Event planning, what could be more fun than that?

Are you an awesome, creative, motivated, out-of-the-box thinker with great people skills? If you have these qualities, you can say that you are a born event planner and are bound to be a rock star on the Special Events Committee!

Our mission is to build camaraderie, encourage the growth of our membership, and provide additional opportunities for chapter networking – all while having a little FUN along the way! We create memorable events to bring members and non-members together, celebrate chapter successes, and thank members for all they do. Several of our themed events, such as our annual Holiday Party and the Liberty Ball, are the go-to events of the year for the Chapter. Others include seasonal spirits events and the member appreciation event. Depending on the event, we meet either monthly or on a bi-monthly basis to further our event planning activities. Committee members take on specific tasks related to the special event being planned.

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)

Calm down. Take a deep breath. We’re not asking you to do that.

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. I can’t sell things to people.” If that describes you, then you’re perfect for this committee. Sponsorship isn’t about the hard sell; it’s about drinking the Kool-Aid. (more…)
