MSE Detroit President's Message

               March 2019

               Maximize It March!


Dear Friends,

Did you miss our annual meeting in February?  Here’s a quick recap! On February 13that our Annual Membership Meeting, held at Pop’s for Italian, we had some great conversation and insights from our MSE Detroit Past Presidents, including Grant Faulkner, Rich Marsolais and Gary Corbin, as we kicked off our 31styear in operation.  Why? Because #31ismoreFUN!

We showed a sneak peek of our new logo, talked about some exciting upcoming events and gave away great prizes!  Congratulations to Mary Gabriel and Rich Marsolais on winning the Pop’s for Italian gift cards, and to Jan Griffiths for winning a one-year membership to MSE Detroit!  We could not be happier to have you join our organization!

Speaking of #31ismoreFUN, would you like to MAXIMIZE your membership by being an integral part of a team that creates exciting, unique events on emerging Sales and Marketing topics?  We are always on the lookout for passionate, motivated individuals that want to contribute to our cause! Being a part of an MSE Detroit Task Force or Committee is a great way to stretch your leadership skills and creativity.  I can honestly say that since joining MSE Detroit in 2014, I have continuously stretched beyond my comfort zone, from taking on committee and task force roles to riding around a high speed race track at the M1 Concourse and even moderating my first panel conversation.  It’s a great feeling to press beyond what you thought you could do, and I encourage you to realize this incredible value of your membership by doing the same.

Not sure how to get started?  Connect with me on LinkedIn or reach out to one of our board members.  We will get you in touch with the Task Force or Committee Chair so you can check out a meeting. Or, just share your fresh ideas!

 JAN-19      Happy New Year! 

 Dear Friends,

And just like that, the new year is off and running! I hope that your 2019 is off to an incredible start! January can be a very introspective time…reflecting on where we have been and where we are going. Resolutions are thrown out there on social media. Special words are identified for personal growth. A clean slate is out there just waiting to be filled with moments, memories and events as we anticipate what is coming up next.

So, what’s coming up next for MSE Detroit??? I’m glad you asked. This is an exciting year for us as we celebrate our 31st year of recognizing outstanding professionals at our Evening of Excellence, awarding scholarships to those pursuing careers in Sales & Marketing (and skilled trades!), cultivating meaningful relationships and learning from professional development and amazing leaders.

That’s why I’m so excited to share our MSE Detroit “31 is more FUN” calendar lineup with you. Our Programs Committee has been hard at work building relationships and developing programs for your pleasure and learning. So, quick, grab your calendar and write down these dates! And then, click on the links to get registered. Check our website frequently for updates on open registration. Sponsorship opportunities are also available for all events to promote yourself and your company!

At MSE Detroit, one of our critical missions is to provide outstanding development, networking and recognition for Sales and Marketing professionals throughout the career spectrum…from your first internship through retirement and beyond. If you are benefiting from your MSE Detroit membership, please share your experience with us, your friends and colleagues. Drop us a line, or share your experience via Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn!
