Welcome to the ISPI Bay Area/Boise State Chapter

It is time for the March PIJ article brainstorm! Think for a moment about a person you’ve met, a presentation you’ve seen, something that you’ve read, or an HPT idea you’ve heard about that would make a great article for PIJ. Remember, that author could also be you. Then, join your fellow ISPI leaders and send me an article idea or author referral, with name and email (if available) of who I should contact. Act now. Or, forward this email to that brilliant person, who can contact me directly at peter@honebein.com.

Peter C. Honebein, Ph.D.  Editor-in-Chief, Performance Improvement

ISPI Bay Area / Boise State (BABS) Chapter is a chapter of the International Society for Performance Improvement (ISPI)

What is it that you want from a professional organization? Would you like to:

  • Build enriching, rewarding relationships?
  • Develop your leadership skills?
  • Partner with professional peers?
  • Keep up-to-date on proven practices and industry trends?
Then you are looking for ISPI Bay Area/Boise State (ISPI BABS) chapter!

ISPI BABS is a young and rapidly expanding professional association. The Boise State Organizational Performance and Workplace Learning (OPWL) department and student body has joined forces with what was the ISPI Bay Area chapter in Northern California to form a new, organizational chapter that operates virtually. It is called the ISPI Bay Area/Boise State (BABS) chapter. Although the group has strong roots in Northern California and the Boise OPWL community, we welcome new members in Northern California and other educational institutions.

We follow and support the ISPI standards and RSVP Plus:

Standard 1: Focus on results, while remaining impartial.
Standard 2: Take a systemic view, combined with our expert consulting and communication skills.
Standard 3: Add value to the organization by facilitating better decision making.
Standard 4: Establish partnerships.

Plus: Remain solution neutral.

Opportunities for professional networking and learning

One of the most important steps toward advancing careers in the exciting field of human performance improvement is to join a professional association. Currently, we have members from all over North America. Here are some great reasons for joining the ISPI BABS Chapter.


ISPI organizes both international and national annual conferences. Thanks to technology, the ISPI Bay Area/Boise State Chapter gives you an opportunity to connect more frequently with members and other professionals who share your interest. We offer webinars most months, and occasional face-to-face events. These are opportunities for you to mix and mingle with others in your field in both professional and relaxing settings.

Personal & Professional Growth

If your career aspirations include the desire to present your work, publish, and/or keep up-to-date on proven practices or industry trends and how to manage them, the ISPI Bay Area/Boise State Chapter can help you find opportunities.


Mentoring is the cornerstone of many professional organizations, and is a valuable part of ISPI as a whole, and of our chapter. Both emerging professionals and more experienced practitioners can find value in mentoring and being mentored. A number of the seasoned professionals in our chapter are well known in the performance improvement field and generously lend their expertise.

Career Development

Networking builds relationships with people who hire, even though they may not be hiring at the moment, and with people who may be able to point you to job listings that other avenues may not. In addition, active participation in a professional organization like this chapter can be an impressive entry on your résumé.

Volunteer Opportunities

We have lots of opportunities for members who want to be involved and help shape it. What is it that you want from a professional organization? Bring your voice to the mix, and help us build something that meets the needs of our community. Volunteers help in the following types of activities:

  • Programs
  • Technology
  • Membership
  • Marketing and Communications
  • Finance
