It has been an honor and a pleasure to serve as your chapter President this past year. The Portland Chapter has amazing members and I am proud to be part of this organization. We have had a few bumps over the year but with the amazing Board and a wonderful group of mentors we made it through. Thank you to all 2012/2013 Board members as well as Brett Hanft, CBA; Charlene Gothard; and Carol Johnson, ICCE; for helping me through. You all participated in a successful year by answering all my many questions and really being a sounding Board for me. We have some true mentors in our group and I am glad I had that support. I look forward to what Jeff has in store as the incoming chapter President and also serving as the Chairman of the Board for the coming year.
May is our Installation and Spring Auction. Please try to attend and support your incoming Board members and new chapter President, Jeffrey O’Banion. It is always inspiring and motivating to hear the incoming President's message and what they have planned for the next year. It is also fun to see what items are made available at the auction. Be sure to bring your donations as well as your pocketbook to support the Portland Chapter scholarship fund.
Credit Congress is also right around the corner. If you are attending this year please consider signing up for the CFDD National installation and awards luncheon to be held on Tuesday May 21. This is where all National Scholarships are awarded as well as the awards for individual chapters. Take advantage of everything Congress has to offer. I can’t wait to hear about it all in June.
