As the Director for Professional Development on the AIIP Board, I oversaw the Virtual Events Committee that Liz Co-Chaired. Liz’s information management expertise ensures that the committee works very collaboratively. She creates, organizes and updates captures of committee actions and documentation. The committee works seamlessly as they produce, on average, four or more events per month. Our Virtual Events are a tremendous benefit to our members and Liz enthusiastically contributes topic ideas and session content on topics that align with our strategies and mission as a nonprofit professional organization. Her openness and curiosity have sparked fantastic conversations during our Virtual Events.
Drawing from her knowledge management expertise, Liz spearheaded a new event format, which is modeled from David Gurteen’s Knowledge/World Café. Our InfoPro Cafés have strengthened our community, connections and culture for our org as well as introduce attendees to new tools for social exchange learning.
