President's Message

First, I want to thank our many members who took the time to fill out the recent Chapter membership survey, one of our highest response rates ever.

With that in mind, my December President’s Message is a “top ten list” for our members, providing a look back at some Chapter accomplishments this past year.

10. Chapter dues remain unchanged for the 16th year in a row. Member dues account for only about 14% of our total $1.7 million annual budget, which allows us to provide more benefits to members without raising dues. [Read more]
