I stepped into 2021 with excitement and trepidation. Despite some setbacks, the chapter rose to the challenges. Like Henry Ford said, “if everyone is moving forward, then success takes care of itself.”
As I look back, I am amazed at the awesome team that made it all happen: to Faith and Addison, without whom we would have no succession in place; to Jennifer, who keeps the chapter affairs running smoothly; to Agnes and Donna, who managed a successful mentorship program; to Lacey, who keeps our finances running; to Bob and Shawn, who win sponsors; to Timothy and Oren for their unconditional support of our chapter and the mentorship program; and most of all to Celeste, without whom there would be no digital presence. To each one of you, my deepest gratitude.
A special thank you to Karen for coordinating our September workshop. We had a great turnout.
I am thrilled to welcome Ashley as our news Social Media Chair for 2022.
I would also like to extend my gratitude to our mentors for investing their time and sharing their experience with our mentees. To the mentees, congratulations on your successful completion of the program. We hope you will join us and advance our profession to improved and better heights.
It is unbelievable that, literally, in the blink of an eye, this year is coming to a close. It has been an amazing ride. I hope you can look back on this year and celebrate with me in person at our holiday meeting on December 14th. We will close our elections and welcome our new leadership team and the board of directors.
The upcoming year is going to be a promising one; of that I am certain.
