2017 March Newsletter

What a Great February we had!  Not only was the weather incredibly reasonable for a February, we had some things to celebrate at SME.  First, was the SME Excellence Awards® honoring our own SME member Mr. Bernie DeWald as the 2017 South Dakota Sales and Marketing Executive of the Year™.  The committee put on an incredible show that showcased Mr. DeWald as a true ambassador for Sioux Falls.  It was very evident, with many of his friends showing him respect on the big screen and being present for the event, that he was the perfect choice.   Congrats Bernie on a very deserving accomplishment and on being chosen the 2017 South Dakota Sales and Marketing Executive of the Year™! 

Next up is all the planning going on by the SME Women in Business® committee.  The committee is doing an incredible job planning for the event, but they need our help. SME
Women in Business® is seeking nominations for their Women of Excellence awards. .  This link, https://www.smesiouxfalls.org/sme-women-in-business/nominate-a-woman-of-excellence/  will give you more information on the type of awards the committee is seeking nominations for.  Also, the SME Women in Business® committee would like to get the word out to keep people updated with SME Women in Business® event details. People can text “SME” to 605-550-4009 (Text messaging fees and rates may apply.) and the committee will be doing constant updates from now through the event.  Thank you, committee, for all your help and efforts!!!  We also want to thank KELOLAND TV and KELO FM Radio for your sponsorship help in getting the word out to the public. More information and a list of all sponsors is found on this link:  https://www.smesiouxfalls.org/sme-women-in-business/

Lastly, don’t forget our March 28th membership meeting.  Avera is our sponsor and Beth Terry will be our speaker.  Here’s more information on her topic:  https://www.smesiouxfalls.org/Calendar/SME-Events/2017-March-SME-Membership-Meeting Help grow our membership and bring a membership qualified guest to hear her talk and learn what we do at SME to give all “an Edge To Your Success®”.
