Some people in an organization are standouts. It’s just how a group of people sort themselves. Some go beyond just membership and actively work in the organization with passion. We should recognize those people, shouldn’t we? This is one of the items that the Governance Committee reported on during the most recently quarterly meeting. Together with the Marketing Committee they are coming up with a badging program.
NSITSP wants to recognize those organize meet-ups, recruit new members, companies and vendors, staff our table at events and more.
What do you do with a badge?
- Show it on your NSITSP public profile
- Stick it on your laptop
- Include it in your LinkedIn profile
- Include it on your website
- Wear it on your name tag
Badges are both silly and important. I put my name tag adornment, that you get in your NSITSP welcome kit and not technically a badge but bear with me, on my name tag at the ChannelPartners conference and it was noticed. Several people asked me about it and about the NSITSP. That’s what we want from a badge or a name tag adornment, a conversation starter. These things work to build reputation and awareness, while at the same time providing you with the knowledge that we really, really appreciate you.
