Your PCMA SE Board is ready for 2015!

Jennifer Hicks, CMP, CASE
The 2015 PCMA SE Board of Directors met November 13-15, 2014 at the Augusta Marriott in Augusta, GA. Thank you to our hosts Carol Hall with the Augusta Marriott Hotel and Suites and Jamie Boatwright with the Augusta Convention & Visitors Bureau for providing excellent accommodations, food, meeting space, AV and a little fun so that the Board could focus on what lies ahead for 2015.
Of course the year kicks off with the Southeast Chapter Reception on Sunday, January 11th, during Convening Leaders in Chicago. We hope to see you all there and look forward to continuing the tradition of holding the Silent Auction at the reception, though this year with the added technology of online bidding!

Your 2015 quarterly luncheons are set for February 4th, May 6th, August 5th and November 4th, the last of which will again be our Annual Meeting. Venues have been secured for all the meetings with the exception of the November luncheon, so check the website for information and to add those dates to your 2015 calendar. We also look forward to continuing the bowling event, which was a big hit this year, as well as our volunteer appreciation event and various community service opportunities. In between the numerous face to face opportunities, look for the chapter newsletter in your in box to stay abreast of all that is happening in the chapter.  

Your chapter leaders are committed to serving our members in all areas. We know we are geographically challenged, and we will continue to work to find ways to help our entire membership feel engaged. One way you can personally do this is to volunteer on a committee.  It often only takes 2-3 hours a month and can have such a positive impact on your personal experience as well as benefit the chapter.  

Thank you for your membership and support. Your 2015 Board of Directors looks forward to a fantastic year ahead!
