Trip to Ames

On Thursday night, I left Sioux City around 6 and headed to Ames, Iowa with 4 fellow SCGO members – – Mandie Norby, Beth Trejo, Matt Campbell and Greg Hoffman.  We met up with Jon Murad, who got there a little earlier.  We got to the hotel around 8:30 and headed to the bar by 9:00.  Ate dinner and enjoyed 2 for 1’s.  Great conversation all night….

Friday all day we were in a YPIowa Conference with the other YP Leaders from around the state.  Wish there may have a few more groups represented at the conference.  But, I did gain a couple of tips that I would pass onto the Membership Chair (VP of SCGO) and the Civics Chair.  I got to enjoy lunch with the CEO of a physician owned hospital from Marshalltown, IA.  He had some great advice – – one quote he had heard was “customers always come 2nd”.  This is because employees should come first.  If you treat your employees good, they will give that respect to your customers.  One of the other CEO’s, the Iowa State Alumni Director said “let this YP phase be one phase of your life.  Look forward to the next phase of your life”.  Great advice as I look forward to giving up my position on the YPIowa board and focusing more on helping kids through foster parents.

One nice thing that YPIowa did was recognize me for my 2 years as President and in organizing the start of the group.  They gave me a poster to get framed that says “Why I chose Iowa”.  It will look great right next to my Husker Fan sign in my office.

The afternoon Job Ambassador part of the day did not go as smooth.  More to work on with that.

The drive home was a little longer cause I was STARVING!  But, great conversation with a good bunch of friends.
