    PRESIDENT'S LETTER: Welcome to Our 2020-2021 Program Year!

    It is with great honor that I greet you as President of the SMPS Northeast Ohio Chapter and welcome you to the 2020-2021 Program Year!

    I would like to first recognize the amazing leadership team our chapter has assembled this year. We had the fortunate opportunity to hold an outdoor, socially distant, planning session and I was blown away by the enthusiasm and passion that our group is bringing to the year ahead. We have so many talented professionals willing to share their time and expertise to make the chapter the best it can be for all of you. I am beyond thankful to be surrounded by this team.

    Secondly, I would be remiss if I did not thank our members and company supporters. You are absolutely the foundation of our organization and we are committed to delivering programming that provides value to each one of you. I know this year will be filled with twists and turns, but our Executive Board and Committee Chairs are dedicated to making it a year of professional development and industry partnership.

    While we would much rather meet in person, together we will hurdle the obstacles of 2020 and deliver a year that will not disappoint. Just next month alone, we are offering three virtual programs that will provide you with the opportunity to hear from industry experts, grow your career, and network with new and prospective SMPS NEO members.

    Lastly, and as always, I want you to remind you that I have an “open door” policy for members and non-members alike. If you have any questions or concerns, or you need to be connected to the right person, please feel free to call or text me at (440) 590-3412 or email me at [email protected]. We also always love to hear your ideas for education, member events, and programs!

    I am excited about what the 2020-2021 program year holds for us all. Stay tuned for more information on what we can accomplish together in the year ahead.
