ILMA Compoundings August 2016 - 10

BOARD BRIEF Engage with ILMA Lon Fanning W hen we think of engaging with ILMA, we tend to think about joining a committee or making the annual trip to Washington, D.C., but one of the most rewarding and beneficial ways to engage with ILMA is to connect with fellow members. Many of us have been in this industry for a long time. We have a core group of friends and peers, and we tend to group together with those we know, but I'd like to challenge every ILMA member to engage with those who are new to the organization. We always benefit from building relationships. Not only can we help others, they can help us. Networking is one of the primary ways we discover new contacts and increase our knowledge. We are all good at different things and there is always value in getting fresh ideas. One of the best ways to get a fresh perspective is to connect with new members and first-time attendees at one of our major industry events. Even the most experienced ILMA member should plan to attend the Annual Meeting welcome reception to connect and see the industry in a new light. (This year's Annual Meeting welcome reception is on Saturday, October 15, 6:00 pm.) Reaching out to new members will boost their comfort level and increase their overall involvement in ILMA, which benefits all of us. Oftentimes, those new to ILMA and ILMA meetings are unsure of where to go and what to do when attending a meeting for the first time. Let's make it a goal to show them the ropes and be more inclusive. For the newer members, a great way to connect with others in the industry is to attend the committee meetings. Members meet in smaller groups, and you have an opportunity to talk and connect before the meeting starts. The SHERA and Metalworking Fluids committee meetings are both well attended and two of the best places to start. Networking opportunities are one of the most common reasons people attend a conference or convention, but we don't always take advantage of the opportunities to get to know those around us. One of the biggest mistakes we can make during a conference is sticking with the people we already know and closing off our conversations. If we only stick together, we rob ourselves of the opportunity to grow our network and, as a result, our knowledge. Break times, lunch sessions and even down time in the evenings are potential networking opportunities if we take advantage of them. Go to each meeting with three or four questions in mind that can get others talking about themselves so you can uncover what you have in common. We can all learn from each other, and today's technology gives us more ways to connect than ever before. Just check out the ILMA meetings app! And we don't necessarily have to wait for face-to-face meetings anymore. ILMA's responsive website features a number of forums where we can share Vol. 66 No. 8 * 10 * August 2016 Compoundings
