May 2021 Message from the President

This month I’d like to highlight some things that I’m excited about!

  1. Our digital community powered by Social 27 launches this week for all our active members! Keep an eye out for communication and join us at our May 5th Lunch and Learn! We are launching this to increase engagement across all our member states, help maintain and build connection and continue to provide real-time education and conversations.
  2. I had the opportunity to participate with the Capital chapter in Virtual Hill Week. Personally, I had always heard advocacy highlighted during GMID week but had never gotten involved. My group had the opportunity to meet with several Illinois senators and representatives’ staff to highlight legislation that can make a tangible difference to helping our hospitality community. It felt amazing to be able to tell the story of our GMC members and I’m excited to find ways our chapter can help support the efforts further.
  3. I booked my first industry trip in over a year this week, PCMA Educon in July in Phoenix! This combined with the hybrid activities we have planned as a chapter starting in June, like our Awards Celebration, have given me a boost. I’m excited to safely meet again and engage with in a truly omni-channel experience to best serve every member where they are!
