Dear SMPS DC Members,

With summer fast approaching, let’s get ready to celebrate! For SMPS DC, that means it’s time to rejoice for another amazing year boasting fantastic programs; the dedication and hard work of our committee volunteers; and the passing of the torch to our incoming 2017-2018 Board of Directors.

On Tuesday, June 13, we’ll be hosting our annual Summer Celebration event at Tonic of Quigley's Pharmacy to recognize the ongoing achievements of the Chapter, Board, committee volunteers, sponsors and members. Our host, SMPS DC President Laura Ewan, CPSM, will announce the winners of this year’s Rising Star, New Heights Volunteer and Golden Tuba awards. We will also take this opportunity to vote into office the 2017–2018 Board.

As President–Elect and longtime SMPS member, I am excited to build upon the commitment for excellence that our chapter has earned throughout the SMPS community under the leadership of our Past Presidents. Additionally, I’m looking forward to exploring new innovations, programs, and partnerships that will engage our members and increase the value SMPS brings to our community, firms, and industry. Personally, I want you to know that I intend to focus my efforts in better serving our member’s needs, advocating for our profession, and developing leadership opportunities for all SMPS volunteers.
