2016 

 

 

July 28, 2016, 200 people were officially welcomed to the ranks of Certified Public Managers. Two hundred graduates walked across the stage at Florida State University’s Ruby Diamond Theater to the wild applause of more than 700 people in attendance. What a sight.

 

Before the end of summer 2016, we will see a total of 484 new graduates bringing the total number of CPM’s in Florida to more than 5500.

 

I spent the week with these new CPM’s as they completed Level 8 and were reminded to keep their eye on the “Big Picture.” Remember that activity? I had the privilege of meeting with several members of our North Florida Chapter Board (on a Sunday no less) and enjoyed hearing their thoughts and opinions. Mostly, I enjoyed observing what no one said out loud – the pure passion and dedication of these CPM’s. Chapter members were at Level 8 every day and made an impression – I’m sure they will bring in several new members as a result.

 

For me personally, there were many lessons learned this week and much to think about in improving the support FSCPM provides. I want to share one thought with you that can’t wait. Chapter affiliation is important! I encourage all members to affiliate themselves with a Chapter – even if you are far away. Choose the closest chapter and ask to be affiliated (no cost). Why? The Chapters are sending newsletters, holding regular meetings, planning symposiums, and providing social network opportunities. It is a powerful way to stay connected! Staying connected takes personal commitment – find a way to make and keep that commitment.

 

Speaking of Chapters, our Suncoast Chapter and our North Florida Chapter are both planning symposiums in the fall! Please go to our website www.fscpm.org and look for more information.

 

Next month – graduations in Bartow and Eustis – and in September, Southwest Florida will host their second ever graduation. Wow!

 

Please call or write anytime!
