Professional Membership Tip: Member Meetups
Online monthly meetups give members a chance to connect
Informal, online monthly meetups give members a chance to connect with peers, explore hot topics and enjoy small-group discussions.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The membership committee of the Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine wanted to find a way to help members connect who were missing in-person networking at SIIM events. Their solution: Member Meetups. The free, informal, 45-minute sessions are held monthly on Zoom with about 35 participants.
Members of the planning group choose the topics for the online meetings and find a lead moderator, as well as moderators for breakout sessions. On the back end, SIIM assists by providing a template with the title of the Meetup, bullet points about the topic and other relevant information that Meetup organizers can use when they are soliciting moderators.
