April 2022 Newsletter
We could easily dwell on "the year that wasn't" versus on "the year that was". The year that was is more reflective of the strength and determination that was endured as an association, in our businesses, and in our personal lives. And it is more promising as a sign of things to come regardless of what is going on around us. As obstacles came about, members rallied to find solutions. They came together to help one another get through the challenges. And for that, our association and its members are stronger than ever before.
This year had many "firsts" that fortunately will become a normal part of the association. Everything virtual from board meetings, Brown Bag Club webinars, auctions, Spirit Week conference, Happy Hour... and so many more. Most of us have lived weekly in each other's offices, livings rooms, kitchen tables, and homes.
I am grateful for the opportunity to serve as MSSA President in 2020. It is inspiring to see and feel the potential of our members. Personally, I recently confided that I have met most of my closest friends in the MSSA. I am thankful to be amongst friends that are family. I am looking forward to continuing to serve on the Executive Committee in 2021.
Thank you to all the Board Members and committee chairs/members, annual sponsors, MSSA members, and Karen and Annie for an adventurous 2020. Without you all we could not have made it through.
Thank you and let us continue to take care of each other.
