Magnet: Moving Forward in 2016

By: Stefan Fletcher 2016 promises some major developments for Magnet that will expand the programming, outreach, and services of our organization. Whether it be through our contributions to the Greater Madison community, or through the opportunities for professional and social engagement we provide our members, Magnet is focused on how we can best serve our members and our region.

A few weeks ago, members of the Magnet Board of Directors sat down for our semi-annual retreat. I sincerely appreciate the input of my colleagues on the Board. Their thoughts and ideas are part of why I am so excited for the future direction of Magnet. Here are some of our goals for the coming year:

 Provide more professional development workshops and sessions that enhance or add to the skill sets of Magnet members in their work environment.

 Re-emphasize community involvement programming as a central tenet of our organization and provide members a structured set of opportunities that will contribute to Madison continuing to be a fantastic place to live, learn, and work.

 Continue to diversify social events to appeal to the broad interests of Magnet members.

 Increase member interaction and communication through social media channels to ensure that members are informed on how to get the most out of their memberships.

If you have any other suggestions or thoughts on how we can fulfill our 2016 agenda, please contact me at director@madisonmagnet.org. I am grateful for any feedback you might have.

Get excited. 2016 holds great things in store for Magnet!
