In Case You Missed It: July Board Meeting Recap
Thursday, August 31, 2017
On Thursday, July 6, 2017, APEX hosted the Board of Directors and investor-member meeting at the recently remodeled Holiday Inn & Suites Lyric Conference Center. The interactive meeting focused on talent recruitment and human resources – one of the key critical business areas identified by APEX membership to focus on in 2017.
Several human resources professionals led investor-members in small group discussions and provided advice based on their specific experiences:
- Andrea Chartier with the College of St. Scholastica
- Mary Ferguson with Essentia Health
- Arik Forsman with Minnesota Power
- Jeanne Kucera with maurices
- Joe Warner with Aimclear
APEX has been an advocate of hiring and promoting interns within the organization for nearly 10 years. For the past four years, APEX has invited investor-members to bring their interns to the July Board meeting. At this meeting, the seven interns actively participated in roundtable discussions regarding talent recruitment and retention.
Brian Hanson also provided an update on the APEX Deal Sheet and Dashboard as well as a brief summary of our recent Site Selector FAM Tour.
