SITElines | Issue 1 Wednesday, April 18 SITE Canada Members Only at the Art Gallery of Ontario Tuesday, May 8 SITE Canada Halifax Meeting Wednesday, June 6 SITE Canada Summer Social Monday, August 13 SITE Canada Golf Tournament Wednesday, September 26 SITE Canada September Chapter Meeting Wednesday, November 7 SITE Canada Education Day Wednesday, November 14 SITE Canada Vancouver Meeting Wednesday, December 12 SITE Canada Holiday Social Our board evaluated the results of last year's member survey in order to determine how best to serve our members and continue the years of success that came before us. After considering the feedback from the survey, the Board has determined that 2018 will be the year in which we help our members increase the ROI on their membership. In order to achieve this objective, we have undertaken many initiatives beyond the events we plan that will provide value and education to our members. Some of these initiatives include: • Exclusive, members-only events • Enhanced and improved networking opportunities at the events we host • Satellite educational and networking events in Vancouver and Halifax • Providing education on the resources available to our members outside of our own chapter including tools available from the global organization and the SITE Foundation • New content in our SITElines newsletter that will include more articles about industry trends, policies and news • Creating new ways for our members to connect with members in other chapters • A sibling partnership with SITE Ireland to learn how to assist our supplier members in increasing their ROI (SITE Ireland is 87% supplier based and very successful). Read further in SITELines to learn more about this partnership. In addition to the items above, SITE Canada, with the support of the SITE Foundation, is very excited to partner with Meetings + Incentive Travel magazine on their annual Travel Market Survey this year. We will be co-sponsoring the survey and hosting an educational session to discuss the results at Incentive Works in August. SITE members will have a special registration code to sign up for this event. The Board of Directors is looking forward to working with our members this year and we welcome your participation. In 2017 we had over 60% of our members active on committees which contributed to the success of the year. We are always looking for new volunteers and encourage our members to get involved, that is a sure fire way of increasing your membership ROI! As I encouraged everyone at our Annual General Meeting in February, take a step outside your comfort zone this year and try something that you haven't done before. Join a committee, consider running for the Board, or simply find new ways to make your membership work for you. We can all grow together, you just have to take the leap! I look forward to seeing you at our fantastic events this year! ~Diane SITE Canada Calendar of Events President Diane Alexander receiving SITE Canada's Chapter Award for Education Excellence in Rome.
