Community Call

What is the Community Call?

A web-hosted virtual meeting with audio, video and chat capabilities.  While the topics will vary, each call will focus on one specific element of running a chapter.  It will feature fellow chapter volunteers and speaker’s familiar with the topic and a live question and answer period.  The Community Call will be recorded and made available to all chapter volunteers.  Leaders who would like to further discuss this topic will be encouraged to use the to-be-announced LinkedIn platform to connect with other leaders. 

Upcoming topics:

Coming Soon!

  • Parliamentary procedure
  • Collaborating with other organizations
  • Engaging chapter members
  • Leadership development: how does your chapter develop leaders?

As we start the new fiscal year, we are planning many new sessions for our chapter leaders to enjoy.  Do you feel your chapter excels at any of the above topics?  Help us make these sessions great by participating and volunteering to share your experiences.  Email chapters@armaintl.org if you would like to assist. 

Recorded Topics:

New Member Onboarding

We know that the first year of membership is critical to making a decision to renew membership. Listen as our Austin chapter shares the practices they use as new members join their chapter, and how they help bring them into the fold.  Also ARMA International’s Senior Manager of Membership shares some words of wisdom on membership practices. 


Working with Business Partners

Join the Denver chapter to learn about how fellow chapters work their business partners in their community.  Learn how they build these relationships and the benefits for the chapter and its members.
