A Note from Your
2011-2012 SCC President
Planning is well along for an exciting and informative fall program for the Salem City Club.  Both the Board and the Program Committee have been active this summer.  This fall will feature a series of presentations on the economy, in addition to our customary hosting of political and community-based programs and speakers.  Stay tuned for more detailed information as we move ahead in the next few weeks.
            We have a talented and hard-working group of people planning for this year.  Under the leadership of Bob Martin, fall scheduling is virtually complete; and with the first-ever regular legislative session in even-numbered years, along with an upcoming presidential year election cycle, there is no shortage of intriguing possibilities as scheduling continues for programs for next spring.  We are again using the able assistance of Spire Management in handling the many day-to-day tasks of scheduling and public relations that keep the City Club operating efficiently.
            All Board members invite any and all of you to offer feedback and better yet, to get involved in the operations of your City Club.  In our efforts to get more people involved and also to streamline the operations, there are opportunities for volunteer activity contributions.  We welcome your inquiries if you have the time and the inclination – and in any case, we may be contacting you!
I’m excited and honored to serve as Salem City Club President for this upcoming year, and anticipate many enjoyable and informative learning experiences.
Russ Beaton
