It’s Your Time!
CLSA’s 58th Annual Education Meeting in Albuquerque was a huge success! I want to express my gratitude to our corporate sponsors. Your financial support makes our meetings possible. I would also like to thank all of the speakers, volunteers and CLSA Staff for making this year’s meeting absolutely amazing! Thank you all for your dedication to CLSA.
I would personally like to thank Vicky Sheppard for the past 2 years as CLSA President. Thank you for being an amazing friend and leader of our society.
We grow and succeed when we stand on the shoulders of those that have helped us to become who we are. I have stood on the shoulders of my colleagues, my family and my mentor and friend, Jean Ann Vickery.
I have been given an amazing opportunity to lead our organization. Even though I am President, it will require all of us to come together and to use our strengths and talents as a team in order to grow and insure the success of our society. This is OUR society… I encourage each of you to share your ideas and thoughts with me so that we can take CLSA to the next level!
Jack Welch, Chairman and CEO of General Electric, said “Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. When you become a leader, success is all about growing others.”
Regardless of your background or how long you have been a member of CLSA, we all have something to contribute. I welcome all of you to find your place in our society, embrace it and do whatever it takes to achieve your goals. I ask you all to come together and Be Passionate. Be A Leader. Be CLSA!
