Dear Chapter Members and Friends,
As we start this new fiscal year, I would like to say thank you to our executive board and all of our committee chairs and members who have done such a great job in serving our chapter. I am so excited about the prospects for the future. Some primary goals that we are focusing on are as follows:
1) Outreach/Inclusion – This will entail making a concerted effort to involve all of our members and non-members in ways that will be of overall benefit to our chapter.
2) Young & New Professionals – Another goal is to start a committee on the chapter level for this group. In addition to planning their own activities, I envision this group playing a more active role in our chapter functions and conferences. Discussions are already underway. Stay tuned!
3) Education – Education is the essence of this entire organization. We are currently working on course offerings and could really use your help in letting us know what courses you need. Please communicate your needs to your chapter leadership so that we can do our best to present course offerings that meet your educational goals.
It is my pleasure to be of service to this great chapter. I look forward to seeing you at our future events and being even more involved. And, in the spirt of these words so artfully put by this great poet, Ralph Waldo Emerson, I choose this as our motto:
Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.
