I started my career in the wedding industry back in 2002 when education and online groups for the industry were non-existent. Being a part of a group like the Certified Wedding Planner Society would have been a complete game changer for me! Top-notch education, real-life experience, a peer group that understands the struggle, and sneak peeks into software and tools that level up a company are what CWPS is all about. I've made it a personal mission to do what I can to elevate the wedding industry and being a promoter and huge cheerleader of CWPS helps get me there. Laurie Hartwell, CWPS CEO, embodies everything you want in a leader. She provides experience, empathy, creativity, positivity, professionalism, and kindness. Laurie has changed the lives of so many people including my own. It's an honor to call her a friend and I have so much respect for all she is doing to better the lives of everyone involved with CWPS!
I've had the privilege of knowing and working with Laurie since 2017. She's a beacon of integrity, light, and knowledge in our industry. I love the Certified Wedding Planner Society -- the amazing people who are its members and everything the community stands for.
I've seen so many times the profound value and impact of the education Laurie provides, and yet there's something even deeper and more wonderful about CWPS. There's an intangible, powerful, positive energy that the members get to share and savor... a sense of truly caring about, supporting, and inspiring each other while striving to be their best selves professionally and personally.
Thank you, Laurie. Thank you, CWPS. We appreciate you for being who you are and for all you do to elevate our industry.
