PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE - April / May 2022
Happy spring team! Hope everyone is doing great as we gear up for our April lunch meeting. I look forward to seeing everyone there on 9 April and sincerely hope that this little note finds everyone in good health and spirits.
If you were not at the last lunch, I have a bit of gouge and some changes that are coming down the pike that might have some people talking, so let me set the record straight. As you know we have been trying to recruit new folks to assist in running both the foundation and the chapter. The good news is we will have some “new blood” coming in by late spring and summer. The bad news is we have had to make some executive decisions based on our lack of horsepower. Decision one is we will be going to an electronic Border Bulletin. This means that we will no longer be incurring the cost of printing and mailing but the downside is you will need a computer and email address to gain access to the Bulletin. Read More
