Hello from the Northeast Regional ÜBER Conference in (chilly) Boston! For your running president, it is so exciting to be in this city the same week as the 119th Boston Marathon. It’s inspiring. Something else that is inspiring is how our chapter has contributed to making this conference great: – First and foremost, Shannon Koop, conference co-chair extraordinaire! Your dedication, organization, and positive energy have made this a truly amazing conference. On behalf of the entire SMPS-NY chapter, we are so proud to have you as our representative and call you one of our own. Thank you, thank you!

[expand title=”Click here to read more…”] – Sharyn Yorio: conference sponsorship co-chair: You set a ridiculous goal for sponsorship. You led your team to exceed it. No surprise there. You are a master at making tough stuff look easy.

– We have had a lot of fun at this conference, and we have you to thank, Genesis Vasquez, conference special events co-chair!

– Gil Brindley: I’m still mesmerized by that story you told about the zip line during your presentation this morning. Duty. Honor. Country. You gave a big crowd a lot to think about!

– Also representing our chapters by speaking were Meredith Lovejoy and Kirsten Sibilia; Sarah Hoff and Andrew Weinberg also spoke at the CPSM day on Wednesday. I’m sorry I didn’t attend those presentations, but the word on the street is that they were fantastic!

– One more shout-out to Krysta Venturella, our scholarship winner. It was so much fun chatting with you this morning! It feels so good that our chapter made this experience possible for you!

– Jason Vesuvio: thank you, from all of us, for being a big thinker and part of the team that came up with the idea of an ÜBER conference. And thank you for sticking with that idea to make it a reality.

– Lastly, I’d like to give a shout-out to my new friend Brent Robertson of Fathom. For the moment, we’ll count you as an honorable SMPS-NY chapter member so that I can thank you for one of the most inspirational and motivational runs of my career this morning.
