I hope you all have had a wonderful summer. We are quickly approaching our 17th year of SGMP in the great state of Oklahoma. Many exciting things happened last year and we are excited to see what 2018-2019 has in store for our members. I hope that you enjoy being a part of this great society as much as I do. I have made many professional and personal relationships. The insight that I have received from our educational meetings and conferences has been exceptional. The incredible events I have attended at our wonderful host properties have been so much fun.
Our chapter has so many amazing things to offer to each and every one of our members. I hope each one of you will consider being more involved this year by joining a committee. We would greatly appreciate the help and feedback. By joining one of the committees you would be helping us to grow and strengthen the bond and structure so that we can continue to be one of the strongest chapters in SGMP. I look forward to see you all at our next educational meeting.
The Pencil Box
Our our community outreach project was such a success in May. Thank you to each one of you who donated to this amazing organization. Your contribution assisted the Pencil Box in providing supplies for teachers from high needs schools in the Tulsa area to shop for their students and their classrooms. If anyone else would like to give you don't worry you still can. Below is a flyer with information on how to make your donation. Whether it be monetary or classroom supplies your contributions will be put to great use for the students.
Mexico Joe's Stillwater, OK
We had a wonderful turnout in Stillwater for our April Educational Luncheon at Mexico Joe's. Our guest speaker Stan Clark's presentation titled "The Mission to Delight Every Guest by Giving My Best" was fantastic . We even got to meet Joe and Buffy! What a great way to celebrate Global Meetings Industry Day and Oklahoma SGMP! Thank you again Stan for hosting a speaking at our event.
Supplier Appreciation & Awards
We are thankful to all of our suppliers who so graciously support our chapter on many diffident levels. Without your generosity and hospitality we wouldn't be the amazing group we are. Thank you to Osage Casino for sponsoring our luncheon and to ONEOK Field in Tulsa for having us. The food was wonderful and so was the chance to socialize while recognizing our suppliers and award winners.
