Diana Brown, CPSM, Marketing Manager at Harvey
SMPS Member since: April 2005; Board of Directors Position: Treasurer
What does your committee (or position) do? As Treasurer I make sure we pay our bills on time and have money to be able to provide amazing programming.
Why did you want to be on the board? The Treasurer role can be pretty intimidating; I wanted to take on the challenge and learn new skills.
What do you hope to accomplish as director/chair? I hope to grow the financial strength of our chapter so that we can continue giving back to our volunteers and members.
What advice would you give to someone interested in becoming a board member? Just do it! Join a committee and be an active member, let the committee director know that you’re interested in being a board member, and work towards that goal. We’re always in need of volunteers and leaders I’m certain if you want to be a board member we can figure out a path to make that happen. I would love to help any member become more involved and am always available by phone or email.
Why do you love SMPS? Because of SMPS I have gained leadership and technical skills and expanded my network which has all resulted in career growth. I love SMPS because of the friendships, some of my very best and dearest friends I meet through SMPS.
