From the President
Dear ASID Oregon Members,
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to serve as your 2013-14 Chapter President. I look forward to working with all of you over the next year! Together we will continue to grow our chapter membership, increase community awareness and promote our profession in Oregon and across the country.
My goal for our chapter this year is to grow our member in all categories - Professional, Allied, Emerging Professionals, Industry Partners and our Students. I’m excited to help create more professional and CEU opportunities for practicing professionals as well as look forward to supporting student chapters form and grow.
I want to encourage all of you to get involved in our chapter by volunteering to serve on a committee. We all have gifts and strengths to offer and there is no better way to meet your peers, build relationships and make a difference in our organization then by offering your time and skills to strengthen our chapter. I know that many of you have already given great amounts of time, and we are very grateful. For those of you who have never joined a committee, please consider signing up and making a difference. Our chapter has been growing in leaps and bounds and I am counting on our continued growth and hoping many of our new members will take this opportunity to get involved and be a part of making our chapter better each year. The more you put in the more you get out!
The 2104-13 Chapter Board is creating a new calendar of meetings and events that will be exciting, fun and of value to your business and our profession. Mark your calendars for an ASID gathering the third Thursday of each month. We try to keep our monthly meetings consistent so you know when to expect them but once in a while we also need to be flexible with schedules.
Watch for our Quarterly email newsletter and monthly updates. Check the ASID Oregon website and calendar of events to stay informed. Add your headshot and/or project pictures to your profile on the website and they’ll appear on the home page. Join our linked in, facebook, and twitter pages to take advantage of networking and marketing opportunities. We’re here for you!
Cheers to a great year ahead, I hope to see all of you at our next member meeting at Ann Sacks!
