As we embark on a new year, I am honored once again to serve as your SITE Southeast President and to be working side by side with such an innovative Board of Directors.
As I reflected on the past year, I choose to look at the positive. As we put 2020 behind us and look to the future, it is important to reflect on what we accomplished as a community. Your SITE SE Board of Directors put in relentless hours planning live and virtual events and yes our plans changed daily. Without any hesitation everyone jumped in! Our chapter hosted 20 Zoom events from educational events to Motown dances closing out the year with the only multiple day LIVE event in all of SITE Global, the SITE Southeast Education Summit in Ashville (Finally together as a family).
In so many ways we stood tall while apart, demonstrating the courage, innovation and resilience that are inherent to our industry. It’s made us self-reflect, make decisions for ourselves and our families. I am thankful for this and I believe this will make the world a better place. One of the key lessons I learned is the importance of belonging to a community like SITE.
For 2021 I have selected the song “We Won’t Back Down”. Together we are stronger and we will bring back the hospitality industry. Please join me in welcoming your 2021 Board of Directors.
Remember a membership is only as valuable as what you put into int. I encourage you to get involved, there are many volunteer positions and committee positions that you can be part of to grow your relationships in the chapter. The chapter focuses on B2B, utilizing our partners to take the industry to new levels! WE are SOUTHEAST Strong, and would not be where we are without all of your participation. Allow us to be part of your professional journey.
Thank you for being a part of SITE SOUTHEAST – Site Southeast-8 States Strong! “WE WONT BACK DOWN”
2020-21 President, SITE Southeast
