Does Social Media Make Your Smarter?

A study published by global think tank, the Human Capital Institute (HCI), revealed that over half of all organizations are experimenting with communities of practice for business purposes, along with other popular applications such as social networks (49%), blogs and/or wikis (39%).

Centennial Membership Retreat This Week Closes Out Great Year!

Since January, MSCPA members have been celebrating the 100th year anniversary of the society. It's been a great year...with an enhanced convention, chapter celebrations, the centennial ASSET in Jully, and the centennial website.

This week brings the year of celebration to a close with the Centennial Membership Retreat in Key West, Florida. The group of almost 70 will gather to commemorate our history and celebrate our future as a profession!

If you haven't yet had a chance to review the official centennial website, please take a few minutes to read through it.

And happy birthday MSCPA!
