Hello Members,

What a year! Congratulations to all of us on achieving 11th Place in the Warner Division competition! There are 74 Chapters in the Warner Division for IMA Global, so that puts us, the small town of Hickory, in the top 15% for education goals. Very Impressive. We will receive a Banner, and we will get pictures with the Banner for publication in the local paper and for publication on our website and LinkedIn feed.

The items listed on our Chapter Achievements page plus our monthly meeting attendance and Conference attendance (webinars too) all count toward our competition points. If you ever feel you have a few minutes and can help even in a small way, just let any Board Member know. We have things as simple as confirming dates and locations with speakers (can be done by email) or helping email flyers before our Conferences, to helping with check in at the Conferences. We have many small tasks and all are important.

The May Conference and Webinar’s went off without a hitch. We are very proud of our Internet support team, and our speakers received excellent reviews. While we don’t have all of the numbers yet, it looks like we will show a small profit on this Conference this year. Thank you to everyone who helped make this happen.

One of the items from our Chapter Achievements chart from last year was “#9, to develop an annual plan that aligns with Global’s strategic plan”. That plan is attached in this newsletter for your review. Over the summer months we will not hold any monthly programs, so this is an ideal time for each of our Board ‘teams’ to get together begin planning their projects for the year. If you want me to attend any of these meetings, please let me know.

Best Regards,
Ellen Knauf
