Greetings Fellow Gulf States Region Member:
I hope this year end message finds you well. As I go into my last year of my term, I want to again thank you for the opportunity to represent you on the Institute Board.
During the term we have seen the stabilization of business operations, the launch of CROSSWALK, member support programs such as DCP (Dynamic Chapter Program) and a substantial update to the website to include our learning library and numerous leadership tools in the leader's section. If you have not visited any of these areas of our community, I encourage you to take the time over the holidays exploring these new member services.
Additionally, through the term the Board has worked judicially to leverage our roll in BSD to benefit the members of CSI. CSI members can be proud of our BSD journey.However, the business of CSI never stops which is why I am messaging you today. Our next Board meeting will be January 27 via Zoom. If you have any items of interest you would like to discuss, please contact me so I can best represent our membership.
Also, if you have any members you would like to move to Emeritus status, please contact member services for a copy of the form to submit. Please know this status must be voted on by the Institute Board, so if you miss this meeting the next opportunity will not be until June.
Lastly, I want to say I know it has been a challenging year in many ways for most. I never thought when this year started, I would be trying to survive a global pandemic and repair my house because of an Eater tornado. From the bottom of my heart, I cannot thank everyone enough for their encouraging words this year during these challenging times. CSI people are the best and I am so blessed to be a part of this community.
I wish you and your family a Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year. And most importantly, THANK YOU for all your support of CSI!
William Sundquist, FCSI, GSR Institute Board Director
