President’s Message- December 2011
It’s hard to believe that the end of the year is almost here already. Time sure does fly! It has been a really great year and I would like to personally wish each and every one of you a very safe and happy holiday season.
With 2011 coming quickly to a close, re-organization of the ICHA Officers & Board of Directors is once again upon us. That being said, my term as ICHA President has now come to an end and although I have enjoyed my time serving as the ICHA President, I am very happy and confident to turn the reins over to Ray Goffin as of January 1, 2012. I feel that Ray will do a great job in leading our organization, and I will continue to serve as the ICHA Ex-Officio for a 2-year term. I would also like to welcome a new addition to our ICHA Board, Robert Schutte, who will graciously serve a 2-year term with us. The rest of the current members of the ICHA Board have all been re-elected for additional terms starting in 2012, and I am excited to continue to serve with them. I would like to say Thank You to each of them for graciously volunteering to stay on for another term. I appreciate the time and effort that each member of our team puts in on behalf of the ICHA to make great contributions on so many levels. Please be sure to take the opportunity to tell them each thank you!
I invite each of you to join us for a PARTY! Our Annual ICHA General Membership Meeting, along with our ICHA Year-End Awards Party, will be held on Saturday, January 7th, 2012 in beautiful Ketchum, Idaho at Jim & Sandy Figge’s Party Barn. A big THANK YOU to Jim & Sandy Figge for their gracious hospitality of once again hosting this event for the ICHA members!
