A Letter From Our President

I cannot believe it is Christmas. It seems like the years go faster and faster. I am thrilled with the response from each one for the BCAP Baskets. What a blessing you are!

Thank you for the committee chairs and their helpers for the committee Candyland activity. I hope you each learned something new and will be willing to help where your talents and interests allow. We heard some great suggestions for several committees.

Corporate sent out year-end invoices, so please get those taken care of by the end of January. I know we have several firms that have been posted and membership is working on getting the paperwork done to bring them in as new firms.

Please keep in mind, we are trying to communicate as much as possible through the Connect. So please take time to read it. It includes an RSVP link for the meeting, member postings, birthdays and monthly meeting highlights. If you don’t receive it, please contact Pam Taylor at ptaylor@dewberry.com or myself at tonya@clempire.com and we can get the issue resolved. We’ve had a couple ladies give us personal emails, due to email security measures blocking the email at their work.

Thank you again for making Tulsa a great chapter!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Tonya

BEST:

  • Wonderful venue on the fly and actually good location, parking and security.
     
  • Everything was yummy.
     
LEAST / OTHER:
  • Committee recruitment seemed unorganized, but the overall mission was accomplished.
     
  • It was a little chaotic trying to hear about every committee.
