President's Workshop - Sept. 22


    My theme of Be Engaged will be the center point of the 2017 President’s Workshop. The goal of MSPE’s annual workshop is to bring you up-to-date on the activities, goals and objectives planned for the society.

    Also included is discussion related to the new NSPE Business Model that MSPE will vote on later this year:  Intgrated vs. Non- Integrated option.

    I intend for the Workshop to provide suggestions, tools and engage the group in best-practice discussions related to what chapters and groups are doing that works. We will also discuss expectations related to chapter and practice divison officers.

    This event is a working session and hopefully everyone will walk/drive away with some new and fresh ideas for consideration to attract/retain members and run effective chapter operations. 

    Please complete the registration form as directed and return by next Friday, September 15, 2017. 

    Looking forward to your attendance!

    Thanks, RON BLACK, P.E., PMP
