New Year…New Challenges…New Opportunities

I once heard that with the changing of the seasons, comes new opportunity to plant, grow, harvest and celebrate the bounty of our successes. As your new President, I am excited to start the new 2018-2019 Sales and Marketing Executives, Inc. of Sioux Falls’  year as the year of “Seasons of Opportunity”.

SME gives all of us the ability to plant new ideas and best practices to give our organizations, and each of us “An Edge to Your Success®”.  As we grow our membership, our roots become stronger and healthier, which gives SME as an organization, the ability to advance our mission of idea interchange through Membership Meetings and Mixers and educational content through local and national speakers at our monthly meetings, and at quarterly small group discussions.  ( SME Calendar)

As we harvest the knowledge and fellowship that our organization has to offer, keep in mind that we all have the responsibility to help in the planting by being present and joining a committee. Growth comes by each one of us reaching out to a qualified person to join and strengthen our membership. With strong leadership and commitment, SME members can reap the benefits of the harvest and celebrate in our bounty we have nurtured together.

This brings me to the next opportunity to plant and grow our membership at the 2018 Annual SME Golf JAM (Join-A-Member event), which is being held on August 14th at the Spring Creek Golf Club. I hope to see you there as a golfer, volunteer, a hole sponsor, or the fellowship of the social hour. Let’s make this 2018-2019 a great year and a bountiful season!  (Membership Application)
