A Message From The President

Bill Foster

To the Members of Southwest Florida Chapter and Friends,
Welcome to the beginning of fiscal year 2017-18!  The Board of Governors had our first meeting June 6 at the Lee County Clerk's office to begin the plan of continuing education for the new year. On July 8, we will again be hosting the District Meeting at Holiday Inn, Alico Road, with Darren Cassels, our District Representative.  I'm sure Darren will have some great information for us, as always. Once the District Meeting concludes, we will have the July Governors' meeting immediately following.  Both of these meetings are open to all, and we encourage your attendance.
Thanks again to the great work of your Chapter, we again earned Sapphire Status!  It is my honor to be your President for this year.  I'm looking forward to working with your other volunteer leaders to keep the tradition of quality, relevant and affordable continuing education for our members and others in the Southwest Florida area.  Your Board is looking at some new ideas this year to make the year more relevant and accessible.  Just like a good audit report is supposed to add value and improve operations, please feel free to contact me or any of the Officers and Board Members to offer your suggestions, and comments how we can add more value and make the operations of your Chapter even better.  We always encourage you to bring new colleagues to our events, and get involved to keep our events as good as they can be.
On behalf of the Board of Governors and Chapter Officers, thank you for being a member of the Southwest Florida Chapter and profession.    
With my Regards,
Bill Foster
President – Southwest Florida Chapter #226 2017-18
