In the Resources section, there are many links to books, Websites, classes, and more that will help you be more productive, find answers to your questions, and much more.


Improve your effectiveness by attending monthly community meetings and several special events at special member pricing. We promise an exciting learning experience, delivered by experts in the field. Topics range from the basics of performance-based analysis and instructional design to the latest technologies and industry trends. Expand your skills at two of our most popular events; Cracker-barrel and Chicago eLearning Technology Showcase, both led by the field’s top practitioners. ISPI also offers many events. Meet practitioners from around the globe at ISPI’s annual Performance Conference, Fall Instructional Systems Design Conference, and the HPT Institute Conference.

Networking and Professional Development

Because our meetings are located in communities around this large metro area, we offer intimate opportunities for networking and professional development. When you participate in Chicago ISPI, you are connected to a warm and responsive network of Chicago Human Performance colleagues. Chicago ISPI offers opportunities at the community and organization level so you can develop additional skills, develop strong bonds, and gain the experience that may help you to earn your CPT designation. Our community meetings and our online forums help you advance your career as you can obtain sound advice from other professionals and  Performance Improvement specialists.

Academic Outreach

We are building an outreach program to local colleges and universities. If you are a professor or dean at a local college with courses or a program in one of our areas of focus, please contact us to discuss how we can benefit you, your students, and your institution. See our special faculty and student pricing on our Membership Application page.
