Cricket McWilliams represents Chapter at Leadership Conference in October
Posted: Nov 06, 2018
In October 2018 South Plains Chapter professional member Jeromy (Cricket) McWilliams, Risk Control Consultant with BITCO Insurance represented our Chapter at the annual ASSP Leadership Conference in Chicago. Region III ASSP was able to provide a $1200 scholarship to offset a portion of the travel costs.
Cricket had the opportunity to participate in several workshops and sessions that shared best practices in leadership, including How to Deliver Member Value through Chapter Leadership; How to plan a Professional Development Conference (PDC) and Leveraging Conflict’s Creative Potential. Attendees at the conference also heard updates from ASSP’s current President Rixio Medina, CSP, CPP.
The goal of the annual conference is to provide training for Chapter Leadership and give them an opportunity to collaborate, network and improve their leadership skills.
One of the big questions that always come up is about CEU’s and obtaining credit from ASSP. Continuing education units are available for programs that are at least 3 hours in length, or as an option 3-1 hour programs, so it is possible to have ASSP Chapter meetings as approved for CEU’s, but Society requires a 4-week advanced notice and documentation prior to that approval. See links below for additional information.
This was our Chapter’s first time to have one of our volunteer leaders attend this event. We sincerely appreciate Cricket and BITCO Insurance for setting aside the time to attend this important event and represent our South Plains Chapter.
