Great Member Experience.
Those words go back almost a year. They were the challenge I set out for our new Board at the first gathering last June.
And a challenge it was - no single person, no single idea, no single decision would achieve that goal alone.
Looking back, I see so many instances where an issue or opportunity was turned into a success by those who rose to this challenge.
I very much want to elaborate on those successes, but I will save that for the May General Meeting. I hope all of you plan to join us in the celebration of the Newcomers 2018-2019 year.
In the meantime, I would like to recognize those 57 people that pursued Great Member Experience this year.

This will be the last President's Post I have the privilege of composing. Certainly a bittersweet moment.
It truly has been a great experience for me to serve the Club this past year as President. Making new friends and working alongside such outstanding people who contributed to the experience of so many others - it doesn't get any better than that.
I thank each of you for the honor.
