Continuing Education Forums, A Year in Review

IIDA Forum3

The Forums team would like to extend big thank you to everyone who attended, volunteered and sponsored forums events this past year. It is because of you, that we had such a successful year to date! We would like to share a few highlights from this fun and educational year.

Increased Attendance
Overall event attendance was up by 10%! This was not only great for networking opportunities, but enhanced each presentation with interesting conversation and audience participation.

A Focus on Education
CEU credits were offered at 4 forum events and the Design Crawl…with the March event offering 3 credits, a total of 7 CEU opportunities were available through forums events!

Community Involvement
Because of your support and attendance of the October Forum, $1000.00 dollars in funds was donated to the local nonprofit, Harper’s Playground.

Enhanced Sponsorship Opportunities
This year we formally introduced the opportunity to sponsor an entire forum! This opportunity offers  increased benefits such as exclusive sponsorship recognition in event related communications, verbal recognition at the beginning of the forum and a 5 min segment to speak on the behalf of the sponsors company and space to display your product of choosing.

In planning for forums in the 2015-2016 board year, we are committed to continuing to enhance program value, address member interests and provide relevant and educational opportunities. Thanks again for your support, and we look forward to learning and connecting with everyone during upcoming forums events!
