Hello Northwest Chapter Members!
The Board wishes you a very happy new year!
As we begin this new year, I would like to first thank our Board members and Committee chairpersons from this past year for all of your work, planning, and carrying out our Chapter's activities that led to a successful year. And, a very special shout out to Camilla Brown as the recipient of our 2018 President's Award – so well deserved. Additionally, I am looking forward to working with this year's Chapter Board members and Committee chairpersons, AICP NW Chapter Leadership, as we plan educational and networking events for this year.
Your Northwest Chapter Board and Committee Chairpersons are hard at work planning events for you in 2019. Your Chapter leadership team is committed to serving as a resource for your professional development and helping to promote the values of the AICP. The focus of our speakers, the presentations and all our educational opportunities are to increase your professional knowledge and to expand your compliance industry and regulator contacts. We are here to help you!
Chapter leadership held a strategic planning meeting after Annual Conference to discuss events and activities for 2019. We are happy to announce our 2019 line-up:
Plan to check our NW Chapter web pages on a regular basis. We will keep you informed of the status of our planning for this year's events and activities. Also, keep in mind that the headlining event of the year is the Annual Conference being held September 22-25 in Denver, CO!
A big THANKS to our Chapter Finance Committee for putting together our 2019 budget that supports our goals and activities for 2019. Our budget has been rolled up with the national budget and will be reviewed at the January, 2019 National Board Meeting.
Don't hesitate to contact me, or any Northwest Chapter officer, with any questions or ideas you have regarding our Chapter.
May your 2019 be filled with good luck, good health and much happiness! We look forward to seeing you at our events in 2019.
Northwest Chapter President
