It’s that time of year when we switch out our beach totes and tank tops for backpacks and sweaters. The transition from Summer to Fall has officially begun. As we move into this season, it’s a perfect time to reflect on what is important to us. Family, friends, and of course your SEGD membership! Fall is a perfect time to join or renew as you prepare for the next year in your career.
SEGD will be hosting our second annual SEGD September event, dedicating the entire month to our members; both new and renewing. Each week in September we will introduce a theme that centered around the pillars of SEGD:
- Week 1: Sept 5-9 | Sharing
- Week 2: Sept 12-16 | Education
- Week 3: Sept 19-23 | Gratitude
- Week 4: Sept 26-30 | Diversity
