“Great things in business are never done by one person. They’re done by a team of people.” —Steve Jobs

What a crazy year it’s been! As I look back on our chapter year, I see a million and a half successes, which, when I pile them together in my mind, create a mountain a mile high. Wondering what I mean by successes? Let me ‘splain, Lucy!

Just this month, we began with a fantastic social media workshop broadcast to five locations, and partnered with SMPS Upstate New York for the first time. Last week, we hosted a sold out Coordinators Club on AEC Basics. Last night, we had a wonderful, jam-packed client panel on Modular Construction. Tonight, we have two Spirits events with tremendous registration numbers. And next week, our special events committee is pulling out all the stops for our Member Appreciation Event. As the final events of our chapter year unfold, I can’t help but feel a sense of joy. Together with the support of our esteemed sponsors, our volunteers managed to pull off an amazing year, having delivered a wealth of knowledge and opportunity for our members and AEC community. What more could a purple president ask for??
All I have to say about that is…THANK YOU.
Cheers to each and every one of you,
