From the Executive’s Desk

I am pleased to report that we had one of our most successful Education Seminars (May 18-19, 2007) to date! Our Seminar was well attended and from the results of the surveys, it was well received by the participants. We are always anxious to make constant improvements to our Seminar experiences and we will be reviewing all suggestions carefully and adjusting our Seminar formats to provide the best experience for our participants. Two things you will easily see as adjustments recently made by the MTA: Lastly, we are working hard “behind the scenes” on seeing what we can do to expand member knowledge concerning the current job market environment. We have randomly  conducted some surveys (selectively so as not to overload members with e-mail), explored possibilities for adjustments and will be executing some activities in this area within the next quarter.

Technology Update

Right now my brain feels a little like it is made of mayonnaise. With Shelley Lebeck retiring, Marie moving into her role, Tom MacMahon’s position being eliminated (they have given their full cooperation to this effort) and two new people joining us soon, (one of them starts Tuesday) your MTA staff has been giving the full court press to our technology changeover.  The new technology platform will make it possible to serve the membership better and to know the history of member activity completely. With 149 pages of standard reports and the ability to track every contact from the membership and from prospects, this new tool will provide far more opportunities to the membership and facilitate MTA future growth on a world-wide basis. It will make the MTA a more virtual organization than we ever thought possible. However, no transition is ever as simple or straight forward as one would like it to be. Everything happens at once. With staff changes happening, it makes sense for current staff to have input for the history and for new staff to be trained on the new tool. I’m pleased to report that as of yesterday our input to Avectra to the initial data conversion is now complete. Next week we start looking at test data on the new MTA live platform. We are still shooting for a “go-live” date this fall. As we move toward that date, we will be asking everyone to validate your data on the website. Please stay tuned. We will provide more details of new features and benefits as they become available. Thank you, John R.
