President’s Letter: August 2018

by: Terry Dougherty, CMP, 2018 PCMA Southeast President

It is hard to believe that summer is almost over, a new school year has begun, and the holidays are right around the corner! Our wonderful committees and dedicated volunteers have been busy putting together experiential programs and working hard to keep our members engaged. We have some great programs and networking opportunities coming up over the next 4 months that you are not going to want to miss.

In September alone, we have two great events, SO MARK YOUR CALENDARS!! Looking for a fun way to show off-your culinary talents or just enjoy some great food? Then you can’t miss our Fall Social Event, on September 6th at Team Building with Taste. Than on September 26th, at the Island Grove Winery in Kissimmee, FL, Michael Dominguez, CHSE will present on the State of the Industry. Not local to Florida, then register and watch the presentation through our Live Streaming. Local attendees will have the opportunity to take part in the CSR activity, as we partner with Give Kids the World Village.

Looking for other ways to be involved with the Chapter? I encourage you to consider giving back to our Chapter by volunteering. We are always in need of members willing to give of their time and talents to keep our Chapter moving forward.

Are you looking for a great way to give back to our industry, develop strong working relationships and advance your career? The PCMA Southeast Chapter is seeking members who are interested in serving on our 2019 Board of Directors. Our Board is fun group of leaders that are dedicated to making a difference in our industry and our Chapter. The call for nominations has been emailed to our membership or you can click this link to submit an application.

I hope you will take advantage of these great opportunities. The best way to get the most out of your membership is to keep engaged with your Chapter.

I look forward to seeing you on September 6th!
