Happy New Year from MEA
New MEA website is live! Make sure to check out our new website which can still be found at meainfo.org. Here are some of the exciting changes you will see:
New Training Calendar
We have totally revamped our training calendar. You can now sort classes by Series, by Class, Location and Delivery method (webinar or Cyber workshop) , and Accreditation. You can now also register and pay online.
Members Only Features
Exclusive to Members, you can now access CCH HRAnswersNow, a full online HR resource. Members can also access MEA’s proprietary and interactive HR Toolkit with best practices, forms and checklists, as well as an Employee Handbook policy roadmap and other valuable tools. In addition, Members have access to archived Newsletters and Alerts.
We are proud of the great companies we count among our Members. We want to raise the visibility and strengthen the sense of community among our Members. Under Member Spotlight, you will find information about three Members who are doing their part to make a positive impact on our world: CTN Solutions, New Age Industries and Tozour Energy Systems. This is just the beginning! Let me know of any activities your company or employees are doing to make a difference – we want to grow the Spotlight! Also, be sure to check out our Sponsor Members, companies that are supporting the efforts of MEA to serve its Members.
New Online Computer Workshops
After the tremendous response to the Excel Pivot Table Workshops, and feedback from a Member survey that many of you and your employees would be interested in skills workshops instead of all day training, we will be adding 80 minute computer skills cyber workshops, available live or via webinar, beginning in February. These fast-paced workshops will focus on productivity skills for both 2007 and 2010 versions of Microsoft products. Online workshops will be available for online registration in the middle of January. Don’t forget that we are offering many workshops and briefings by webinar. Many Members are also having great success with Cyber-Workshop training.
Credit toward Workshops and Member Briefings
Beginning January 1, Members are entitled to a 10% credit based on their membership fee which can be used towards public workshops (including webinars and cyber workshops) and Member Briefings. Now is the perfect time to sign up for these events and find out what over 1,000 employees found out last year – that MEA offers you great training and development programs.
