The MarCom board couldn’t be more excited for the 2012 – 2013 Membership Year to begin, as proven evident by the short film they made for everyone who attends the first meeting of the year, Friday, September 7th at The Lincoln Center from 7:00AM to 9:00AM.
You might have noticed September breakfast isn't at the Herak club. That's for a very good reason... take a look at the teaser trailer—our Membership Chair goes to the President with a problem too big for one board member.
Catch up with your fellow MarCom friends over some drinks and pizza before the start of our 2012-2013 year. This event is free to MarCom members or $5 for non-members. We'll also be accepting donations at the social to help fund our Internship Program.
Please RSVP by August 10th. We'll see you on the patio!
(Please note, there is parking in back of PRESS and on the street, but it is the South Hill so you know how that is! We recommend car pooling if you can.)
Your board of directors for the Spokane Regional MarCom Association have spent long hours of work this summer preparing another fantastic year for you. Their enthusiasm and passion for this remarkable field of marketing and communications shows in the line up of excellent programs and the exciting new changes to membership you'll see in this newsletter.
Friends, we hope you will join us and embrace a fresh beginning, an opportunity to grow, learn, change and renew friendships of colleagues across the region at MarCom this year. We think you'll be really pleased with what you find.
Thanks for being a part of MarCom. We can't wait to see you again!
An editorial by Nick Kelly, Events ChairA couple months ago I asked myself, “What are you great at?” It took me four hours to come up with one skill. That may be indicative of my personality; however, when I asked a group of my peers the same question it took an average of one hour to come up with a response. It is important for us to understand that we are all capable of great things and that greatness comes from our strengths. This is the philosophy I have adopted and it is the message of a book I highly recommend reading, StrengthsFinder 2.0 by Tom Rath.
Are you interested in getting your name in front of a large audience of your peers? Consider sponsoring an upcoming MarCom meeting, social or the Spark Awards. It is your chance to get great exposure for your business while supporting our internship program. Last year, we were able to supply three students with local paid internships in marketing and communications. We could not have done that without the support of our sponsors.
