President's Message

November 1, 2018


This is my favorite time of the year!  I love the changing colors of the leaves, the smell in the air and the change in wardrobe to fall fashions.  It’s also a great time to start thinking about how and what we want in the new year and how we can become more productive and focused.  As we look to innovate and create a more defined strategy, we should keep in mind those around us who can help us achieve our common goals.  Every boss started as a worker.  “Management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right things.” – Peter F Drucker.


Craig Franke with Goldleaf Partners will be presenting at our November 15 meeting.
