Summer has come to a close and with it the end of 3rd quarter 2014. I am happy to share the accomplishments of the past few months with you!
Our volunteers are the engine that makes the Chapter run. This past quarter the Volunteer webpage was enhanced and the Volunteer Relationship Management System (VRMS) continues to allow professionals to search for volunteer opportunities. Planning for the Volunteer of the Month Recognition Program is complete with the launch scheduled early in the 4th quarter.
The Chapter maintained its rank as the 4th largest in the world and 3rd largest in the United States with 778 new members joining year-to-date. During the 3rd quarter, “Newcomers” events for approximately 45 new members were conducted and membership was promoted during the monthly Dinner Meetings via a committee promotional table and Table Networking activities.
The Chapter celebrated Career Month in July including the annual Recruiters Panel Dinner Meeting and the Quarterly Networking Social. These events, open to members and non-members, provided an opportunity to meet and interview with Atlanta metro area recruiters. “Speed Recruiting“ was the highlight of the event with 75 of the 126 attendees participating. The event was a great success and is in line with the Chapter’s goal to provide valuable networking opportunities to the membership.
