Welcome Letter from Nicole Apel, the New SMPS San Diego Chapter President!

Nicole Apel, SMPS San Diego Chap­ter Pres­i­dent 2017–2018

Hel­lo SMPS San Diego mem­bers and friends!

I am hon­ored to serve as your chap­ter Pres­i­dent for the 2017–2018 fis­cal year. I’m look­ing for­ward to see­ing all of you at the many great events we have planned, includ­ing our first lun­cheon, held joint­ly with Design-Build Insti­tute of Amer­i­ca (DBIA),  on Sep­tem­ber 14. Info here!

I am pleased to announce two big pieces of news for the upcom­ing year: first, Build Busi­ness, the SMPS nation­al con­fer­ence, is com­ing to San Diego August 15 through 17, 2018! We are excit­ed to be the host chap­ter and show off America’s finest city. I haven’t been to a nation­al con­fer­ence since 2006 in Los Ange­les, so I’m curi­ous about all the new fea­tures like MAX talks (sim­i­lar to a TED Talk) and the Dig­i­tal Skills Lab. The call for speak­ers is out now, so feel free to spread the work, if you know of any­one who has some­thing inter­est­ing to present. We’re hop­ing to get San Diego local and chap­ter favorite, Jen­ni Prisk, to the con­fer­ence to share one of her fun­ny and poignant pre­sen­ta­tions with the rest of the coun­try.

The sec­ond piece of big news is the revamp­ing of our chap­ter web­site, smpssd​.org. David Lecours of Lecours­De­sign, will be work­ing with our Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Com­mit­tee Co-Chairs to pro­vide us with a mod­ern look that is eas­i­er to nav­i­gate. We’re look­ing for­ward to a forth­com­ing launch in Jan­u­ary 2018.

Last­ly, I want all of you to know I have an “open door” pol­i­cy for mem­bers and non-mem­bers alike. If you have any ques­tions or con­cerns, or you just need to be con­nect­ed to the right per­son, please feel free to call me at my office (760) 931‑7700 exten­sion 113 or email me at nicolea@odayconsultants.com.

Look­ing for­ward to a great year!

Nicole Apel

SMPS San Diego Chap­ter Pres­i­dent 2017–2018

Mar­ket­ing Coor­di­na­tor,

O’Day Con­sul­tants
