A new year is beginning for the Georgia Chapter and, as incoming president, I want to take this opportunity to thank the many chapter members that made the 2015-2016 year a success. First, I would like to thank all of the people that have been so active in supporting the chapter during the previous year, including members of the board, committee members, presenters, and all others who volunteered their time and efforts. I also want to thank all members who were involved in the just- finished Professional Development Conference in Atlanta. Members of the chapter did an excellent job in numerous roles, including greeters, tour hosts, and session moderators. I especially want to extend a personal thank you to everyone that participated in helping ASSE to prepare for the PDC. Finally, I would like to thank David Brani for his excellent leader as president during the year.
For the upcoming year, I want to challenge those who have been actively involved in the chapter to continue do so, and would encourage those who have not been active in the past to consider becoming more involved. Our chapter has always been one of the best, and we will be looking for ways we continue this tradition. If you have any ideas for ways of improving the chapter, please let one of the board members know. We will be looking for input on speakers and topics for our monthly meetings, community involvement and outreach, local technical and social networking opportunities, and any other suggestions you may have to make our chapter a truly platinum organization.
I look forward to working with all of our members, and if anyone has any questions, comments, or suggestions, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 404-266-4146.
