Helen Dao, new Chapter President, and President, DAO Management Consulting, Inc., started her two year term of office in June with the goal of setting high standards for Board Member performance by re-engineering Board tasks and goal setting. Her strategic focus included energizing the membership, reaching out to other professional organizations and prospective members, developing a sustainable and fiscally responsible organization.

A day-long Board Planning retreat was held in July 2010 to develop action plans for the Chapter.

Because NJ members are spread over such a wide area, the Board selected two permanent meeting sites in member-concentrated areas: for Northern Jersey, Fairleigh Dickenson University in Madison, and for Central Jersey, Princeton.

In addition, IMCNJ will collaborate with the Turnaround Management Association and the National Speakers Association to develop joint meetings and offer members more options for program content and meeting location.

The Program Committee, chaired by Eileen Sinett, President, CCS, added two seasoned consultants, Richard Nathan, President, Tailored Technologies LLC, and Patrick Lefler, Principal, The Spruance Group, to help develop programs and venues for the coming year. The Marketing Committee, chaired by Michele Joseph, President Klick Consultants, added a volunteer, Greg McMahon, to assist in preparing marketing materials.

The Membership Chair, Don McDermott, President, McDermott Associates, completed an analysis of member skill sets and geographic location as an aid to developing programs and meeting sites and identifying potential volunteers. The Treasurer, Michael Keats, President, Keats Consulting, took on the additional role of Webmaster and integrated Chapter and National databases and streamline meeting announcements and registrations.
