President’s Message

Greetings Members,

As August gets underway and our minds turn toward school starting and trying to squeeze in the last vacation days, I ask that you try to remember that we are fast approaching the golf outing. While mostly sold out for golf, there are still opportunities for advertising and participating. I would urge you to contact either Kevin Kenzinger or Brendan Winters for details on last-minute arrangements for how to participate. Thanks to all for helping to make this the single biggest event of the year for Cog Hill. We occupy every course they have to offer, including Dubs Dread. We will be sending out huge numbers of golfers all in the name of supporting the organization in a very real fiscal way. This event helps us to afford the meetings and events that keep our socializing strong and in top notch locations.

I am in perpetual awe of the caliber of our Chiefs in this organization, and as we move toward the Dinner Dance this January, we will be recognizing our selection of the standout individual who fills this important role. If you have someone you think is of particular devotion to the trade, we welcome your suggestions to our board. In that same respect, we will be selecting our Associate Member of the Year. This company and individual will be someone who elevates the services and/or products that support our Chiefs in their buildings day to day, so help us find the best of the best. We welcome your input in these matters.

I would like to personally thank all the Board of Directors, Associates and friends who sent flowers made donations to Twin Hearts Autism or just reached out to support my family during the recent passing of my mom. Without the least bit of exaggeration, I believe she was the strongest person I ever met. However, after years of declining health, she finally succumbed to the cancer. There are so many people who called from faraway places to extend their condolences, and so many lives touched by my mom that I was completely humbled by the outpouring of kindness, and it is that energy that helps say goodbye when I know it is time to do just that.

No matter how old we get losing our parents is always a shock and I am grateful to this community for stepping up and making a difference in this old Chief’s grieving.

In closing, I want to wish all of you a peaceful summer and warm rays on the face while you chase the last light of summer.
