President's Messages

September 7, 2017

As a new member and the brand-new President, I would like to extend my hand to each and every member. Whether it’s your first meeting or you have been at every meeting since inception, I would like to meet you. I may not remember everyone's name, but thankfully we have name tags! So please stop by and say hello!

I am sure some members that have been here a while might have some thoughts and hopefully some new ideas! I am looking forward to hearing them! Please call me, email me or come and talk to me and let me know what they are. I’ll be
happy to hear from you.

We are in dire need of assistance. I cannot stress enough that this club cannot run itself. Although it basically does just that, we still need volunteers to help the continuity of this club. Now you might be saying to yourself why volunteer? I’m
going to say back to you why not? Your help is desperately needed. As I was in one of the first board meetings the other day the comment was made that it’s the same few members always doing things. Isn’t that how it always is? Everywhere? I would love to be able to offer you something for your volunteerism, but the best that I can do is say thank you for any help you could possibly give. We have in excess of 500 members and in order to keep the club moving forward and in the right direction we are truly in need of your help. Please consider doing something, anything. We need
a tech person. That’s something as simple as just coming for the meeting and helping us get our technical issues underway for the presentations that guest speakers bring. Also, we need a couple of people to help out with events and
hospitality (yes nametags) can you hand out name tags and put them back in alphabetical order? Some of these positions are not hard and if you aren’t sure how to do them, we are here to help you.

I cannot say thank you enough to our board members. Without them I would be lost as to what to do and when to do it.

Listed here are your new board members please welcome them and most of all please help them.
