Posted: Tue, Jan 17 2023 12:00 am
SMPS Oregon has so many amazing, talented committee volunteers and we want to recognize those that step up to get things done! The monthly MVP is nominated by the Board of Directors for outstanding contributions to our chapter and going above and beyond their general committee responsibilities.
This month, we’d like to give the MVP Award and a round of applause to Programs Committee member Jodi Sommers, Marketing Manager at Essex Construction.
Read what was said about her recent contributions:
“Jodi and I have worked together on the Programs Committee for years, and over that time I have come to truly value her knowledge, perspective, and friendship. She is extremely reliable, and I love that she isn’t afraid to push back if she doesn’t feel like we are headed in the right direction. Jodi did most of the planning for our Fall panel on Trends in Hospitality, helping secure panelists, a moderator, and developing a thorough list of questions. The event would not have been a success without her! Jodi is absolutely an MVP on the Programs Committee and I am thrilled to nominate her for the recognition.”
– Alexi Meuwissen, SMPS Programs Director, Scott Edwards Architecture
“Jodi is a delight to work with for several reasons, including simply because her cheerful attitude makes meetings just a little more fun. She is willing to raise her hand to take on any task, and reliably follows through. Jodi has a talent for listening to discussion, then offering well thought out and creative suggestions, which consistently benefits the programs committee.”
– Maggie Thornton, Westlake Consultants
