SCP President's Message

 Hello from Cincinnati!

I am still basking in the glow of last month’s Consulting Psychology Conference in Seattle.  For those of you able to attend, you know exactly what I mean. Not only did we have a terrific keynote speakers (Bob Eichinger, Alec Levensen, Jennifer Deal, Laurence Jackson), but we also had wonderful workshops and concurrent sessions on topics ranging from executive coaching to talent management, and from leadership challenges to organizational healing. And of course the opportunity to network, make new connections, and enjoy time with old friends and colleagues is priceless. If you did attend, hope you enjoyed the conference as much as I did.  If you were not able to attend, please consider attending the SCP conference in 2018. It’s in Savannah, which is a very exciting venue, and has the intriguing theme of Defying Gravity!

Since this is my first message as President, I want to take a little time to discuss my priorities for this next year. The member experience is at the center of my priorities. SCP exists to serve its members. The first step then is to increase awareness of SCP to draw in members. Our membership committee has set a goal of increasing membership by 5%. Thanks to Jennifer McDonald and Michelle Downey. The second step is to engage our members. We can do this in many ways. First is to update our website so that it is easily accessible and useful. Our second initiative to increase member engagement is to successfully run our first-ever leadership development initiative. The initial session has already been held and was a huge success. Kudos to Melanie Kinser and Carolyn Humphrey.

The second level of my priorities is the focus on development of outstanding consulting skills. The goal for this coming year is to continue our high-quality training offerings and deliver an outstanding conference in 2018. We are well on our way with Melanie and Scott Serviss overseeing our training offerings and Cristina Filippo and Layla Bokhari as 2018 conference chairs.

The third and final level of my priorities is for SCP to be a strong voice in the community. SCP has so much to offer the broader community. We already have an excellent journal; this year we will have two special issues and we want to leverage that important work. We will work to improve our relationship with APA and our influence there, as well as continuing our partnerships (e.g., SIOP, International Society of Coaching Psychology, etc.). Thanks to our journal editor Rob Kaiser and Ken Nowack, as well as our APA Council representatives Randy White and Amy Owens.

I am very much looking forward to my year as president.  If you have any thoughts, ideas, or comments you would like to share with me, don’t hesitate to reach out to me at dramsel@fioptics.com. We have several committees which would be happy to include new members; it’s a great way to get involved. Together let’s make 2018 a great year!

Thank you,

Dee Ramsel, PhD, MBA
President, SCP
