Happy Summer everyone! As I travel the state, I have heard from many members that their market has picked up and business is much more abundant than a year ago. With the changes in business, it now becomes more important to work together as a team to make sure all the network needs are met. Your nominating committee should be hard at work finding the best people to put on the nominating slate and your elections should be completed in a very short amount of time. Many of the President Elects just returned from Leadership Academy held in Chicago on Aug 3rd-5th. It was a terrific weekend and extremely informative, and the PEs are returning with lots of information to move the networks forward in 2013. We have now completed all 4 State Forums and I would like to congratulate all of you for the opportunities you created for the attendees to “Redefine their Success”. Each of the Forums was successful in presenting “now” programming while focusing on the education and networking that is so important to the Forums.
Our Fall meeting will take place in Anaheim on Sunday, Sept 30th & Monday, Oct 1st. We have terrific programs scheduled for you. Our State election will take place on Sunday afternoon, and our 2013 State Orientation will take place on Monday afternoon, which will be facilitated by Past National President, Ann DeFries.
I look forward to seeing you all at the end of September! Safe Travels!
— President Jamie
