For me the onset of fall is the restart button for many activities that I’m involved with. I especially enjoy the return of the IMA LI Chapter ’s Dinner meeting program. Our September program was a great success! Everything from the wonderful weather that allowed us to host our cocktail hour outside to the extended two hour program featuring Sam Antar. It was nice to see familiar faces and meet new people at this well-attended event (see pages 7 & 8). If you did not have an opportunity to attend this event please join us for our next dinner meeting which will be held on October 18, 2016 (note this is the third Tuesday of the month). The topic is “Taking
‘Bout My Generation” and will feature Rob Fishman from Sandler Training speaking about effective tips to help understand and improve communications in the workplace and beyond.
In addition to our regular meeting, our Student Activities committee in conjunction with our Employment committee will be sponsoring a student career workshop prior to our regular meeting. The workshop will consist of a panel of professionals from Canon USA and Deloitte covering areas such as interviewing skills, career opportunities and paths; and personal brand development. This program is offered free to Students, Professors and Faculty of our local university community. Participants will have an opportunity to network after the event. Please take a moment to introduce yourselves to our student members (see page 6).
Our newsletter covers a wide array topics and many aspects of what our chapter has to offer. I invite you to read our newsletter and visit our website for more information about our programs. Please feel free to reach out to us if there is any way that you feel that we can serve you better.
