Greetings to my Fellow Members!
Writing my first President’s message is a bit overwhelming for me. I became a court reporter to sit and listen to everyone else speak. Speaking and writing are not my forte, as you will soon learn. I am happy to have this opportunity though to help lead our association to new ground. And with all of y’all’s help, I know it will be a great year.
I want to thank Brenda Hein for the exceptional job she did in the past year as president, as well as all the officers. I also want to thank Stefanie Newton, the editor-in-chief of our Newsletter. She has done an outstanding job and has gone over and above what has been expected of her….which brings me to the Newsletter. Stefanie has decided it would be a good time to transition out of her voluntary position, (which she has held for 8 years) and try some new things. I had a very informative meeting with her and she had many, many good ideas and suggestions. So the next few months we will be revamping our website and newsletter. We hope to make this a bit more up-to-date and informative as to the goings-on of our association.
Many of you have given me some great ideas and suggestions for things in the next year. I thank you for that. We are now in a position to put those great ideas to work! We will be changing meeting places, offering more CE hours in the form of meetings and maybe a seminar or two, and having some social events so we may be able to interact and network with our fellow members. We have also been invited to share time with our sister association, DCRA.
Please feel free to call, email, text, send a carrier pigeon, anything to contact me and let me know what you would like to see in the upcoming year or any suggestions you might have. I know we have an exciting year ahead of us, so let’s have fun!
