Local Events & Things to
It appears that we are going to get through another Arizona summer in record time!
An important event this summer is that my husband Paul has retired after over 30 years in retail. We are looking forward to figuring out what one does in “life after work” - something many of you have already done and hopefully will share with us. We know that Newcomers can make a difference especially with the many men's activities!
Among my favorite summer light reading is “Oprah” magazine - a recent article is titled “Do You Follow?” A business Instructor recognized that her students were so impressive that she decided to follow rather than attempt to lead them. Hence she took a suggestion box to class with the label “Feedback and Recommendations” in order to learn from their experiences and observations.
We also seek input from our "impressive" membership - positive or negative - to help us do better. Be sure to include a suggestion about how we can improve along with any negative comment. Send to “Contact Us” found in the menu bar at the top of this website or place in the suggestion box at the fall luncheons.
This year’s Board and Team are doing a great job of leading through challenging changes, but for most their commitment will be completed the end of March. A Nominating Committee will begin looking for next year’s officers as early as September and October.
We have a very talented membership of over 350 members plus spouses and need 10+ “new" leaders in order for our Club to continue to prosper. (Note that leadership can include spouses and part-timers.)
So when you provide "Feedback and Recommendations", consider volunteering to lead or recommending someone else in the Club.
Looking forward to your feedback,
Carolyn White, President
