From the President

Good afternoon, All,

This week leaves us all with a heavy heart as we reckon with systemic injustice. There is a little that I can say that was not already said best by our SMPS President, Melissa Lutz. So I will repeat her words here:

"We share in the pain, sadness, and countless other emotions that our members are experiencing. Now is the time for us to be present and stand alongside one another.
 
We acknowledge the inequality and social injustice that persists.
 
Now is unimaginably difficult for many of us. There has never been a better time to show empathy—to reach out to a client, coworker, or colleague—and simply listen.
 
The leadership that our members exemplify within their firms now and in the future has the power to greatly impact our industries and communities.

We encourage everyone to engage in the necessary conversations to help move us forward. We are committed to being part of the solution."

Locally, the GCSMPS Chapter is currently working to create educational opportunities for our members to learn how we can be the change we want to see in the workplace. We will share more details as they are confirmed.
 
 We stand beside you.


Jen Sturges, CPSM

Help others Dress for Success

Dress for Success: Postponed

In light of the current health situation across the country, we have decided to postpone our Dress for Success indefinitely.

Those who have been impacted by COVID-19 will need our help more than ever once the workforce returns to normal so we encourage you to continue cleaning our your closet to help those in need! Keep an eye out later in the year for upcoming donation dates.
