A Message from the President 2018

04 Jan 2018 10:10 AM | Ginger Ory (Administrator)

It’s hard to believe we have now flipped the calendar to 2018.  Seems we just moved into 2017.  2017 was a very busy and successful year but I think 2018 holds just as much opportunity for success.

We had a few Board members that were required to roll off at the end of 2017.  Kenny Anderson, Dr. Susan Eiland, and Don Lupo thank you for your service to the organization.  We are fortunate to have Pooja Chawla, Jaime Cifuentes and Carlene Osmer join the Board in 2018.  We appreciate your willingness to serve and look forward to your input.  Again there hasn’t been much downtime this year.  We participated in 15 different events throughout 2017 and several have already been solidified for 2018.  We will be partnering with Madison Police to host a Chasing the Dragon event at Bob Jones High School on March 1st.  I know you will want to be a part of this opportunity to bring awareness to the issue.  We are discussing an opportunity to be a part of another Chasing the Dragon event in Birmingham, our support of the Wellhouse and fight against Human Trafficking continues to be strengthened through Paul Franklin’s leadership and Uma has worked very hard to solidify a fundraiser night at Rojo in Birmingham on February 20th.  The February Board Meeting will be from 5:30-6pm that night at Rojo and afterward we will have a social opportunity while receiving 10% of all sales that night.  There are several other events that will be shared via email, the website and the Facebook page so I encourage you to request to be a member of the Facebook page if you have not already. 

Also, I would encourage each of you, whether on the Board or not, to find a way to plug in to the events and causes that our Citizen’s Academy are involved with.  Find a role that allows you to use your strengths.  Provide me with feedback on what you would like type after-dark events you would like to see us plan.  Attend a Board Meeting whether you are on the Board or not.  This organization is only as successful as you make it and we are fortunate to have some wonderful folks in our organization.  I appreciate your support.
