James McLuckie, formerly of EdenTree and now Senior Instructional Design Manager at Good Practice and LPI Fellow for 12 years tells us why membership matters to him.
A number of people within my network were affiliated with the LPI in some way, particularly people that I enjoyed interacting with and from whom I was learning a lot from. The LPI really understands the link between learning and performance and this is not something that all organisations understand. That understanding manifests itself through the events that the LPI facilitates and the many and varied benefits that they provide for members. For those reasons I really wanted to become a member and endorse what they stand for and I would encourage any serious L&D professional to become a member.
LPI membership gives validation to my skills as a Learning Provider and a reference point for me to grow my skills through the knowledge and experience of the Institute and its members. It also gives customers confidence in my abilities as LPI is widely recognised for the high standards required to achieve membership.
Membership of the LPI helped keep my thinking fresh through access to a wide network of L&D professionals across a variety of sectors and excellent resources about new advances in learning and development. The chance to connect with peers and make use of LPI innovations like the Capability Map , CLO Connect and the LPN help ensure my team are equipped to face the future.
For me joining the Institute was a no-brainer. A body dedicated to my chosen career path, a way for me to prove to others (especially employers) my commitment to that career and the professionalism that I believe in. Almost 15 years later, and even with a name change, the LPI still helps me to show the same ideals, professionalism and commitment. My favourite event throughout the year has to be Learning Live - I get the opportunity to reconnect with friends and colleagues within the learning and development industry and gain some new ideas/insights from thought-leaders.
Gaining professional membership with the LPI is a significant milestone. It's an acknowledgement of the diverse and complex role adopted by learning and development professionals
