Message from the President

Ernie Brass 2017-18WELCOME TO OUR
kick off newsletter for the 2018-2019. The summer is flying by. The board has been working hard in July planning this year’s activities.

We ended last year on a positive note. Received gold medals in the Newsletter and Website competitions in the Warner Division. We tried some new forms of communications, a Monkey Chimp email and a Survey Monkey. Both got positive responsesfrom you, our members. Thank you to all our members who responded. Most important were your responses to our SurveyMonkey questionnaire. You confirmed the board’s decision to expand ournumber of technical meetings with some old as well as new topics. We are expanding the number of meetings to eight. We will be moving our chapter meetings around this next year - one each at Case Western Reserve and at John Carroll.  We are looking for a new place to hold our other meetings but will keep them on Tuesday.We will announce the new location in our newsletter and website.We have gotten one new and one old board member to join us thisyear. We are still looking for more board members and based on your interest from the survey there are several of you members that would like to become active members of the board. Please contact me directly at bcd_net@yahoo.com or call me at 216-598-1952. Several of you expressed interest in working in the community service area (including Volunteer Income Tax and Student Liaison) and the program planning area.

In the student area, we have 2 chapters now, Hiram and John Carroll, and plan to add one more this fall, CASE and Notre Dame. If you are an alumnus of one of those schools, your help would be appreciated. Our National office has already done most of the work to make working together process relatively easy. We have a National Student Leadership conference every November. We had 12 student members attend last year.

We hope to see you and your significant other at our August meeting at The Rock & Roll Hall Wednesday, August 22th at 5:30 PM. This will be a joint meeting with the Cleveland and Akron chapters. Student members are invited - their cost is $10.00. Register online or contact Sandy Brenner 216-839-7288. Click here to RSVP.
