There are currently 18 NAMIC chapters, each having a board of directors that is solely responsible for understanding and executing NAMIC’s strategy at the local level. These boards are responsible for managing a cadre of volunteers that effectively execute various networking and professional development events and programs. They also oversee events that recognize people of influence in the media and entertainment industry in their respective markets. Most importantly, they are responsible for effectively engaging their members and providing value within their respective markets.
The NAMIC Chapter Leadership Forum offers NAMIC chapter leaders the opportunity to hone their leadership and business and strategic management skills amongst peers, in an environment that fosters professional and personal growth. The two-day meeting allows chapter leaders the opportunity to explore alternative techniques and approaches, while also sharing best practices, challenges and risks. Attendees also participate in team building exercises and receive instruction and guidance on how to best utilize the technology, and other tools provided by NAMIC, most effectively.
In all, the Chapter Leadership Forum provides NAMIC’s chapter leaders a place and opportunity to develop skills essential to effectively and efficiently managing volunteers, administering quality events and programs and growing their chapter’s membership. The Forum is equally vital to the success of incoming chapter leaders and those that have been in their roles, serving as an incubator for new ideas and fresh approaches to common challenges that all chapters have faced and will encounter.
