WELCOME TO OUR
kick off newsletter for the 2018-2019. The summer is flying. 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 responses
from you, our members. Thank you to all our members who
responded. Most important were your responses to our Survey
Monkey 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 this
year. 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 email@example.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 firstname.lastname@example.org or call Sandy Brenner 216-839-7288 for reservations.
