B-CS Chapter Members,
It’s May and another year is just about complete. It has been an exciting year working with all of you and striving to reach the goal’s set at the start of the year. One goal was to have an ending bank balance of $10,000 + by June 30, 2013. This looks very favorable at this time. We have also met the requirements to receive Chapter of Excellence again for 2012-2013. We have recruited several members from outside Texas A&M University as well as several from Texas A&M. We have sent in a bid to host the 2015 Texas Louisiana Division Annual Meeting and will find out who will receive the bid at the T/L Division Annual meeting in Austin this month. We held a very successful APD conference 2013 and our committees were all outstanding.
I want to thank each and every member that has served on a committee or served as a committee chair. Each of you did an excellent job. I also want to thank each officer for their dedication to upholding their office. Finally I want to thank each member for making our Bryan College Station Chapter of IAAP the truly outstanding chapter that it is.
For those of you who were courageous enough to present at one of our chapter meetings, I take my hat off to you. Each of you did a wonderful job and I hope that it was a growing experience for you.
We have a new slate of incoming officer this year that will be presented for election at our May chapter meeting. I encourage you to work with them and I know that they will bring some new and exciting ideas to the chapter.
My main focus this year was to make our chapter a place where each member could grow, feel welcome and accepted and extend this to other around them. I have seen a lot of new growth in our chapter members and I want to stress how important it is to become active in the chapter.
I am wishing each and every one of you faith to believe in yourself and those around you, peace in time of turmoil, a wonderful joy for living, and love both received and shared. All the best to each you in 2013-2014
From your President 2012-2013,
Jan McCoy CAP/OM
