Sacramento Chapter wins THREE awards in Ft. Lauderdale!

It is so exciting to share the news that the Sacramento Chapter brought home three awards from the National Education Conference.

Kudos to Robin Pollock and Crystal Spencer, co-chairs of the Education Committee, for their committee's stellar programs. Along with Robin and Crystal, the members in attendance enjoyed seeing the chapter receive the second place award for best program. The "ABC-101", program (when we learned about the rules and regulations surrounding the use of alcohol at our meetings and events) was selected for this award.

As Robin pointed out on her Facebook page, few will remember who received first place after all the whooping and hollering taking place!

Sacramento was definitely IN THE HOUSE! We submitted the same program for the "Innovation" award since we began providing Facebook Live presentations for our remote members during that program. We were rewarded for that effort and won SGMP's first Innovation award.

The third award was a complete surprise as national President Michelle Milligan honored Kit Gonzales with one of two national President's awards. Kit's trophy says that her involvement has made an impact on the organization. Kit says the same thing back, SGMP has made a positive impact on her life.
