President's Message
September 2016 



Summer is coming to a close and graduations continue! Tallahassee, Bartow, and Eustis have all hosted beautiful graduation ceremonies for our CPM’s and in September, Naples will host the last graduation of 2016.


As I meet attend ceremonies and meet with new graduates, I tell them about my story with CPM. We have all been there – overwhelmed and leaning toward hopelessness. CPM changed that for me – and I hope it has changed that for hundreds of folks – even thousands. We have more than 5500 CPM graduates in Florida. Just think of the impact we can make if we use what we learned and “encourage the heart.”


I also take time to thank their families who have supported them throughout – especially when homework had to be done evenings and weekends. I thank their coworkers who endured 32 days without them while they were in classes. I thank their bosses and point out how marketable their newly certified employees are – after all, the program is accredited in 38 states! And of course there are others to thank – CPM office staff who do so much to make this program amazing, CPM instructors who work countless hours to ensure CPM candidates have great learning transformations, their co-students, and of course – the public we serve as they also support us in these efforts.


I talk with them about the one remaining thing there is to do to ensure the CPM experience stays with them. You all know this one – join FSCPM! I encourage them (and everyone) to affiliate with a chapter so they can be connected with a network of CPM’s. We are all very obviously dedicated to continued learning and FSCPM takes that mission seriously.


On October 13, our Suncoast Chapter will host a full-day CPM symposium in Tampa! And on November 1, our North Florida Chapter will host a full-day symposium in Tallahassee!  Please click on Tampa or Tallahassee for details and we hope to see you there!


Please call or write anytime!


Your President,

Lorna Kibbey
