Message from the President

January 2020 President’s Message

Chapter 74 Minutes,

I hope that you were able to take some time away from work and enjoy the holidays with family and friends! And, maybe even a little time for yourself!

Please know that our chapter officers and committee members are working diligently to bring value and benefits to each of us. We are always looking for new energy, so please reach out to me or any of the officers if you are looking for ways to get involved. Specifically, we are looking for volunteers to plan the joint Appraisal Institute/ IRWA Chapter 74 luncheon scheduled for June.

Please contact Cathy Thomas at [email protected] to explore this opportunity.

Our Chapter is well on our way to meet our goals for the 2019-2020 year. We approved the updated bylaws to be consistent with International’s bylaws in November and had an awesome Holiday Celebration in December. We have several classes planned in the coming months and we added several new members in the last few months.

Kimberly McClung will be our featured speaker at the January Luncheon. The topic is Best Practices for Agent providing Condemnation Support Services in Texas and I have no doubt that we will all learn much from her presentation. If that’s not enough to entice you to attend, the winner of the drawing for the free membership at the Holiday Celebration donated it back for drawing at the January luncheon.

Remember — the free annual conference registration, along with a $1,000 travel allowance, will be awarded by randomly drawing from the members present at our February membership luncheon.

Please get your nominations in for Employer, Professional and Young Professional of the year by the end of January.

Lori Bible, SR/WA
