FOUNDER'S MESSAGE

We are so excited to be starting our 4th Year in GPS. We have made some amazing progress  and our team of leaders has been so instrumental in ensuring our growth and making our meetings a truly great experience for our members.  Please take a moment to thank the leadership of GPS when you are at a meeting or event. They truly give their whole hearts to you and the recognition is much appreciated!  Our Executive Board committed at our first board meeting of this year to Leadership Development. We have put together a program that will not only help our leaders to be more effective but grow in their businesses as well.  Thank you all for the dedication for caring about others as much as you do. That is what make us so proud and strong.

Hugs, Debbie
