JM Web Designs’ Marketing Director Appointed President of Local BNI Chapter

Originally posted at JM Web Designs.

Phil Stalnaker was recently appointed as President of his local Business Networking International [BNI] Chapter, Network Connections.  Since joining the chapter in October of 2008, he has shown advanced leadership through superior performance, high commitment to attendance, and a marked desire to go above and beyond his expectations.

BNI is a member group with one member per industry allowed per chapter in order to eliminate competition.  This is a structured group with their focus on “Givers Gain”, which means that you are expected to give to all members in the group, which in turn means that you will receive from all members of the group.

“I am excited to take my turn as leader of such a great group of people.  Their commitment to each other and the group as a whole will make my tenure as President fun and rewarding.”  Phil has committed to a one year stint as President and will be evaluated on the number of members and quality of referrals passed back and forth.  Since serving as the chapter’s Educational Coordinator (he began that role in January of 2009), he feels that he has been allowed to step into the Presidency easily, with significant time to learn his responsibilities.

Omaha’s Best Dressed Nominee | Phil Stalnaker

Though he is marketing director for JM Web Designs, Phil Stalnaker wears many hats.  His roles include networking, business development, human resources, marketing, and sales.  He believes this is only possible by having such a great team of people around him, not only at JM, but also around Omaha through the numerous networking groups with which he is involved.  He earned a Masters’ Degree in 2007 in Business Management and has been given leadership positions in the Omaha Chamber of Commerce, his BNI Chapter, and the Sarpy Chamber of Commerce.

When Phil is not out networking, he is spending time with his wife, Nita.  They got married in the summer of 2008 and are enjoying each day together.  He is also active in his church, Steadfast Bible Fellowship, and loves to travel – especially if it includes Atlanta Braves Baseball.

Omaha Skyline Photo Makes it to National Magazine

Friends, I just wanted to share a photo of mine that made it all the way to Businessweek Magazine! Below is the text of the original email I was sent as notification. The image itself was part of a photo shoot I did in February with a friend of mine, Larry. There were ice chunks floating in the river below us. It was NASTY cold, but we persevered and ended up with some great shots.

Wanted to share with you that one of your photos made into business week!

Also, I wanted to see if you ever got paid for the last photo we purchased. I’m worried I forgot to turn the invoice in…I stumbled on the email when I was searching for your address.
