2018 April SME Newsletter

Happy Spring (?) SME Member!

Hard to believe, as I write this, we are deep into April and the weekends have been, let’s say, not ideal.   Spring storms of snow, and now maybe a foot of snow?  We are the hearty people of South Dakota after all, so bring it on and get it over.

April 24th  is SME Women in Business®,  at the Sioux Falls Convention Center!   Our committee has put together a great day for everyone.   Hilary Farr will be our keynote speaker, and should be fantastic in bringing a message to all in attendance.   This afternoon Trade Fair and Seminar sessions followed by the evening event, is a highlight of SME of Sioux Falls’ year!  Hope you can come.   Tickets ($75 each) can be ordered by calling the SME Office at 605-336-5626.

On April 17th we have our one and only SME evening meeting.   Why? To celebrate our winners of the SME Scholarships for Sales and Marketing.   I know time is precious, but to have these students know we, as a business community care. is one of the core missions of SME Sioux Falls and to award scholarships to our deserving college business students a philanthropic goal.

Devin Henderson will be our speaker that evening.   He will talk about how humor biologically improves mood and performance and how humor provides perspective in the work place.   It should be a great SME Meeting on how we can all improve culture in the workplace while bringing in fun.

Let’s look forward to better weather!

Make it happen,

Mark Buehler
