January 2021 Chapter of the Month

Capital Region

The Capital Region Chapter faced an ultimatum earlier in 2020: adapt to a virtual environment or cancel its annual talent development conference. The chapter chose to adapt and hold its annual conference virtually. The team planning the conference was already deep into the process and had to adjust its plans to shift to a virtual platform. The two-day conference was done via one Zoom link and had 12 sessions. Having one link for the conference allowed attendees to be flexible with work and home schedules to attend sessions when they were available. The conference content and technology experience had an 87 percent overall satisfaction rate, with an average of 30 attendees per session. The chapter had a 100 percent interest from participants to attend the conference again next year.
