President's Message


As part of the March/April President’s Report, acknowledging and thanking all the chapter leaders is in order as we transition our incumbent leaders and welcome newly elected leaders. The chapter leader roster has been adopted in accordance with the by-laws and we look forward to continued success driven by excellent chapter leadership. The chapter leaders are focused on adding value to our chapter members and strategic partners. The willingness to offer time and leadership on a volunteer basis is greatly appreciated and an essential element to the vitality of our chapter. We welcome those who have graciously stepped forward to help lead the chapter and encourage members to consider involvement in future chapter leadership. Please notify the executive committed if you have an interest in becoming active in a chapter leadership role.
