I recently had the opportunity to work with several of the planning committee members of the Build Business 2011 conference. We were together in Houston volunteering as judges for the MCAs. The idea came up to create a couple videos to promote the national conference.
The participants of these videos would like to ask you to share these videos with your chapters in whatever creative ways you can. Maybe you can share the YouTube links in your chapter newsletters or download the videos and show them at your chapter events. The message in these clips can help a member get buy-in from their bosses when asking to attend the conference.
The first video required some trial and error on location, and several takes to get the content recorded. But in the end, it all came together. Programs Chair Jenifer Johnson, Conference Co-Chair Mitch Levitt, and National Board President Carolyn Ferguson take turns speaking about the sessions at the conference.
In the second video, the three National Board presidents - Immediate Past President, Tom Smith; National Board President, Carolyn Ferguson; and National Board President-elect, Frank Lippert speak of the benefits of attending the national conference. They provide some great ideas to take back to your boss when asking to go to the conference.
Thank you to the "cast" for doing an outstanding job, off the cuff. Special thanks to Mike Totsch for being the "Producer". Mike organized the cast and helped develop the content.
Hope to see you all at the conference in Chicago, August 24-26th. It's going to great!
