Welcome students of Flagler College!
We have the wonderful opportunity to be members of the oldest management club in the country. What started in 1983 as a vision became reality on January 1, 1984 when SAM International Headquarters chartered our SAM chapter. As one of the most accomplished SAM chapters in the country, we have won an unprecedented 9 national management case team championships, numerous outstanding chapter awards, the Outstanding New Chapter in the Nation award, and several outstanding SAM regional and national student awards. The success of our chapter has resulted directly from the dedication and commitment of its members. Through their hard work we continue to give students the opportunity to gain real management experience for their future professions.
This year, we will be taking a different direction. We are having multiple speakers coming to talk to us about motivational, leadership and positive energy that addresses students' unique learning styles, cultivates independent thought, and promotes the building of character, enabling them to contribute to their communities in meaningful and positive ways. This opportunity will allow members to further develop their management and leadership skills through real world experience. We will also have many team building exercises concentrating more in managing events in teams.
SAM is passionate about giving back to the community. We are regular volunteers of Habitat for Humanity, public forums at Flagler College, and the Boys and Girls Club of St. Augustine. In addition, we are partnering with Take Stock in Children to host another workshop teaching high school student’s business etiquette.
I encourage all undergraduates to join SAM, regardless of major. SAM helps to improve the professional quality of your performance. Whether you dream of managing your own business or just want to gain a competitive edge in the workplace, our SAM chapter can help. This is a great opportunity for everyone to become better leaders and learn how to manage and communicate with others. I am looking forward to this upcoming year!
