This is a great article for business owners and c-level executives who are concerned about workplace performance and employee engagement. What's really amazing is the gap between what IS possible (AND affordable) and what business owners PERCEIVE to be possible and affordable. READ THIS ARTICLE

Really excited about our big news, announcement of Alphabet!
As Sergey and I wrote in the original founders letter 11 years ago, “Google is not a conventional company. We do not intend to become one.” As part of that, we also said that you could expect us to make “smaller bets in areas that might seem very speculative or even strange when compared to our ...

Here is a link to a recording of today's leadership call. PLEASE find time to listen. John has set some good guidelines for the future of Chapters and community outreach in general.

You can also comment on the topics by logging as AIIM members to the aiim.org/community site. John has a post about the future of chapters that has some good conversation started. Thanks!

Tom, John, I have listened to 75% of the presentation so far and have been nodding in agreement all the time. I fully support the 12 strategic principles, but understand this will require time, effort and talking to manage all the change.
But - I believe that this path will help AIIM to grow and provide value to the members now and in the future. 
In an era where anyone can start a community anytime (platforms are for free), it's essential for AIIM to be a central point where info & data professionals can meet, learn, organize themselves, solve problems etc. The proposed changes will help us get there I believe - what are the next steps?

The following post from John Mancini on the AIIM Open Forum created a pretty healthy conversation. Perhaps it will do the same here?? 
__________________________

"We've had a number of Board and internal conversations about engagement and how we build a model of engagement that is appropriate for the web/Internet/Facebook/LinkedIn era.  I should add at this point that LOTS of other associations are having similar conversations right now.

After a lot of round and round, and likely getting way too tactical too soon, I decided to try and write down a draft set of strategic principles for the future.  My thought is that this might serve as the basis for lots of conversations -- both here, in person, and with staff, as well as with the President's Advisory Council -- that could lead us to a discussion at the AIIM Board meetings in September and December.

So here goes.  A set of draft principles -- consider it Draft 1.0 of "Strategic Principles for AIIM Engagement -- 2016."  Would love your thoughts and ideas.

Draft Strategic Principles for AIIM Engagement -- 2016

1) It should be simple, enjoyable and rewarding to be a chapter leader, with the emphasis on leadership and engagement rather than administration.

2) “Chapters” are a way for our community to organize to meet and discuss their particular business problems online and in person. Although “chapters” are currently defined solely in terms of local geography, local geography is not the only way for AIIM community members to organize.

3) Chapters should be extremely easy to create, join, leave, and close as needs change.

4) Chapters should be as open and as friction-free as possible – i.e., professional membership in AIIM should not be required to engage in a chapter activity.

5) Chapter growth should be a top priority of AIIM HQ.

6) It doesn't matter what size chapters start at, as long as they continue to grow over time.

7) Chapters should be fun, engaging and collaborative to attract a younger audience.

8) The structure of chapters should be flat and flexible, but also standard.

9) We need to move beyond our current rigid structures driven by legalistic bylaws and their associated title-based structures (treasurer, secretary, president, vice president).

10) At the same time, in order to have a structure that is predictable, supportable, and scalable, there needs to be a consistent organizational and operational framework for chapters.

11) All new initiatives should be in this structure.

12) All existing chapters should fold into this structure at an agreed-upon point in the future.

Good morning John.

Before doing any new structural changes within the AIIM organization, I would first review now your current structure collaborates within itself.

I have the AIIM BPM Masters cert. and Professional membership from the London offices when I returned to the US, I tried to sign up on the US offices site. No go. I was told i needed to join AIIM as a  member.

I explained I had a membership it was through the London offices. Still no go. Why would this be and issue, if the organization had good communications with itself? If the membership expired which it had not or the membership from London did not transfer which it should then how come no one could tell me these seemingly simple operational items? 

So, before introducing something new try reviewing improvements of the old. It may help to read my article on Change Management.

Anyone have experience with this fitness tracker?
There's no shortage of activity trackers to help you keep an eye on how much exercise or general activity you get each day. Some are geared toward people just looking to get up off their duffs more, while other are suited for hobbyist runners. Some activity trackers are safe to go in the pool, and still others excel at sleep analysis. Garmin is one such company that's offering a very diverse range of devices that cater to different kinds of peopl...

John has helped us on a number of occasions. He advised us on color choices, kept the house clean (even while they were here working!) The finished product looked great. Not to mention some great advise he shared on smaller projects I wanted to tackle myself. Highly recommended.

We began our relationship with STA in 2009 when the oldest entered as a Freshman. Not being from this area or having any prior knowledge of the school I was very hesitant until we attended an open house. It has been a great decision. The leadership fundamentals the boys receive from the military program are something you won't find anywhere else. The all male environment encourages/allows (not sure which) the boys to compete academically as naturally as they do with sports. They learn to take pride in their appearance, (they will begin ironing their own shirts!) Faculty and staff are top notch and doing a wonderful job. Our oldest is at college sophomore in Chicago and doing outstanding. We have a senior who's had a great experience and has chosen and been accepted at UST. Our freshman is loving every minute of it and our 8th grader can't wait to start at STA next year.
