1 Sponsored by Bentley Systems Preactive MC 2 Mid Continent MicroStation Community Adjective take-charge, energetic, driven, bold, dynamic August Overland Park Convention Center Overland Park, KS Serving the Greater Kansas City area: Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska and Iowa and beyond The 2011 MCMC Conference finds us in an age of unprecedented, rapidly accelerating change. It s too late for proactive: we need to become preactive. The dictionary defines proactive as being take-charge, energetic, driven, bold, dynamic. We all know the drill. Don t wait, do something NOW take action! But, things are changing so fast that it is easy to be doing something that doesn t need to be done. How do we know the action to take is the right action? Being proactive is all about solving today s problems before they grow worse. This is no longer good enough. We need to solve tomorrow s problems the ones that are predictable and solve them BEFORE they happen. To be preactive is to anticipate the future events and take positive action to meet those needs. Stop thinking of change as disruptive. Shift from proactive to preactive, from reaction to anticipation. Rather than live in constant crisis management, take initiative. Become an opportunity manager. If you become preactive, you are in opportunity mode and you are looking at problems before they occur. Instead of reacting to change from the outside in, you can create change from the inside out. Purposeful. Constructive. Inside-out change that directs your future. So take the next few days and immerse yourself in the sessions and workshops at the conference. Find the solutions to the problems that you are in a unique position to see coming in the near future. Then go back and put these solutions into action. Be preactive! August 2011 Call to Arms for involvement We always need new members like yourself to help plan the conference, present or host meetings beyond the annual conference. The current leadership and committee members have donated much of their time and we would like you, the conference attendee, to get involved. While there is real effort involved, participation is rewarding and can be a huge step in your personal and career development. Please, find a Committee Member and ask them what you can do to help! Thanks to you! Thank you for attending and have a great conference! Kirk Reh Kirk Reh - Chairperson, MC 2...and the whole committee
