President's Corner

By Jordan Grote posted Dec 19, 2019 07:50 AM


With my term as President coming to an end, I’m proud that we accomplished our primary goal to increase the overall chapter’s engagement and experience through an exciting year filled with exceptional monthly programs, professional development opportunities, and several networking and community outreach events.

A special thanks to our amazing 2019 board members and committee chairs for their leadership, enthusiasm, and dedication to our chapter! I also want to extend my appreciation and gratitude to each one of you – our members and sponsors – for making this year so special!

Before I pass the torch to Melissa Jancourt (as your next Chapter President), I want to highlight a very strong start to our 2020 monthly program lineup with back-to-back nationally recognized speakers, Rex Miller and Sally Augustin. See further details below.

As always, feel free to reach out to Jordan, Melissa, our committee chairs, or myself to see how you can become more involved in CoreNet (join a committee, participate in a panel, mentor a young leader, judge an award, share our story on social media, etc.).

Best wishes to you and your family during this Holiday Season!  - Rome Poppler
