This month I would like to share with you how the Chapter defines its programming and how you could influence the program types and topics we produce.
First of all, there are many ways a good idea could be generated and implemented.
It could be as simple as a member coming up with a topic and sharing it with the Education Committee, or it could be a write-in in the evaluation form after a class, or if Corporate Relations Committee identifies an important topic via conversation with an industry executive.
In all of the above cases, the second step is to identify the best speaker, if the topic is selected. And the best source sometimes is the same person who’d suggested the topic. Interestingly enough, we had a number of classes in the last several years, when the same person, who’d suggested the idea, identified the instructor, had also offered to produce the class at their facility and to provide full logistical support.
The benefits are obvious – the “idea generator” has a class he or she wanted to attend, attends it for free with an additional colleague (as a member of the hosting organization) at their office location, and makes it possible for their colleagues to attend the class without traveling and sometimes with additional discounts.
Sounds like a great deal, isn’t it?
If it is, please share your ideas with Education@isacany.org or me President@isacany.org.
President, ISACA New York Metropolitan Chapter
