Whew… every day this week has been long, but the weekend is in sight! February is extra busy because this is the month we put together our Parthenon Awards entries – the big PR/marketing awards in town. I have 11 entries and have so far logged abut 30 hours on them. I will probably have close to 40 when it is all said and done. I AM going out of town next week (more on that in a minute), which means I have to have everything done by Monday.
I have two photo shoots to direct next week – one in Austin, TX and one in Denver, CO. I have never been to either city, so I am looking forward to at least seeing a bit of both. Any recommendations or things I should know about either city?
I get back Friday night around 6:30 pm, and then I have to be at the airport at 5:45 am Saturday to go visit my friend Colleen. I get home early in the morning on Monday and then will go straight to work. I am going to be tired!
A week from Tuesday I start Young Leaders Council, which I am VERY excited about. Here’s a bit about it from the YLC website: The Mission of the Young Leaders Council is to train diverse, committed individuals to effectively participate on the boards of nonprofit organizations and make a difference in the community by replenishing the volunteer leadership base.
The YLC consists of a ten-session training program, addressing fundamental board skills, followed by a year-long internship on the board of a community nonprofit agency as a nonvoting member. There are two training sessions held each year in the Spring and the Fall with approximately 30-35 participants in each class from companies all over Middle Tennessee.
Then on Wednesday the 5th we are supposed to find out the sex of the baby. However, I might have to go on an overnight trip to For Lauderdale!! I am hoping it works out that I can still go to the appointment, or move it to Monday or Tuesday. I don’t think I can wait much longer!
Have a good day… I will check in again soon.
