Hello all and welcome to the season of change.
As the foothold of spring has solidified its place for the year, we have each gotten the opportunity to witness and be a part of a number of changes and transitions over the last few weeks - in our natural surroundings as the leaves emerge from trees, buds turn to flowers, and birds start to nest, in many of our work lives as more and more companies embrace the start of a return to office, and, of course, at NCPMI as we kick-off the start of our transition to in-person/hybrid events. On May 5th, NCPMI will host a networking event officially welcoming the chapter back to in-person events. It’ll be a time to reconnect and have some fun with your fellow chapter members, some of whom you may not have seen or heard from in a while. In addition to networking and catching up, there will be games and raffle drawings, so it’ll be an event that you won’t want to miss! To register, click here!
If you’re like me, this time of year is also a time for planning, whether it’s what and how much to plant in the garden, a race or event to train for later in the year, or maybe a trip to see or do something new. As each of you thinks about your plans, I would encourage you to think about the possibility of volunteering and giving back to this great community that we’re all a part of within NCPMI. As the chapter begins the transition back to more and more in-person events, the need for volunteers to support chapter events will continue to increase. If you’ve been thinking about setting a goal to give back or putting a plan in motion to meet more people, now is a great time to jump on board and start the transition!
For many of us, the spring season has always been an exciting time, but this year in particular the season seems just a bit more special.
