September/October 2017

President's Message

Recent keynote speakers at our chapter meetings focused upon sports themed presentations. Former Major League Baseball Commissioner Emeritus Allan “Bud” Selig presented at our August Chapter Special Meeting and described how Baseball is a “metaphor for life”. Now inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame, Mr. Selig discussed the need for “hope and faith” for baseball fans when following our favored team. With the Milwaukee Brewers still in the playoff chase, hope and faith in the Brewers has returned. Further discussion about always “doing the best thing for the game” can be adapted to our role in leadership in our organizations. Mr. Selig reflected on the social transformation of baseball and spoke about the importance of the late Jackie Robinson’s pivotal role in the sport and American society. The presentation was truly memorable.

Thanks to the efforts of the members and strategic partners listed in the right-hand column, we reached our goal of adding ten new members through the promotion offered by National in connection with the special summer luncheon event featuring Bud Selig, Commissioner Emeritus of Major League Baseball, on August 15, 2017. It was a very aggressive goal which we thought would be difficult to reach but these nine individuals made it happen!
