Lou, your dedication to the Chapter over the past 2 years as President was selfless and wonderfully executed.  You made all feel welcome, appreciated, and the chapter flourished under your care…..I have very big shoes to fill.  Thank-You Lou!  I can’t talk about this volunteer team without acknowledging its back-bone, Kathie Stapleton our Executive Director.  Kathie makes it all come together, stay on time, on task, and positive.  I’m delighted to have the opportunity to continue our work together and to call you a friend.


As we launch this 2013 Blog, I would like to thank our new marketing team lead by Lori O’Connell - Agency O’C, Noah Parks – Leadgenix, Sam Conley – HeBS Digital, and Noelle Barnes - Appnostic.  This effort is yet another step to stay current for our almost 500 members.  We hope that you find this tool valuable and I look forward to your feedback.  Over the coming year, I will turn the blog over to our speakers, board members and our evolving new chapter advisory board.  Stay tuned …. get involved, grow, learn, and share!


We will work hard as a team to provide the best in education, networking and do not forget fundraising.  For 2013, I’m very happy to announce we will continue to support Hope Lodge New York, an American Cancer Society Center offering lodging at no cost for cancer patients being treated in Manhattan.


Let’s have a great year together!!
