Time to move forward . . .
I’ve been President of the ACO for four years. As many of you know, I will be stepping down as of June 1st. It has truly been an educational journey and most fulfilling. I’m proud to say that the members of the Board I worked with made these four years a great experience. We worked hard to create the needed policies and procedures that strengthened this organization’s base. We were able to find ways to make our coaches visible in many avenues. We are more visible now than ever before, and I’m certain continued efforts will be made to broaden the reach by letting people know we are here to stay.
Volunteering has always been a big part of my life – sort of in my blood. From as far back as I can remember, I belonged to some group or organization that worked to improve our communities. Volunteering is as rewarding now as it has ever been.
And I would be remiss if I didn’t say “thank you”, to the members of this organization, for your continued support during these years. Your input and your suggestions from the many surveys you replied to, truly helped us make change and move forward. Much of that change is owed to you. Without you, the ACO would not exist.
Taking my place will be Tamara Rosier who will take this organization to the next level and she has the expertise needed to lead the ACO. I look forward to your leadership. Welcome, Tamara!
Although I am ready to step down, I will still be around doing what I love best – volunteering for the ACO. It has been my pleasure to serve you.
