President's Corner

It is amazing how fast 2018 went.  Here we are in the holiday season already and some pretty solid plans for 2019 are already on the books. We are sorry to cancel the last months luncheon due to weather however with only 15 registered as of the date plus knowing some of those would not make it due to school closures or travel issues we thought it best to request our speaker to join us early next year.

It has been a honor to serve you as your president this year and as we usher in our 2019 board I am even more excited about our continued progress to better serve our membership.  With Rachael Phillips, our resident millennial, at the helm along with our more seasoned board members I am very optimistic about more progress and success in serving our group.   I would like to thank the board for all their hard work again this year making it a successful year.  

Please continue sending us any recommendations for speakers for the PDC in March of 2019 as now is the time we are locking in your suggestions and scheduling.  

Remember that all of this info can be found on our new website at

Wish everyone a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukah or what ever you celebrate this season,  


Richard C. A. Shoaf
