Thanks for the Charlotte Chapter material.  It seems to be getting a lot of + traction out there.  I am hoping that the CPC will add it to the chapter resources area.


I scanned the doc quickly and found many areas that can get us off to a running start….

  • Leadership vision, enthusiasm and dedication
  • Single location is extremely important. ISPI at UNCC
  • Programming ……. Programs drive attendance and attendance usually drives finance (along with workshops)
  • It’s not about food
  • Avoiding burnout of board members
  • Marketing is crucial – scope out the competition and identify the “who are we missing and then seek them out
  • Keep costs as low as feasible
  • ISPI is run as a professional organization, but also as a business. (Some professional organizations don’t have an adequate business focus)
  • Use of new media, distance learning, Twitter, etc.
