Share Your Knowledge in a Business Support Program

Nov 27, 2018

Our membership is full of subject matter experts ready to share their valuable knowledge with other businesses through our Business Support Programs. These programs exist to develop businesses, develop employees as leaders and foster professional growth.

We’re compiling the 2019 Business Support Program schedule now, and we want you on it. From member feedback, we’ve gleaned that the highest demanded programs fall within these five topics: Leadership Development, Marketing & Advertising, Finance, Sales, and Human Resources & Workforce Development. If you or a colleague has expertise in any of those areas, consider applying to become a Business Support Program presenter.

We know business professionals have busy schedules, often resulting in a struggle to fit professional development in during business hours. To provide predictability for both program presenters and attendees, in 2019 we will host one Business Support Program a month, on the third Thursday of each month from 8 – 9:15 a.m. at our office (501 First St. SE, Cedar Rapids).

Presenter applications are open now on our website. Applicants are asked to provide a presentation topic and objective, key takeaways for attendees, how the presentation will support businesses’ growth, and the individual’s qualifications to speak on the topic. Priority is given to applications received by Thursday, December 20, so don’t wait to apply. Look for the 2019 Business Support Program schedule in early January!
