Our society typically has a break for students in the middle of March - a time to
relax, recuperate and reflect on our lives, and a time to evaluate and envision on
how we can be the best that we can be.
We know we can't be the best at everything and that there will always be
someone better at a particular skill either in the present or in the future, so we
strive to improve ourselves every day, knowing that failure is just as important in
order for us to grow and discover where we will find the most success. For truly,
there are no regrets in the choices we make, but only possible lessons to help us
succeed in the future.
Now, we all excel in different ways with different talents, which is why, when we
come together as a chapter and as an industry, we are able to leverage the myriad
of talents available to create amazing experiences for our guests. It's with that
thought in mind, that I invite you (if you are not already doing so) to volunteer
with our chapter, in whatever capacity, so we can continue to create and build the
future of our industry together.
Our chapter certainly strives to be the best in everything that we do. However,
as some members have been informing us, being the best only makes sense when
we understand who we are and what we represent. As our industry continues to
change, so do we, and we will continue to need your feedback and support as we
grow. We welcome your input at any time as we plan for the continued success of
the Toronto Chapter.
P.S. In the months of March and April, come celebrate with us as we honour
the best volunteers over the past year at our Awards Gala on March 10; or join us
at Global Meetings Industry Day on April 14, where we gather as an industry and
tell the rest of the world why we are so successful. ●
