The Need to be Decisively Indecisive: Understanding Behavioral Changes for the Meetings & Event Industry was held on Wednesday, May 18, 2022, 4:00 - 5:00 pm ET.  A recording of this webinar and its supporting documents is available through NOA Member Connect

Description: The Pandemic forced all of us to experience so many learnings, twists, and forks in the road.  As we start to emerge into a clearer future, there has never been a greater need for you to be Decisively Indecisive.

“Affective Forecasting”, the psychological study of how one feels into the future is front and center after 2020.  The experience of 2020 has absolutely been unexpected, uncertain, and devastating in many ways.  We now face a world, country, economy, and industry traveling a road much less traveled as we begin to restart our global commerce engine and hospitality industry.

What will be the long-term changes in our industry?  What were the silver linings to come out of this challenging time?  It is important to know where to look and more importantly to not overthink what may or may not be structural in change.

This session will help identify the questions we should be asking as we know the next 18 months will set the course on where end up with permanent behavioral changes to the Meetings & Events Industry.

Learning Objectives:

  • Update on the current situation regarding the Global state of COVID19 and Vaccine distribution
  • Meeting environment expected changes for the remainder of 2022
  • The current state of the economy and expectations for 2022 and 2023
  • A review of travel experience changes and expectations
  • The need to engage – still ever present
  • Adoption of technology and process in a “Fast Forward” society

Sustain and Retain: Strategies to Address the Global Nursing Shortage was held on Wednesday, April 27, 2022, 4:00 - 5:00 PM ET. 
A recording of this webinar and its supporting documents is available through NOA Member Connect.
Description: The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed existing workforce shortages and vulnerabilities in health systems worldwide. Before March 2020, countries around the world were already amid worsening nursing and healthcare worker shortages due to aging populations, faculty shortages, and other issues. COVID-19 only exacerbated this reality. Now, retirement, burnout, and educational shortages have further contributed to increased demands for nurses worldwide. Simultaneously, a global migration tsunami is looming as the world grapples with increased economic and political crises, conflicts, and unchecked climate change. International migration flows are higher than ever and are only projected to increase. Without a global, long-term, and strategic plan of action, this worsening workforce crisis will cripple already fragile health systems and impede advancement toward global universal health coverage initiatives by the United Nations and World Health Organization.

In this context, a new research was released by the International Centre on Nurse Migration (ICNM) highlights the vulnerable state of the global nursing workforce in light of the pandemic and provides a blueprint for what needs to be accomplished at the national and international level to address this crisis. ICNM, a partnership between CGFNS International, Inc. (CGFNS) and the International Council of Nurses (ICN), serves as a comprehensive knowledge resource that emphasizes the development, promotion, and dissemination of research, policy, and information on global nurse migration and human resources in nursing.

The pandemic has proven the contributions and necessity of a strong, unified, and healthy nursing workforce worldwide. As we’ve witnessed during the pandemic, maintaining and improving nurse retention in the United States and around the world require special consideration. This webinar will highlight the recent ICNM publication and lay out key data and action items for maintaining a sustainable global nursing workforce beyond COVID-19.

Speaker: Dr. Franklin A. Shaffer is the President and Chief Executive Officer of CGFNS International, Inc., an internationally recognized authority on credentials evaluation and verification pertaining to the education, registration, and licensure of nurses and healthcare professionals worldwide. Dr. Shaffer earned his doctorate in nursing administration and education at Columbia University and has 50 years of progressive and varied nursing experience which includes administration, education, clinical practice, and research. He is a frequent speaker and consultant at meetings and conferences around the world and is an NGO representative at the United Nations (UN), World Health Organization (WHO), and International Council of Nurses (ICN). Dr. Shaffer serves as the Secretariat of the International Centre on Nurse Migration (ICNM), a strategic partnership between ICN and CGFNS International. ICNM occupies a key role in establishing effective global and national migration policy and practice that facilitates safe, quality, and accessible patient care and positive practice environments for nurse migrants. He is the former Deputy Director of the National League for Nursing, the accreditation organization for nursing education. Dr. Shaffer made the business case for The Joint Commission (TJC) to develop a certification for the healthcare staffing industry, an initiative that has since grown to include over 400 healthcare staffing firms. Throughout his 61 years in nursing, Dr. Shaffer has authored eight books and over 200 publications. He also serves on several leading professional journals and editorial boards and most recently was selected as Chair of the International Advisory Board of the American Journal of Nursing. Recently, he was appointed Visiting Scholar at Tor Vergata University in Rome, Italy and the University of Our Lady of Good Counsel in Tirana, Albania, and Adjunct Faculty at the University of Minnesota School of Nursing, the M.
