分会领导委员会聚焦…采访 T3 Expo 东北地区销售副总裁 Tom Malek (CEM)

Tom Malek, CEM, is Vice President of Sales – Northeast for T3 Expo and a member of IAEE’s Chapter Leaders Council. Tom has been an IAEE member for 9 years. He recently shared with IAEE his thoughts on collaborating with his fellow Chapter Board members, and the importance of developing chapter leadership initiatives.

您是如何参与分会的领导工作的?

I volunteered for the Holiday Party Committee.

您目前在哪些分会委员会任职或曾经在哪些分会委员会任职?

Currently, I chair of the best chapter, the NY Chapter of IAEE. As the current Chairperson, my focus is on the cooperation of our fantastic Board is to disrupt our standard, and offer our members a better all-around disrupting experience. Disruptions center around updated technology, the chapter app, our website, and more robust and powerful education sessions. It’s an absolute pleasure working with my peers, and together we push our chapter to the next level. We certainly have our challenges, but we also have our laughs too. My two-year term concludes this October. I served as Vice Chair under the leadership of Phil Hobson in 2015-2016, and my responsibilities included overseeing our chapter committees. I served as Treasurer for four long, wonderful years from 2011-2014. Handling the finances, you quickly learn how the Chapter operates financially. Understanding the P&L, you quickly find ways to increase cash flow and cut costs to modernize the organization.

您从为分会做志愿工作中得到了什么?

I believe you get out of something what you put into it. I am passionate about our industry, and being a member of our chapter has certainly lent itself to both career and personal growth.

您如何培养未来的志愿者领袖?

As a Board, we implemented a Chair and Vice Chair for each committee where the Chair serves a two-year term and the Vice Chair moves into Chair. This format not only fosters our volunteer leaders, but also gives us stability and consistency within our committees. As our members serve on committees they quickly move in Board positions.

担任分会的领导职务后,您觉得最令人满意的是什么?

I didn’t step into my leadership role, my peers voted me in. By title I’m the Chairperson of our Board, but to me I’m just the guy in front.  As the guy in front, I lead through example: I do what I say I’m going to do and I treat others how I want to be treated.  What’s most satisfying to me is how our board members respond to my ideas and how supportive they are. They go above and beyond to ensure continued success for our chapter.

您最喜欢的章节活动是什么?

My favorite chapter activity is our annual NY/DC IAEE Atlantic City Golf & Spa Invitational.  This year is the 10th anniversary of our most popular social networking event. Our dates this year are 17-18 September.
