It primarily focuses on youth in their 20s and 30s. Since its inception, the board has raised over $1 million to aid NorthShore Evanston Hospital’s Henrietta Johnson Louis Infant Special Care Unit (ISCU) and the Department of Pediatrics for vital patient care programs.
The board also offers programs to benefit the members, including building professional and social networks, developing new skills, and creating a lasting impact in the community. The board also set up a fund, the Associate Board Emergency Family Fund, to provide direct support for vulnerable and underserved families in the community. The fund is financed from proceeds of the annual benefit.
As a strategy consultant for Aon, PLC, Alexander (Alex) Mosnick has overseen multiple projects for several prominent clients. Outside of his work, Alex Mosnick enjoys traveling and has visited the country of Scotland.
Scottish weather is unpredictable, making it difficult to anticipate what you will need to pack for a trip. While your morning may start sunny and warm, by midday you could be battling strong wind and heavy rain.
The best way to prepare for Scotland’s unpredictable weather is to plan your wardrobe with layering in mind. With layers, you can add or remove clothing as needed.
Since days often turn wet in Scotland, pack a waterproof jacket with a hood for your top layer. A windproof umbrella is a good idea since the rain is often accompanied by winds too strong for a regular umbrella.
Water-resistant or quick-drying pants and an extra pair of socks will also help keep you comfortable and warm when bad weather strikes. You might also want to consider a waterproof backpack to store your layers so they will always be at hand when needed.
A strategic consultant based in Chicago, Alexander Mosnick helps businesses succeed through proven management practices. Areas of particular focus for Alexander Mosnick include time management and team collaboration.
One of the key elements of success in business is productivity in the workplace. A productive team gets the job done and well, delivering maximum value for clients and end users. Achieving this begins with limiting the number of tasks at hand so that individual team members are not distracted or overwhelmed.
It is better to focus on a broad project instead of constantly transitioning between different projects. Break down the project into specific tasks and assign to team members based on their skill sets and areas of knowledge. Set clear objectives from the beginning and review each milestone as the team progresses.
Keep in mind that coordinating team members on a shared project does not always mean inhabiting the same physical space. Take advantage of technology to streamline processes, create structure, and support real-time collaboration. Applications such as Google Docs and Slack allow individual members to work on their assignments and collaborate simultaneously with others instantly.
