Location: ASM 3975 Lakefield Ct suite 106, Suwanee, GA 30024

Leading Successful Change
Organizations today must have targeted strategies for leading change both within their company as well as in their marketplace. There is no place for merely throwing out ideas and seeing what sticks.
Leadership must practice more than wishful thinking and dreaming. They must have more than a vision and direction. Leading successful change requires a strategy driven by a clear understanding of the current reality coupled with the resources to build for the future.
Leadership is tasked with making a difference from the inside-out. This requires a measured, proven methodology. Strategies for leading and communicating successful change initiatives are the centerpiece of this presentation.

Atlanta SMTA Expo Retrospective

To this year’s Expo Exhibitors and Attendees: We wish to thank each and every one of you for all that you do and for your patronage; without all of you there would be no SMTA Atlanta Chapter.  There was a lot of positive feedback on the exhibit hall, and our Chapter officers will work hard to incorporate all the great suggestions we received. Several more meetings are planned for this year, and we look forward to seeing you all there. Have a great rest of 2019 as we look forward to an awesome 2020.

Please see the great memory wall put together by Matt Kehoe.  Take a some time to look at the photos of our SMTA family, and enjoy the memories.
