New Educational Sessions Planned for Fall

As the Education Chair for the ACG-Portland Chapter, I thought you would appreciate hearing about our exciting plans for a new series of educational sessions beginning this fall.

These one hour sessions will precede the social hour and Peer Growth meetings you currently enjoy and will cover topics more practical and technical in nature than traditional Peer Growth presentations. Our goal is that the information shared in these sessions will have real world application, and are intended to be highly interactive with attendance limited to approximately twenty five members. 

Some of these sessions will be led by chapter sponsors and members, and we encourage members to consider leading a session if they have competencies that would benefit their peers , e.g  use of key performance indicators, preparing for an M&A transaction, successful ERP implementation, or successful strategic planning.  Our primary requirements for participation are that they not be sales presentations, and that they focus specifically on growing a business.

More information will be forthcoming.  In the meantime, if you have ideas for sessions or would like to be considered as a facilitator please reach out to me or anyone on the Board at acgportland@acg.org.
