A Welcome Statement from the SAM Flagler College Chapter Advisor

Welcome to the oldest continuous business club on campus. SAM was formed in 1983 and chartered by the SAM International Headquarters January 1, 1984. Our charter members included 85 of Flagler College ’s finest students at a time when Flagler College ’s enrollment was quite a bit smaller than the approximately 2700 students today. Over the past years SAM has had many accomplishments – 8 national management case team championships, winners of a number of outstanding chapters in the nation, the outstanding new chapter in the nation, and numerous outstanding SAM regional and national students in the nation awards.

We welcome all members to be part of the SAM legacy by collectively participating in our shared vision and reaching our goals of continuing what SAM stands for "increasing management skills and expertise through participation in programs and services designed to improve the professional quality of your  knowledge, performance, and ability".  SAM caters activities so members gain these necessary management skills needed for success in the workplace.

You are what makes SAM successful.  With your commitment and passion, we will continue what our forefathers established.  Thank you for joining our legacy.  We look forward to an outstanding year and in meeting each one of you. Please feel free to stop by my office and introduce yourself as a proud "SAM" member.  Together we can continue to make this club one that our College can be very proud of, while giving each one of you the opportunity to put your management skills to the test.
