Letter from the President November, 2014

Posted by on 21 November 2014 | 2 Comments

Hello fellow EM NARI members.

Looking back on this year I am amazed at how far we have come as a chapter.  With Thanksgiving and the holidays right around the corner, I truly believe the hard work from our members and staff has positioned us for a great 2015.

The monthly meetings have regained the vibrancy of years’ past. I hear from our long-time members, and past Presidents that they are pleased with the path the chapter is on. One past President commented there is a special, positive vibe in the room when we meet; it is great to come back. 

The committee chairs and their teams have spent countless hours to come up with great programs and excellent speakers.  Our vendors have stepped up to the plate and support us with their generous sponsorships and the use of their facilities and resources.

What we are now experiencing is a group that is coming together defining our future.  

At this time to be thankful, I am grateful for…..

  • The way our contractor and vendor members stepped up to the plate to complete the Agganis Arena project,
  • The way our committee chairs and their teams are working behind the scenes to ensure quality programming, educational opportunities, public relations, etc.,
  • The new blood stepping up to join committees and the board,
  • A  diverse board with more professional women taking seats ,
  • The support of our vendor members, both financially and the other resources they provide,
  • Our staff, Michelle and Joanne,
  • Our members, and
  • Our new website

At the last meeting someone commented to me that our success must be because of the President.  I turned to them and said “no, what you see is an organization of committed contractor members, staff and vendor volunteers giving of themselves as much as they can and in some cases more than they should.  They are the reason for our success.”  

Personally, I think I am fortunate to be your President this year.  

In closing, Thank you for all that you do and may you have a fantastic Thanksgiving!

Mark Paskell,

President, EM NARI
