Congratulations to the October Chapter of the Month, Maryland!
In 2021, the Maryland Chapter wanted to improve its succession planning strategy while also providing its chapter members with additional membership benefits. To meet these goals, the board decided to develop Communities of Practice within the chapter to allow for additional leadership opportunities as a step toward becoming a board member. In addition, specialized forums were created for members to discuss industry challenges, APTD® and CPTD® certification, and more. As a result, the chapter increased its engagement, recruited new chapter leaders, and improved its joint membership numbers.
