Oh what a year!

Brenda Dempsey
Oh what a year! It has been my absolute pleasure and privilege to serve as your chapter President this past year – thank you to each one of you that volunteered their time and efforts to make our chapter more successful and relevant.

This has also been a year of great achievement – and it’s all because of you - our membership:

-    A record number of organizations sponsored our meetings and events providing the added revenue to invest in high quality educational content.
-    Record breaking attendance at our events and educational programs.
-    Improved communications via our chapter digital newsletter.
-    Recording of all educational programs so that our members in other areas have access to take advantage of our programming even when they cannot attend in person.
-    Our membership now tops over 550 members – an all-time high.

Thank you to everyone that sent me notes of encouragement and offers of assistance this past year – I am continually impressed with the number of people within our chapter willing to step up and lead – Jennifer Hicks your Incoming President is going to be amazing.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
