Dear SITE Midwest friends,
It is an honor to address you as the 2022 SITE Midwest president. Being a member of SITE Midwest means being a dedicated member of and advocate for our industry. It means you know the value in continued education and the growth possible through our networking events. It means you are committed to our industry after the hardships we faced in 2020 and 2021 and may continue to face for some time to come. And I’m so glad you’ve stuck with us. It is my goal to make sure you feel the value of your membership in 2022.
In 2021 we achieved some amazing feats, including operating the first international SITE event for a US chapter in August. We plan to continue our SITE Midwest Forum this summer and hope you’ll join us for something truly special. We plan to continue our popular road shows and webinars, but we have some changes in store that we think will increase value for our members, buyers and sponsors alike.
I live my life following some words my father instilled in me time and time again: “There’s no bad news. There’s just news.” This goes hand in hand with our motto for the SITE Midwest Forum: “Adapt. Respond. Transform.” We’ve spent the last two years handling everything that came our way by adapting and responding. We’re still here. Together, let’s transform and make 2022 SITE Midwest’s best year yet.
I hope to see you on the road this year. Cheers to your commitment, cheers to your strength and cheers to our industry. There’s no bad news.
