I hereby deputize you to keep your meetings running smooth this year.  You as Parliamentarians and Presidents are in charge of the meetings….it's OK to use the gavel to regain order in your jurisdiction.

Let me start off by introducing myself…. My name is Cindy Umland and a members of the St. Cloud, MN chapter,  I joined in April 1998.  Some of you may have heard my name in the past as I have served on National a few times, my past positions are Extensions Director, Parliamentarian, Focus on Women and Chaplain, Programming Vice President, President Assistant, Personal Development/STEP and last year as Membership VP.  I'm excited to continue serving and learning more and more about this organization.  This year I'm also serving as Chapter State Delegate and Minnesota Living & Learning State Program Manger in Minnesota( I will be promoting certifications and encourage members to Be You and Believe in Yourself.

Well you may be asking what do I do for a job??? I work as a Customer Service Specialist at Shopko in St. Cloud and I have been with them for 25 years, I also work part time at Office Depot as a cashier.   If I'm not working or volunteering with Women of Today I enjoy spending time with my folk and my niece and nephew who are 13 and 11.  Some of my hobbies have been and do occasionally get to do are making cards, counted cross=stitch and playing cards.

This year when I was thinking of a theme I realized I really enjoyed the country theme and my pink cowboy hat…so its back!!! My theme is Parli Rules Country Style. 

I believe as Parliamentarians and presidents it's up to you to make sure the meeting runs smooth and we together can make it happen. 

This year my plan is to offer different challenges these are open to State Presidents, State Parliamentarians and Chapter Parliamentarians so please share them, and take time to participate.

Let's have a HOWDEE good time, ya'all

Your Parliamentarian
