|A Letter From Our President
Colleagues and friends:
As I look forward to what is to come in 2020, I also reflect back on the work that was done in 2019. With that said, I’d like to thank Amy Schauer for her leadership while Chapter President this past year. Amy’s dedication to our profession, and our chapter, in particular, has positioned the AFP Greater Tri-State Chapter for unique and exciting growth opportunities in 2020. I personally credit and thank her for making my transition into the role of President a seamless and (almost) painless one! Amy will continue to serve on the AFP Board of Directors in 2020 in the role of Past President.
Additionally, I want to thank Sister Mary Ellen Green, Kelly Meyers, and Dennis Rima for their years of service to our chapter on our Board of Directors. Sr. Mary Ellen served for many years as Treasurer for our chapter and in June, she accepted an opportunity to continue her ministerial work in Northern Wisconsin. We wish her all the best! Kelly, who serves as Director of Philanthropy for the Dominican Sisters of Sinsinawa, served this past year as President-Elect after leading us as Chapter President in 2018. Dennis, who serves as the Director of Development at Clarity Clinic in Dubuque, leaves the board after several years. Kelly and Dennis remain highly active members of the Greater Tri-State Chapter. Thank you all again for your years of leadership on the AFP Greater Tri-State Board of Directors!
Looking forward now to 2020, I hope to see all of you at one or more of the many great education and networking events to be hosted by our Chapter in the coming year. Also, if I don’t already know you, I’d love to have the opportunity to do so. I invite you to connect with me on LinkedIn or send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and I’ll seek to make these connections as well.
Thank you all for making our chapter great and I wish you all the best in 2020!
