What a great golf event we had on April 26th!  The weather was perfect and seeing all our chapter members, sponsors, and guests made the day even better. I saw a lot of familiar faces and some new faces.

Our membership numbers continue to grow. I feel that is a testament to the community that we’ve built and the powerful network we have.

Also the chapter is in great hands next year. I’m excited about the upcoming strategic planning retreat on May 18th and 19th and hearing what the 2023-2024 leadership team has in mind for next year. The feedback you provided on our annual survey will help guide the direction of the chapter for years to come.

If you want to be a part of the planning process and help move the chapter forward, please consider joining a committee. The minimum time commitment is one hour per month, and you can take on tasks and challenges as your availability permits. Please reach out to anyone on the Board or the committee chairs to learn more about how you can contribute to the success of the chapter and deepen the connections you have within the chapter.
