I've Got Spirit! How About You?

    A couple of days ago, I attended the annual meeting for the Fashion Group International.  During these meetings, President, Margaret Hayes recaps the year, committee chairs speak and we sip wine and socialize.  To my surprise, I was the recipient of the "Spirit Of Volunteerism" Award!  FGI is a wonderful association and I am happy to donate my time and my writing skills to their Publications Committee, plus I get to attend really interesting and informative events.  And fashionable ones too!

    If you're not familiar with the Fashion Group, it's a non-profit organization aiming to help its members become more effective in their careers.  Membership has its perks and I would encourage anyone with an interest in fashion to join.

    Goals of the organization as listed on their website are:

    • To advance professionalism in fashion and its related lifestyle industries.
    • To provide a public forum for examination of important, contemporary issues in the business of fashion.
    • To present timely information regarding national and global trends that have an effect on the fashion industries.
    • To attain greater recognition of men’s and women’s achievements in business.
    • To encourage men and women to seek career opportunities in fashion and related industries.
    • To provide activities and programs which enhance networking skills and encourage interpersonal contacts so as to further the professional, social and personal development of members.
