A Message From Your President
Greetings from the President’s office!!
I have always wanted to say that!! This year as your local president, I am striving for change. We have done a few things differently, such as having our bowling tournament a full month earlier. I would like to thank the team that helped to make all this possible. Our Vice President, Rhonda Bartholomew, and her committee have done an EXCEPTIONAL job of putting together another successful bowling tournament/fundraiser. We were able to again, surpass last year’s funds raised to benefit our partner, MISTI Patient Fund. As a chapter we are continually trying to bring in great speakers to our meetings that will peek the curiosity of our membership as well as bring value to the entire membership, adding diversity in the different lines of business in our industry. We continue to try to increase our membership each year reaching out to agents that are not currently involved in our association and according to our local membership chair our membership numbers remain steady. Another change that was introduced this year has been a change in the venue of our general membership meetings. As of March, we will start meeting at Idaho Joe’s every third Thursday of each month, in their conference room. We hope the changes that are being made are positive changes for all!
A huge THANK YOU to all those who have served on our board this past year! Our local wouldn’t be successful without your hard work.
