What a Year!

What a year!  Although my term as Treasurer is coming to a close here real shortly, I’ll be continuing on as a member of the Chapter Assistance Training Team in 2015.  As most of you know, I learned a lot about Not-for-Profit 501(c)6 groups and that will continue to be a huge focus for the Texas Chapter in the coming year.

My experience as Treasurer has been interesting and challenging, and I am very glad that I had the opportunity to serve once again under our 2014 State President, Sharon Morton.  Sharon and I served together a few years ago…I was Sharon’s President Elect when she became Local Chapter President for Greater West Houston Chapter in 2009.  Cathy Mitchell (and Holly Kincaid) are two of the first WCR acquaintances that I made outside the local level, and I’ve known Ethel O’Dell since the beginning – these ladies are the epitome of what WCR is about – business relationships, referral sources, and lifelong friends.  Sylvia Seabolt…thanks for your knowledge, your assistance when I needed it, and your sense of humor!  Thank you all for joining me on this journey.  I am honored to have served with you all.
