This year’s webinar series, which is being coordinated by association Chair-Elect Jeremy Harris, ACE, president/CEO of the Long Beach Area (CA) Chamber and a task force of W.A.C.E. Board members, includes a broad spectrum of topics that should appeal to chamber professionals from chambers throughout the West.,
“Our annual webinar series has always provided valuable and timely best practices on a variety of topics and issues that we all face,” said Harris. “This year is no different and the series serves as an additional tool in our toolbox for professional development in our industry.”
2021 Webinar Lineup
Although presenters were still being finalized as the Insider went to press, below is this year’s lineup of webinars that will all be on Wednesdays at 10 a.m. (Pacific):
• September 15: “The New Office Place.” The dust has finally begun to settle on a tumultuous last 18 months. Out of these ashes arises the new office place. Listen to what colleagues are doing to align with the changing needs.
• October 6: “Communication Tools — Including Podcasts and Social Media Tips.” Part of a chamber’s secret sauce is the community-wide perspective we have about how different businesses are solving problems and finding success. Chambers are in a unique position to curate useful information — and to tell stories from which others can learn. Learn how some of the best are using traditional and newer tools to be essential sources in their communities.
• November 3: “Building Your Community: Learning from Inter-City Visits.” Our challenges — and solutions — may feel unique to us, but most often others have dealt with issues similar enough that there are lessons we can learn from their experiences. Listen to how chambers are putting learning to action through inter-city visits.
• December 1: “Lessons Learned and What’s on the Horizon for Chambers in 2022.” What lies ahead and how chambers will position themselves for it is one of the most discussed topics around the West. Join the conversation as we will hear perspectives and insights from leaders in the industry.
Registration for the four-part series is $120 for W.A.C.E. members/$240 for nonmembers and will be available until September 8.
