Summer is coming to a close and
graduations continue! Tallahassee, Bartow, and Eustis have
all hosted beautiful graduation ceremonies for our CPM’s and
in September, Naples will host the last graduation of 2016.
As I meet attend ceremonies and
meet with new graduates, I tell them about my story with
CPM. We have all been there – overwhelmed and leaning toward
hopelessness. CPM changed that for me – and I hope it has
changed that for hundreds of folks – even thousands. We have
more than 5500 CPM graduates in Florida. Just think of the
impact we can make if we use what we learned and “encourage
I also take time to thank their
families who have supported them throughout – especially
when homework had to be done evenings and weekends. I thank
their coworkers who endured 32 days without them while they
were in classes. I thank their bosses and point out how
marketable their newly certified employees are – after all,
the program is accredited in 38 states! And of course there
are others to thank – CPM office staff who do so much to
make this program amazing, CPM instructors who work
countless hours to ensure CPM candidates have great learning
transformations, their co-students, and of course – the
public we serve as they also support us in these efforts.
I talk with them about the one
remaining thing there is to do to ensure the CPM experience
stays with them. You all know this one – join FSCPM! I
encourage them (and everyone) to affiliate with a chapter so
they can be connected with a network of CPM’s. We are all
very obviously dedicated to continued learning and FSCPM
takes that mission seriously.
On October 13, our Suncoast
Chapter will host a full-day CPM symposium in Tampa! And on
November 1, our North Florida Chapter will host a full-day
symposium in Tallahassee! Please click on
