Last Chance: 2024 Leadership Exchange
If you are a volunteer with ASIS, don’t miss out on Leadership Exchange 2024!
The annual event brings together ASIS volunteers from across the globe to exchange ideas and dive deeper into ASIS’s initiatives and strategic direction. This year, the event is open to all ASIS volunteers and will take place completely virtually.
Leadership Exchange will be hosted from 30 January to 1 February in one 90-minute session each day, each focusing on a different component of volunteering.
Day 1: Engaging the Next Generation of Members and Volunteers. In this session, ASIS invites a generational expert to present on their academic research and to discuss how ASIS can use this knowledge to attract and retain members of younger generations.
Day 2: ASIS Strategic Plan. This session will walk through ASIS’s new strategic plan launching in 2024. Presenters and attendees will discuss how the plan will be implemented and what this means for the future of the organization.
Day 3: ASIS Volunteers Town Hall. Join us for the first Volunteers Town Hall of the year! Attendees will hear from ASIS leadership about their goals for the upcoming year and how volunteers can help support those efforts.
Leadership Exchange is just around the corner, but you can still register! This event is a great opportunity to hear from your fellow volunteers and to help you imagine new opportunities for the future of your role with ASIS.
