This program will cover generational timelines/ages for Traditionalists, Baby Boomers, Generation X, Generation Y, and Generation Z individuals. In this program we will explore mindsets and information interpretations by era and style, communication terms, and points of view to achieve the objectives within the five generations, and assets each generation provides for problem solving and innovation in processes.

Hello CFDD Members,
This is my last newsletter to you as installation is just around the corner and I will be taking a Board position instead of an Officer’s position. These last two years have gone by fast. We have had some fun along the way, increased our value to our membership by increasing the amount of educational opportunities from six to eighteen, and varying the types of educational offerings available such as the Professional Development Retreat that we just completed this past weekend in Troutdale at McMenamin’s Edgefield.
A little over two years ago, we began looking at reinstating our Credit A to Z program and adding professional development to it. Many years ago there was a weekend CFDD retreat held at Marylhurst. With this as a model, we began developing our collections A-Z and professional development retreat. I wish to extend my heartfelt thanks to all of you on the committee and those of you who volunteered and gave the committee your support.

Also, a special thanks to Sheila Roames, CCE, National CFDD Chairman and Charlene Gothard, Area Representative, for their attendance and support.
Without all of you our retreat would not have been a success and while we do not have all of the final numbers in, it appears we should be able to increase the amount of scholarships that we can offer to our membership over the coming year.
Our next meeting is our installation meeting April 9, 2013, at Almost Home on Market Street in front of the Shilo Inn and across from the Red Lion. Along with installing our new Officers and Board we will be conducting our Spring Auction and raffling off our entertainment basket (it’s not too late to buy raffle tickets). Carol Johnson, ICCE, will be presenting our program: An interactive study on generational communications and achieving strategic objectives in the workplace. This is also the meeting that we encourage our members to bring a guest.
Thank you—it has been a privilege to serve as your chapter President these last two years.
