A Word From Our President

August 2017

Dear Members,

Susan Kennedy, PMP

July 13 Dinner Meeting

The July dinner attendees were in for a real surprise last month. At the end of the evening the dinner speaker, Tony Johnson, gave the entire audience a gift of free attendance to an Agile course he's developing. Tony took a photo of the audience and collected business cards of everyone who wanted to take advantage of the multi-PDU opportunity. 

Life skills coach, Sarah McKinzie, facilitated the free pre-dinner warm-up session. In the Career Resources room, people looking for jobs connected with recruiters. Special thanks to Mickey McLean with TEKsystems and Johnny Stromp with Signature Consultants for participating in the July career networking.

Thank you again to TEKsystems, our July dinner meeting sponsor. TEK systems raffled off multiple prizes including several branded bags and a nice Amazon gift card. Crestcom gave away 3 Leadership courses. Doulas Training, our Education sponsor, also gave away a free course.

If you haven't been out to a dinner meeting lately, come check it out. Generous sponsors, active recruiters, and awesome volunteers - there are plenty of opportunities to learn, share and network. Pre-register now.

"Expect Leadership!," by Keith Martino, is an interactive and lively session on leadership topics. Keith has been a keynote speaker at business development conferences, consults on leadership and sales development, and is the author of several books. Keith will provide a fun and simple three step process for inspiring and encouraging others.

Franklin-Photography will offer Professional Portraits before dinner. We'll have the Career Resources room available for networking before dinner, or check out the free pre-dinner warm-up with the Leadership Forums group.
