Leveraging ISSP's Professional Development Offerings in 2019
Many organizations encourage employees to reassess their career goals in Q4 and to set new ones for the upcoming year. So if / when the topic comes up at work this fall, don’t forget that we're committed to helping you continue to grow with our Credentials, Courses, Webinars, Chapters/RLNs, etc.
Upcoming Course: Sustainability Management Systems (SMS)
Management systems are the key to ongoing progress and embedding best practices. An SMS allows for systematic internal review, monitoring and corrective actions for continual improvement. ISSP's October course will walk you through the creation of such a system to fit your needs.
You don't need a third-party certified ISO 14001 management system to benefit from the Plan-Do-Check-Act framework. You will learn what level of sophistication works best for you and what elements to add as your system matures. You will complete the course having learned practical methods to solidify and advance sustainability efforts by applying proven management system tools, practices and competencies. Register now!
Want to Join ISSP's Member Activity in Your Area?
As sustainability professionals, we all understand the value of building community and having a diverse range of opportunities to learn from and share with one another. A year ago, we kicked off our Regional Learning Network (RLN) virtual program to complement our Local Chapters to do just that and it appears to be working. We've been able to successfully launch 17 local and regional groups with your help. And just this past quarter, we increased the number of groups by 15%, with several more in planning stages.
