We have been hard at work, trying to organize an informative and event filled year for you all! I am committed, as your President, to make my best effort to send out a monthly newsletter. This one is brief, but it contains the calendar of upcoming events (with Registration links), and hopefully this information will intrigue to join us!
We are shaking the association up this year - Reality is, we all know how difficult it can be to get out of the office to attend a meeting, or to convince your company to pay for it. However, we also know the importance of earning CEUs (for those with certifications to maintain) and in keeping current on the trends. We asked for feedback in our June call, and will continue to ask through a survey (coming soon!). Our network can only be as strong as it's members, and we need you to join in and be active in order to maintain ARMA CT as a viable organization. There are many opportunities to get involved, whether by joining the board, assisting on a committee, speaking, or writing an article.
Please be sure to register on the website at http://armaconnecticut.com - there is a member's only area that contains links to the ARMA International session of the month (Free to members), a job board, message board, and more to come.
For the upcoming year, we will be kicking it off early with a happy hour in Milford on September 5th. There is no cost to attend, appetizers and the first drink is on the association! Please register so that we have a head count. The primary format of our monthly meetings will be via a live webinar, starting on September 20th at lunchtime. For our members, if you register prior to September 20th, you can pay one fee ($50.00), and be registered for all webinars during the year, as well as an in-person luncheon meeting in December. Otherwise, the cost to attend each webinar will be $5 for members, and $10 for non-members.
Currently, we are working to plan an all day educational event in May, to be held at Mohegan Sun. The details are still being finalized, so stay tuned! We are coordinating a package that will offer the educational sessions, networking, food, fun, and a discounted hotel package. If you are interested in assisting with this event, please reach out to a board member!
Looking forward to a great year for ARMA CT, and hope to see you all soon! Please check the calendar section for event registration links.
Enjoy your last few days of summer!
ARMA CT President
