, and leadership conferences offer resources for professional growth.
EXPANDED MEMBER RESOURCES
Association membership already offers access to comprehensive information, education, and peer networking opportunities. In the last few months, InfoComm International has instituted programs and materials to offer its members even more services and resources. The new BusinessKit CD, for instance, includes HR software for AV managers and templates for presentations, agreements, and forms, as well as white papers and information about local and national government relations issues. Another resource is About AV, a PowerPoint presentation for association staff and members to use for meetings with people unfamiliar with the breadth of the industry. The association also provides member access to current state-by-state listings of the licensing requirements for electrical contractors, electricians, alarm installers, and professional engineers, as well as those performing low voltage/limited energy work. State-by-state information on licensure initiatives is also available.
InfoComm also provides expanded opportunities for member discussion and education through regional roundtable events, webinars, and councils and committees. Free, one-day roundtable events feature expert speakers discussing hot topics in the AV world, while webinars offer expert insight and a chance for members to be part of the discussion about issues ranging from licensing and education to certification and best practices. InfoComm International councils provide opportunities for members to focus on common concerns and goals. Committees guide the planning and development of InfoComm and membership policies as well as education and training programs. Volunteer members develop programs that benefit InfoComm International members and the industry as a whole. Members can enhance their business networks and exercise their leadership skills through involvement in these industry-shaping bodies.
Finally, developed in response to member input, the first InfoComm Executive Business Conference will be held Sept. 22-23, 2006, in Chicago. This thought-provoking event will offer in-depth coverage of human resource issues and project management, and is designed for AV business owners, principals, executives, and their direct reports.
