President's Message

December 2017

Hello Chapter Members,

Are you in the Holiday Spirit yet? Or are you one of those that sets up your Christmas tree and decorations before Thanksgiving! If you are not in the spirit yet I am sure you will be with the whirlwind of the Holiday season including amazing Holiday Parties! This year the MPITBA Holiday Party Committee has planned the incredible “Boots and Bling” Holiday Party sponsored by Visit Tampa Bay! There will be Boots-Scootin, BBQ and bottomless Booze! I look forward to seeing many of you there in your best attire at the Epicenter Event Venue on Dec 7th at 7pm!

Two other super huge announcements that you cannot miss MPITBA is accepting nominations and applications for the 2018-2019 Board of Directors through December 11th. Not only will the incoming board of directors be under the incredible leadership of Sara Melvin but they will also be a part of an incredibly talented group of individuals that will continue to move our chapter forward in innovative ways. Please make sure to get your applications in as soon as possible! Also you should have received the Chapter Needs Assessment Survey this month, if not there is a chance your email is not up to date so please visit the page to update your information. This survey is to assess our chapter member’s interests, likes, dislikes and to get ideas from you the members on what you would like to see in the future. Your opinion matters, so please make sure to respond to the quick survey that your Membership team has diligently put together.

I am sure I will blink and December will be over and the next thing I know it will be 2018! Slow down, take it in and enjoy! I hope everyone has a wonderful and prosperous Holiday season and a beautiful and safe New Years!
