Where did the Summer go? - Message from the President

Brenda Dempsey

Where did the summer go? Doesn’t seem possible but in just a few days the first day of fall will be here.

I’ve been looking at photos posted by friends and colleagues of their children headed off to first days of school with bright shining smiles and new (huge) backpacks. Their faces full of optimism for what a new school year will bring. Your chapter leaders have a similar feeling for a new event in September. Our first Bowling Outing and Networking event. The Painted Pin will be our location and lanes are sponsored by key industry partners – come out to join us for an evening of fun times with good friends in a wonderful new venue.   

In the coming months we’ll be awarding scholarships for Conveying Leaders, announcing the board slate for 2015, celebrating our chapter’s 20 year anniversary at our November education program, and giving back during PCMA’s Service in Sync Day. Don’t miss the opportunity to increase your involvement in our chapter activities.
