Hello Members,

Here we are again, at the end of another IMA program season. We have been busy this year – we received our NASBA Certification allowing us to provide quality, certified professional education to our members under our own license. This required several people working together to complete all of the steps, and the help of Martin Brossman for presenting our ‘test’ for the NASBA Board. It is now our responsibility to keep our records ourselves, and it gives us some flexibility in when we choose to hold our Conferences. A big THANK YOU to those who worked on this project.

We helped a large family for Christmas this year. Both parents had some medical issues, making holding full time jobs extremely difficult. With 5 children, they were very happy we were willing to help provide some Christmas cheer. Thank you for those who worked on that event.

Our Chapter is moving into the 21st Century in storage and sharing opportunities using Google Docs. Using this shared ‘cloud’ we are able to keep our files confidential, and the ability to give and remove permission is very easy. This will be very helpful for the Scholarship Committee to receive applications and to review them without all being in the same place. We are using it to house our mailing lists and may move financials to this space too. Thank you Cathi Hall, this is truly something we needed to be nudged into doing!

Let’s have a big turnout for our last meeting of the year. We have planned to hear from Josh Walker from Transportation Insight. Josh is in charge of Talent Acquisition and he will be discussing the challenges of working with several generations. How do you attract and keep employees when each group is looking for something different? Low unemployment is nice but that makes this more of an issue than ever. Please read more about Josh in this Newsletter.

I look forward to seeing you on May 12th! A week earlier this month due to our Asheville Conference on May 19th.

Best Regards,
Ellen Knauf
