President’s Message - “January is always a good month for behavioral economics: Few things illustrate self-control as vividly as New Year's resolutions. February is even better, though, because it lets us study why so many of those resolutions are broken.” Sendhil Mullainathan
I saw this quote and instantly thought it applied to our personal and professional lives. In January, we tend to set the bar as to what we want to achieve in the New Year, and, after the adrenaline high wears off, we can be left feeling deflated. Are you ready to roll up your sleeves and dig into the WHY that happens?
January was one of our two business meetings of the year. We didn’t have much on the docket in terms of “business” so I turned it over to the membership for an open discussion about our chapter. A common pain point in organizations today is membership. We all have wonderful intentions of recruiting, committing and engaging new members to EWI of Harrisburg, and we have focused on that for the past couple of years. We have been successful with some, but the turnover rate at many companies has become higher, especially with the younger generations. Because of that, we lose members and also the commitments from the executives. At the meeting, we had a good brainstorm session amongst our chapter’s membership (the veterans and newbies), and our goal the next couple of months is to focus on the WHY of EWI.
Why does your leadership team at your firm want you to be involved in EWI? Why are you still a member of EWI? Why do you come to the monthly meetings? Why are you involved in EWI’s committees or WHY not? Why did you leave EWI? Finding out the WHYs will only help build our future!
I am looking forward to our February 15th Firm Night at Vision Resources!
Sincerely, Julie Young, Capital BlueCross, Chapter President, 2017-2018
