JULY 2022

From Your Executive Director

We all know the importance of creating a plan to reach stated goals. Even the most workable strategy can get lost in day to day demands. Now that we are halfway through the year, there is no better time to check in and determine how to reengage with strategies to help reach your objectives. We hope to provide some resources to support your planning and delivery in the coming months. 

Our annual Refuel series scheduled this October, is designed to bring new energy and ideas during short and dynamic lunch-time presentations. Each day you will hear new ideas and applications for what’s what’s. See below for registration details.

Below you will also find a few ready-to-go social media images that may inspire you, our supplier partner spotlight, and highlights on PG members making headlines. And as always, we have a few giveaways.

Are you celebrating a work anniversary? Did someone in your organization win an industry award? We want to know all about it! Tell us about your good news here and we will share it in an upcoming issue.

If you haven’t already, I encourage you to share this email with others on your sales team and ask them to subscribe so they can be up to date with all things PG (there may be free stuff for doing so).

Q: If you had to eat one meal, everyday for the rest of your life, what would it be? Why?

A: Pasta and red sauce (homemade preferred) with parmesan cheese, and I don't care what anyone says, pasta shape matters! The medium shells get sauce and cheese stuck in the middle, makes a perfect bite every time.

Q: What's your motto or personal mantra?

A: 'This too shall pass'. We all go through trials and tribulations in life - hard times that can be so easy to get stuck in. When I'm having one of those moments or days, I stop and think, by this time tomorrow it will be better. It's important to remind yourself that you've already survived every difficult moment that life has presented to you thus far. It's a good motto that encourages self reflection and reminds me to be grateful for all the beautiful blessings in my life.

Q: Any upcoming events/news you want to share from your company with our network?

A: Gemline is in this tremendous state of growth and I truly feel lucky to be working for a company that seems to be making all the right business decisions in response to what's happening in the world and the market place – standard production lead time AND FastTrack services up and running, launching sustainable products, partnering with brands that give back, focusing on corporate social responsibility, removing PVC from our product line, deep inventory across key categories and products, strong supply chain, investment in our people, and so much more! There is an abundance of positive things happening at Gemline right now, and more to come. I feel very strong and confident that we will be able to deliver exceptional customer service and product solutions as we head into the busy holiday season.
