Welcome to the new and improved HDISTLouis.com!

Before I get going on our great new website, I want to take a moment and explain what happened with our February meeting.  Since our speaker was coming from out of town, we  made the decision before the weather came to cancel so as not to potentially strand our speaker.  In the long run, this was a wise decision as I do not think anyone would have wanted to come out for a meeting.  With that said, we will soon be sending out an invitation for the rescheduling of this meeting, so check your email or the website soon.

In moving to this website, the chapter is taking the next step in our growth towards offering our paid members and attendees a more fluid experience.  These improvements include:

  • Unlike our previous site, we now have the capability to create our meetings and send invitations from our website.  While this may not sound like much, it gives us the capability to give members the chance to view presentations, pictures and information about our previous meetings, speakers, etc.  This is a major advantage for everyone.
  • Everything can now be on one site.  In the past we had to have discussions on LinkedIn, pictures on Facebook and the website and our events on Constant Contact.  It was very difficult for the group, none the less one person to attempt to manage all of that.  With this page, we can centralize everything and allow our members and attendees to participate. 
  • We now have the ability to allow members to post positions on our website for everyone to see.  This is just another free way to get exposure to your company and any positions you have open.
  • We now have a blog.  Sure everyone has a blog but the point is, we have the capability to easily share information to our members.  With our blog, we plan to have subject matter experts guest blog on a variety of topics relevant to you.  This will also be a great way to keep up to date with what is going on with help desk and service desk in theSt. Louis area.

 

This page is still new, so like a lot of new things, we are still working out the kinks.  With that, you may not receive an email or miss an update while we are tweaking things.  Over the next few months, we ask that everyone stop by the page and check for any updates.

As always, if you have some ideas on ways we can improve, if you want to guest blog, or just want to help out, please feel free to email me.

Thank you for your time and support.
