The Incentive for Excellence
SITE SoCal Community,
I want to wish you all a very Happy New Year and success in 2019. With each new year brings new opportunities and challenges that result in successes and lessons learned. These successes and lessons are what shape us and help mold the person and professional that we are. We should consider ourselves lucky for the opportunity to learn. I hope that you all are as excited as I am about 2019 and that you will connect with SITE SoCal throughout the year.

From what we have learned from past SITE Young Leaders Conferences, these relationships will become deeply rooted friendships, mentorships, and peer support. What facilitates these outcomes? A great venue, global participants, and thought-provoking content.

To celebrate Creativity at the May SITE SoCal Luncheon, we had brunch instead of lunch, and took all fundamentals of meeting planning and threw them out the door.
