Happy Fall!

The Southwest Chapter is busy at work looking at how to better serve the chapter. At our recent Phoenix Educational Forum (at the beautiful Arizona Biltmore! ) the chapter leadership held its annual strategy and planning meeting. We worked through all of our goals for the remainder of this year and into next year. One of our topics was the annual Vegas Insights conference. Can you believe it will be the 34th!? We invited the leaders of the Northwest, Southeast and Southern California chapters to discuss the upcoming Vegas conference. It will be held at the fantastic Park MGM, Feb 26, 27 and 28th! We toured the property and know you will love it. We are also planning a small networking and education event one evening in Houston in the coming 4th qtr. More details to come. In efforts to serve more of the region, we plan to sprinkle some of these smaller events around. So look out, we may be coming to a city near you!

Now let’s talk about the Educational Forum. If you were able to attend, we hope you benefitted from the quality content, valuable networking and friendship. Our speakers included Mary Kay, CVS Health, Vrbo, Twitter, Labatt Breweries with Methodify, ServiceNow, Internet Research Bureau and Aperio Insights. What a great day it was! If you were not able to attend, pencil on the calendar during the first two weeks of August, the 2020 Educational Forum. Exact date and location yet to be planned but that’s typically when the event is held.

Want to get involved? If you are a hard-working, passionate insights person and feel the call of servicing others, the Southwest Chapter nominations for next year’s board will be held at the end of the year. If you would like to explore what it takes to run for a board position, reach out to Jeb Bullis @

Remember my personal note from the last Cactus Call about binging Game of Thrones? I did it! I finished all 8 seasons in four months.
