SGMP Sacramento Chapter Meeting


Thursday, January 12, 2017
Residence Inn Sacramento Downtown at Capitol Park
1121 15th Street, Sacramento, CA

LEAD-ER-SHIP: The action of leading a group of people or an organization. The state or position of being a leader.

Have you been an SGMP member and want to take on a larger role? Would you like to transition into a leadership position but aren’t sure how? Want to step up, and get your feet wet, but you’re not sure what is required?

Attend the January meeting to learn about the opportunities to serve and how to become one of the Chapters’ leaders. Receive information on the positions available, from Committee Chairs to Chapter President, and possibly National Board Member. The various duties and responsibilities will be discussed. Receive information from the individuals who have held those offices and chaired the committees. The open discussion will allow you to have your questions answered and provide you with a forum to receive vital information in a fun and informative way. You’ll be prepared to be elected and serve!

  • Learn some proven traits of leaders
  • Discover the opportunities to serve in a leadership role
  • Discuss what the possible paths are to move into the position that you desire
  • Learn about the rewards of serving as a leader

All this and more!

Presented and moderated by Shryl Avril, Sacramento chapter member and Certified Learning and Development Specialist, with the assistance and input of several past and present chapter officers and National Board members.

The meeting is scheduled from 4:45 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Registration begins at 4:15 p.m. We look forward to seeing you there!
