NMAs Challenge for 2006... To provide a chapter experience that is of undeniable value to its members and provide the tools that assist employees and the parent organization in achieving mutual and respective goals.
NMA chapters... u u Build networks both internally and externally, in each company… and across all the business areas u u Provide opportunities to reinforce corporate culture
The NMA chapters... u u Increase communication between and among operating units u u Provide real opportunities to practice teamwork and reinforce teambuilding
And they... u u Build community support for the company through American Enterprise and youth & civic activities u u Support company training & development programs with additional cost- effective activities
NMA suggests that the chapters... u Should be creating their own niche for helping reduce stress brought about by ongoing change u u Must become change agents vehicle in order to help people survive and grow
We believe that the chapter... u Reinforces the concept of lifelong learning and gives additional choices for improving oneself u Allows people to voluntarily assume new responsibility for their own growth and development
Members are asked to... Attend meetings regularly Volunteer to serve on committees Make themselves increasingly visible Ask for a return on their investment Encourage and mentor other members of the team The opportunities are unlimited… one needs only to participate. --Charles Kettering NMA Founder

Opportunities to share their vision with key personnel on a regular basis Networking opportunities with a broad base of employees A chance to observe people (members and chapter leaders) in situations outside their normal workplace environment… and observe their unique skills and talents A place where people feel pride in their work… and the place where they work
And in return for that support... Employees feel increasingly valued and appreciated They see executives walking the talk Everyone feels part of the same team New employees are integrated into the organization and its culture much more quickly via NMA programs and activities
