RECAP - CANYS ‘Vision 2020’ Leadership Conference in Saratoga Springs provided insights, tools and networking for 64 attendees!
Organized by CANYS and supported by ACCE, US Chamber, Membership Monday, numerous NYS Chambers and sponsors National Grid, Collette Vacations, ChamberMaster, EnergyNext, Leadercast, NHCG and Sprint, the conference provided terrific opportunities for attendees to network, learn, interact and socialize with chamber executives and staff from around the state. With presentations from Beth Bronder at ACCE, Sara Armstrong and Nick Vaugh from the US Chamber, Jim Durland of Membership Monday and a host of other speakers on topics of relevance for Chambers of Commerce, the takeaways from these two days were valuable and memorable.
In addition to sharing some photos from the conference, presentations on the Horizon Initiative from Beth Bronder at ACCE, and the Leadership Analyzed from our keynote speaker General Bill Martin are available via email. Simply email Peter Aust at email@example.com and request a copy of the powerpoint presentation be sent to you. Don't hesitate to take a moment to refresh yourself (if you attended) or enlighten yourself (if you were unable to attend) with these presentations.
As our state's professional development association for Chambers of Commerce, we are dedicated to providing members with education and insight into the latest trends and issues facing our chambers and communities, along with being a forum to connect and collaborate with peers from throughout New York State. Chamber professionals who succeed long-term have a willingness to never stop learning and invest in the development of their staff members, realizing that an educated, committed team is key to an impactful Chamber. I encourage you to tap into the resources available through CANYS. Don't hesitate to reach out to any of us on The CANYS board if we can be of assistance to you.
