Words from the Prez:

Have you ever seen such crazy weather? One day the temperature is in the 70’s and the next day it is in the 20’s. The ups and downs in the temperature reminds me of our membership and getting people involved in our association. Sometimes our membership goes up, and our voice gets stronger. Other times, our membership goes down, and our voice becomes weaker.

My point is that people want the benefits without being a member or being involved. Before I

became an officer, I knew literally nothing about our association, local, state or national. It was by becoming involved and people mentoring me that I found out all our association has to offer. We are looking for people to become involved, to voice their opinions and help us be the strong local that we are meant to be.

Soon it will be time to find a president-elect for the next school year. I know people are going to say they don’t have the time, but I found that being an officer is not only rewarding but it didn’t take as much time as I thought. Please consider finding a way to become involved, we would love to have each and every one of you.

Kelli Bryant

BEA President
