Broaden Your Horizon Social Media Contest

Broaden your horizon at this year’s SMPS SERC by meeting as many sponsors, exhibitors and speakers you can fit into the conference timeframe. This year, the SMPS SERC Communications Committee has developed an awesome way to network with this fun and interactive social media contest.

All SMPS SERC attendees can participate and win prizes!

HOW TO PARTICIPATE:

  1. Snap a selfie with either a sponsor, exhibitor or speaker – or all three! Look for their badge ribbons to identify them.

  2. Share your selfies on any (or all) social media networks – Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, or LinkedIn. Use the hashtag #SERChorizon and make sure your account/post is public. Private accounts cannot be counted.

  3. Take selfies with as many sponsors, exhibitors and speakers as you can. Each post with a picture and the hashtag gets you entered to win one of four prizes.

  4. All entry posts must be between 9am on Monday, March 18 and 9:30pm Tuesday, March 19 to be counted in the contest.

  5. Tune in at the Closing Lunch on Wednesday, March 20 for the prize drawing. The Grand Prize is a 2019 SMPS Build Business registration. Other prizes include a $100 and a $50 Amazon gift card.

THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND:

  1. You can NOT use other people’s pictures unless you’re in them too. Stolen images will be disqualified.

  2. Get to know our sponsors, exhibitors, and speakers! Follow them on social media once you meet them and stay updated.

  3. Post with the hashtag #SERChorizon between 9am Monday, March 18 and 9:30pm Tuesday, March 19 to be entered to win. Each post counts as one entry.

  4. Use the props at the “social media spots” to help you!

So, SERC, are you ready to BROADEN YOUR HORIZON with our 2019 challenge?

Let the games begin!

DO SOME GOOD AT THIS YEAR’S CONFERENCE

While you’re learning, networking, and meeting new people, do some good at this year’s SMPS Southeastern Regional Conference!

Thanks to all of our SMPS Southeastern Regional Conference (SERC) 2018 friends and colleagues who coordinated the inaugural year of Learning, Networking, and Giving Back by hosting a charity event to support homeless veterans in the Southeast with a toiletry drive for Stand Up for Stand Down. On the heels of that success that raised money and contributions for more than 200 “comfort bags” for veterans, SMPS SERC 2019 chose Levine Children’s Hospital in Charlotte for our charity sponsor event this year.

Whether your family is dealing with a child’s sudden, serious health concern or a chronic illness, families find superior care and support at Levine Children’s Hospital in the heart of the “Queen City.” Levine Children’s Hospital ensures excellence in children’s healthcare by building partnerships with caregivers, families and the community it serves. This partnership began long before the hospital opened its doors in 2007, when generous individuals, corporations and foundations stepped forward to help build this community hospital as a place of hope. This support continues today through volunteerism and generous contributions. Levine Children’s Hospital is proudly affiliated with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, an alliance of 170 children’s hospitals throughout the country. Locally in Charlotte, Children’s Miracle Network raises more than $3 million annually and 100 percent of the proceeds benefits Levine Children’s Hospital, Jeff Gordon Children’s Hospital and related facilities in the Carolinas.

Look for our charity table set up in the Laurel Registration Area. You can drop off cards or other items from the hospital’s donation wish listWe also have supplies set up for you to simply write a few words of encouragement in a collection of “get well” cards that will be delivered to children at the hospital next month.

OUR GOAL IS TO DONATE 250 CARDS

THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR SUPPORT
