President’s Message – December 2021
Well, there went another year that flew by! Yet here we are trying to balance work, shopping, and holiday social activities. Speaking of which, thanks to everyone that attended the Holiday Gala on December 7th and helped make it the epic event that it was. We had a great turnout and seemingly non-stop action. I wanted to give a BIG thanks to our Programs Committee Chair, Laura Campos, Section Secretary, Sarah Riffe, and Historian/Media Chair/MC (jack-of-all-trades!), Chris Rizzolo for their phenomenal efforts on organizing, notifying, decorating, and running this phenomenal event! And a special thanks to FES for their attendance and for helping to get the word out.
2022 is shaping up to be an active year for ASHE Central Florida, and we’ll be starting the year off strong. Our monthly Transportation Tuesday will be back in January (January 25th at Twisted Handle), and we will hold our first Transportation Summit in two years, scheduled for February 24th. We’ll also be holding various social and technical events throughout the year. Keep your eye open for email notifications.
I wanted to take this opportunity to ask for your involvement with a couple of our more prominent committees – Membership and Programs. These two committees are highly important to the Section, with a variety of involvement throughout the year. As a strictly volunteer organization, it is beneficial to have multiple people involved with these committees; even just coming up with event ideas, or handling one task can help. It’s a great way to develop lasting relationships with Board members, and to help support our industry. Please reach out to me (email@example.com), or any of our Board Members if you’d like to assist. It would make for a very beneficial New Year’s resolution!
I can’t leave 2021 without a bad joke!
How does one keep from spreading germs during the holidays? By using Santa-tizer!
