Paying it Forward: Charitable Initiatives for You and Your Firm – Team Building, Leadership, Pride
Volunteering can be an inspirational and empowering endeavor. Have you wondered how you can connect volunteering efforts and charitable initiatives to the growth of your career and opportunities for your firm? There are many ways to volunteer in the AEC industry. At this session of the Coordinators Club we will hear from experts who will inspire you with their tales of their amazing volunteering efforts, tell you how they connected it to skills they use at work and expanded their leadership skills all while helping their communities. We will cover:
- Meaningful volunteering at the individual level – grow your heart and resume.
- Volunteering as a team building exercise for your firm or organization – learn about SMPS’s upcoming charity race with Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation.
- How to create a volunteering strategy for your firm – plan your budget and resources and how to get Partner buy in for these efforts, and how to promote these goodwill initiatives.
- Design specific charitable efforts including Engineers Without Borders and the CANstruction design competition.
Coordinator’s Club Brown Bag Lunch events are to initiate conversations among junior marketing staff and are open to all members of SMPS. These lunch sessions consist of an open discussion on a variety of topics, ranging from awards submissions to proposals to project photography. They are free to attend, we just ask that you bring your own lunch (beverages and sweets will be provided).
Your name must be put on a list to enter the building, so please bring a photo ID. Don’t worry, we won’t hold you to it if a last minute deadline pops up, though we appreciate cancellations, too.
