SITE Chicago President, Colleen Brzozowski submitted a question during a webinar organised by a recruiting company, Horizon Hospitality, last week and in answer was told unequivocally to invest in association membership, even if she had to do so with her own money. However, we’re a few initiatives that make membership of SITE a bit easier than that.
This webinar from recruitment company Horizon Hospitality is full of great content for anyone seeking employment at this time. You’ll also hear the answer that Colleen was given when she asked whether she should pay her own SITE membership if her employer wasn’t willing to do so. It’s a resounding YES, by the way.
We’ve made it a bit easier overall with (a) The Moira Fund and (b) Member-Get-A-Member. Many members, sponsors and friends have approached us about donating to the Moira Fund. It has now been taken under the aegis of SITE Foundation which means it’s fully tax-deductible as a charitable donation. Get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to discuss a donation to this wonderful initiative.
We do it every year at IMEX and this year is no exception. The Member-Get-A-Member initiative will be open all next week from Monday 11th through Friday 15th of May during PlanetIMEX. More information here.
