Presidential Thoughts: Flourish

On behalf of the Board of Directors, welcome to the SMPS Nashville 2017-2018 program year!

I have been an SMPS member and volunteer for nearly five years. Through the SMPS organization, I have gained personal and professional confidence, while expanding my industry and marketing knowledge, widening my network of peers, and making some amazing friends along the way. I am incredibly honored to be serving as your chapter President and to guide an organization that has contributed so much to my own growth.

Our members and supporters are the foundation of our organization. As we look back and celebrate all of our past successes, we think about those who have paved the way and played a role in our chapter accomplishments. At the same time, we must acknowledge those who will propel us forward to future success – our members!

And speaking of success, our 2017-2018 program is dedicated to the theme: Flourish!

We’re committed to helping our members and supporters flourish in their careers and within the chapter. We will be:

  1. Providing innovative education to help you continue to grow in your careers
  2. Offering opportunities to hear from industry experts and officials
  3. Facilitating connections that will result in a strong network of peers and long-lasting, meaningful relationships.

The members of our new Board worked hard over the summer to plan a truly exceptional program year for you, one full of educational, professional development, and networking opportunities. You can look forward to a variety of events that target diverse career tracks, from entry-level to senior-level marketers. Here are just a few things we have planned for you in the months to come:

Stay tuned for upcoming event announcements and opportunities to flourish in your own career and within SMPS! It is my honor to be serving as your President and I look forward to all we can accomplish together in the year ahead. I hope to see you at an upcoming event and cheers to another great year!
