President's Corner

July 2018

Chapter President


Hope you all had a great 4th of July. I can’t believe summer 2018 is already here!

So far, we’ve had a busy and exciting year, which consisted of seven business meetings, four educational seminars, a roundtable luncheon, EDSymposium18 recap luncheon, and a membership drive/paint night at Brushstrokes in old town Tustin. And to top that off, a few of us were able to attend EDS18 in Salt Lake City, Utah. As usual, it was both educational and fun, and we walked away with a wealth of ideas and information that we shared at the EDS18 recap luncheon. I can’t wait to attend again next year in Spokane, WA.

I hope everyone had the chance to see the great video on July 2, 2018, via the SDA Weekly Digest from our new National President, Susan Lankey and her side kick Oakie. She’s a real go getter and I support her agenda.

Our ExCom Liaison, National President-Elect Brooke Simcik, sent me a nice “just checking in” email, which included a great book suggestion that I’ve ordered through Amazon and would be happy to share with anyone 'The FIVE Dysfunctions of a TEAM' by Patrick Lencioni.

I look forward to seeing everyone at the chapter’s 35th Anniversary Celebration and Membership Drive on August 16, 2018 at the Orange Coast Winery in Costa Mesa.

Enjoy the rest of your summer!
