Strategic Planning Goals: (Please highlight committee goals related to the advancement of SIOP’s Strategic Planning Goals)
o Continue to coordinate with the Executive Office to ensure that our members receive timely CE notification and that the CE objectives are in line with the APA and HRCI standards for the April conference.
o Continue to utilize survey feedback from our members (conference, workshops, LE) to ensure our CE offerings are aligned with our members’ needs.
2. Integrate (as related to #4):
o Work with the Executive Office to update our membership tracking information so that we can track both certification and licensure information.
o Update the conference submission process to partially automate how sessions can be registered for HRCI credit (working with HRCI, Executive Office, and Conference/Workshop Chairs)
o Ensure we maximize the HRCI partnership
3. Expand (as related to #3 above - increased support for SIOP members):
o Provide and produce one pilot online CE offering (Ethics is suggested topic, per Workshop/Conference chairs and CE Assessment data).
§ The Executive Office and Board have given a tentative green light on sponsoring the cost.
o Explore offering CE in partnerships with local I-O organizations.
