I just thought I would let you know that I am running for the SDP Board as member at large for next year. I know this may seem a little early but I am reaching out to painting friends and chapters requesting their support. I know that I am fairly new to the industry but everything that I do and have done is to promote decorative painting, increase member numbers and try to increase our industry ...presence. I was asked if I would run by the nominating committee while at HOOT and I accepted as I feel that now is a perfect time to work with our chapters and members to build a bigger, stronger, and more responsive SDP. If we all work together, then we can definitely make a difference. I will be representing the members, chapters and other painting friends if I am elected. I will use my years of experience (over 40) in business, marketing and Human Resources management to help bring about change throughout SDP. It is time for a new, bigger, stronger and better SDP, I think.
The voting, as you know, will be at next year's 2012 SDP Conference however, for those members that cannot attend the conference, there is an absentee ballot process where non-attending members can vote making their voices heard.
Hopefully, I can count on your vote and support. I think it is time that our members are heard and my intention is to work very hard on their behalf.
If you are not a SDP member or if you need to renew your membership, now is the perfect time to do just that. Have a great day and happy painting.
