Let me begin by saying Thank You to past President Leah Fulmer for putting together such a wonderful 2016 workshop. I would also like to thank everyone who attended the workshop. We had over 100 people attend which was a large increase from last year. It was a great turnout and we hope to have an even better turn out next year.
I would like to say I am both proud and humbled to have recently been elected to serve as president of this amazing organization. I am looking forward to working with all of you in the upcoming year.
At the recent workshop we elected a new 2nd Vice President and Secretary to the board. We also added new people to the committees. We are looking forward to working with all of you to ensure we have a great year of training and classes. We worked on a new design for t-shirts which will be available at upcoming training sessions. We expressed the need for membership participation and I encourage anyone interested in serving to contact any elected member of our APCO chapter. All of the contact information is available on the website.
My goal as President of our APCO chapter is not only to reach out to current APCO members but also recruit new members who are interested in serving in an elected position. By working together, I am confident that we can all greatly benefit each other as well as the entire Alabama Chapter of APCO.
Thank you for your membership and support. We promise to continue offering the best training available and to serving our membership.
Linda Owens, President of the Alabama Chapter of APCO
