December 2019 Print

From the President


December is upon us! It's hard to believe that it's already time to celebrate 2019 and the arrival of another new year. In the coming weeks, the Board will reflect on the first few months of the SMPS year and make any necessary adjustments. It's a great time for feedback; if you have ideas for us, please reach out.

In the spirit of giving, we have partnered with Toys for Tots for our Holiday Happy Hour this Thursday, December 12, at Schaefer's office. We ask that you bring to the event a new toy for a child in need. No need to wrap 'em—your gift is perfect as is. Whether you bring a set of Jenga or a remote control car, you will surely put a smile on a child's face. And, starting in March, we will open up our annual Dress For Success/Brighton Center donation competition. Stay tuned for more information on specific times and dates. Like last year, we will be rewarding the high-achieving donor firms with a prize.

As we welcome the new year, we will also welcome several SMPS Fellows to the Cincinnati area. Our chapter is unique in that we have a high concentration of SMPS superstars. Led by SMPS President Melissa Lutz, the Flying with Fellows event will be held on January 9 at THP. I hope you will join us as we learn from our esteemed regional colleagues.

Last but not least, I'm pleased to announce that January's program topic will be economic development in Northern Kentucky. Mark your calendars for January 16, 2020.

Wishing you all the best this holiday season. 

Jen Sturges, CPSM
Greater Cincinnati SMPS President
