As part of our commitment to Call Centers Care, Midwest Chapter members are asked to bring donations for the Lydia House Basic Needs Drive. Lydia House is the charity that the ATA Midwest Chapter has supported for the past 2 years. Lydia House helps the homeless population in Omaha, which includes men, women, children and families. Items needed include socks, underwear and toilet paper.
The ATA Midwest Chapter board is made up of 11 call center industry executives from across the Midwest. The board is led by Michael Thompson, Chief Operating Officer of TPG Telemanagement. "In the Midwest Chapter, we have a vibrant group of companies and individuals that are deeply entrenched in call center service delivery. Our membership includes inbound call center operations and outbound call center operations. The chapter board has once again successfully put together an event that guarantees something for every call center leader (or aspiring leader) that seeks to improve their call center operation," stated Mr. Thompson. "Our events consistently attract 75 to 80 people at each event and we have drawn from attendees from seven states. We expect to attract a record number of attendees to this event because Sandra Steen is a very sought-after speaker," added Tom O’Conner, Midwest Chapter Kansas Director and CEO of OLC Global.
