Letter From The President
Can you believe it? We have already begun the final quarter of the current administrative year! Where has the time gone? Now is the time to review our “to do” list for the year, laser sharpen our focus to accomplish our goals and close out the year Exchange Strong! Your District Leadership Team is working hard to insure an enjoyable and inspiring District Convention so mark your calendars for June 11th and 12th with some fun activities the Friday night before at Dave and Buster’s. We’ll then quickly gear up to put our best foot forward as we welcome Exchangites from all over the country to the 98th National Convention right in our own backyard!
As we close out the current year and set our plans for next year, let’s keep our powerful momentum going! We’ve built 2 clubs in the District so far this year and although a couple more look like they won’t occur until next year, your leadership team is ready to execute quickly if you have any ideas that can still get under the wire for the current year.
I received my copy of Exchange Today in the mail recently and it is chock full of good stuff! How to report programs of service and officers is a timely article as “the job is not complete until the paperwork is done”. I am still soliciting nominations for “Exchangite of the Year” and “All American Volunteer”. Isn’t there an Exchangite you know whose efforts should be honored and recognized in this meaningful way? Some great fundraising ideas for kids and families might get your creative thoughts flowing as well.
Finally, April is “National Child Abuse Awareness” month and there are some great tips and articles that remind us about out National Project.
Finally, I want to thank each of you for all you have done to embrace our mission of making our communities better places to live, work and raise families. Our district could not be the success it is without the efforts of each and every one of you and I am in awe of your spirit and enthusiasm!
