Sales.

Yuck.

For some people, the thought of placing cold calls leaves that throw up aftertaste in their mouths. Visions of sleazy used-car salesmen. Family dinners being interrupted by landlines ringing with offers of mortgage refinancing opportunities. Trips to the mailbox to find junk mail instead of Grandma’s birthday card with the check in it.

You want ME to do that for the chapter?!

(Dry heaves)

When I was asked to join the Sponsorship Committee in 2014 – long before I had any thought of being its Director – my first thought was, “I’m a terrible liar.

It seems like only yesterday when we began planning the year to come and I was equal parts excited and nervous at the prospect of what lies ahead. Adrenaline kicked in soon enough and the nervousness turned into a drive and vigor to get going with the planning of the SMPS year of programs, networking and professional development.
