We had many exciting events take place last weekend at the 2015 PBA Fall BoardMeeting, including a brand new event, educational presentations, and lots of money raised for both PaCAH and BUILD PAC. Read on for more information!
EOC Training & Development Day
Thank you to all of our presenters who engaged with our Executive Officers and leadership during the EOC Training & Development Day! It was a fun day full of learning many new ways to make our associations better.
- Rick Galardini of JRG Advisors presented a quick overview on what’s coming up in 2016, as well as answered any questions our EO’s had about health insurance, enrollment, and more!
- Donna Oliver of NAHB’s Federation Services had a great session on subjects like Maximizing Executive Officer Effectiveness, Recruiting Members to Retain, and Effective Committees and Volunteers.
- Andy Bergren and Chelsey Leigh of Group Two Advertising gave us a high-energy, action-packed presentation on Marketing & Social Media for the Association – it even included a section on the Myers-Briggs Indicator!
