How many of you can say that you have 2,600 friends? I can and actually, all you can too! Being a member of SPIN is more than professional education, it’s a network of senior-level planners all speaking the same language and passionate about the hospitality industry.
Am I saying that you will call these 2,600 people sharing all your secrets? No, but what I can promise is that our members are dealing with the very same challenges as you. SPIN has uniquely cultivated communities’ where members can share ideas, seek advice, hire a planner, and learn new ways of doing things.
My advice: Get involved! Network! Become an active member! I’ve been volunteering as the Director of Membership for two years now. The opportunities and support that I have encountered is awesome. I’ve met some really great people that I may have otherwise not had access to, received support and first-rate advice when launching my business, was hired to partner with a SPIN member on a job opportunity, and am continuously soaking in the information that I learn from the members of the monthly SPIN Mastermind group I joined. I owe a lot of my success this past year to SPIN. SPIN provides many ways for you to get involved, take advantage of your instant network.
