Well another year is ending. It seems like only yesterday that I began my term as the 2010 Athens Chapter WCR President. I can truly say it has been an honor to serve. I want to give a special thank you to the 2010 line officers and the committee chairs. I was really blessed to have such a fantastic leadership team this year. With their hard work and dedication, the Athens Chapter was able to once again get enough points for the 2010 Gold Award in Chapter Excellence, which will be awarded to our chapter in 2011.
A special thank you also goes out to all the members that sat on committees this year. We had some fantastic fundraisers, programs and speakers, newsletters, and membership growth. I thank you for your time and commitment to make this a wonderful year. If you haven’t already, please consider joining a committee for next year.
I would also like to thank our Realtor and Affiliate members that have supported our chapter throughout 2010. Without you we would not be the strong chapter we have become through the years. Thank you for your continued support. To our affiliates, please consider sponsoring next year! We wouldn’t be a chapter without you!
As this year comes to a close, I want to thank everyone who contributed to making WCR a success. As your 2010 President, I have learned and grown as a person, and I hope you have gotten value from WCR as well. We’ve made some great progress within our chapter; and I know our 2011 President, Sandra Russell, and her board will continue to bring our chapter, members, and guests, outstanding education programs, terrific speakers, and exciting fundraising events. I encourage all you to get involved with WCR and explore your own potential as an entrepreneurs and industry leaders. Thank you again for making 2010 a fantastic year. It has been my pleasure working with each one of you and I look forward to 2011 under the leadership of Sandra Russell. I wish everyone a happy holiday and a prosperous New Year.
