Fellow communicators and all-star editors at sister blog PlusPoint made a very good point to me: Engage has fallen off the blogging
wagon! So Theresa Davis and I have rededicated ourselves to making sure we’re
finding ways to get the latest news to you on this channel.
So what’s been happening you ask? Quite a bit.
We’ve launched a new portal at mpiweb.org: Professional
Development On Demand, a.k.a. PD On Demand. Through this section of the site,
we are able to bring more than 130 hours of CEU eligible content, which
includes video and audio from events and webinars, which planners can use
toward industry certification. We recognized that streamlining this library of
information makes visiting the website easier for members who are preparing for
the CMP or looking to maintain CEU hours. So if you haven’t gotten a chance to
interact with the PD On Demand portal, consider this your introduction and go learn.
What else, what else? Oh yeah, the redesigned WEC 2011 experience. It’s kind of a big deal. New rules of engagement in our
post-recession industry mean that professionals need brain, face, brand and
personal time. We addressed this with the introduction of attendee driven
content like Solution Rooms and the Hive and the continuation of the highly
successful Hosted Buyer Program. The industry has noticed and responded with a
resounding “yes!” to the WEC 2011 experience.
