The best ideas are often stolen.
With that in mind, I’d like to make the first announcement regarding our 2016 National Conference, which will be held in Mobile, Ala., on Nov. 16-17.
At our last conference, you might remember the Best Practices Presentations, where local programs were invited to share something that worked well for them.
Those are always popular because they can lead to new ideas for other programs. Plus, it’s just enjoyable when programs are allowed to brag a bit.
This year, however, instead of asking you to come up with a Best Practice to share at the conference, I am challenging each program to produce a promotional video for your program that we can show in Mobile.
This is where the stealing part comes in. You might remember the USW/U.S. Steel-Fairfield program creating such a video last year. And if you don’t, it’s linked below. In case you were curious, Fairfield chose to hire an outside production company and had the project pretty well wrapped up in just a few weeks.
Feel free to get creative. The video can be whatever you choose it to be – an advertisement for your program, a spotlight on a certain class or project, even a “through the years” retrospective. We just ask that you keep it to 5 minutes in length and that it is web accessible.
If you have any questions, you can leave them in the Comments section below or contact your Program Specialist.
Remember, this is your chance to highlight your program at this year’s conference. Let’s see what you can come up with!
