President's Message


Dear SMPS Members & Future Members:

This is my second time around as an SMPS Michigan President. I remember when I joined back in 2011, I had absolutely no idea what I was doing. I had no clue how to start planning an event, how to lead a meeting, or run a Chapter for that matter. It's amazing how quickly your leadership skills build within this organization.

The chapter members in SMPS Michigan are here to build you up and support to you get you where you need to be. I cannot credit myself for getting to the top of this organization twice - it was all the incredible role models, colleagues, and FRIENDS who lifted me up when I was scared and unsure. If you're looking for a place to be included and be supported, this is where you belong.

My challenge to all of you is to lift someone up today who needs it. Let them take the credit. Give them the praise they deserve. Thank someone for their hardwork. BE A SPONSOR NOT JUST A MENTOR. It is far more rewarding, and the result is an organization that benefits ten-fold.

 

Jennifer Huebel, CPSM
