I want to congratulate all of you - the Board, members, hosts, supporters - everyone, on an extremely successful first year "in business". We have accomplished more in 12 months than I could have ever imagined, and for that, I am very grateful to you all and proud to represent you as President of this organization.
We finished year one with 77 members, 12 after hours networking events, 5 community service days, a Trivia Night, a Bowling Night, and placed 7 NFAYP members on the boards of local nonprofit organizations. Wow.
While this is a lot to hang our hat on, we are not done yet. It is our directive to hone in our focus on membership in year 2. Our goal is to be at 300 members in another 12 months largely because we have found as our membership grows, the more we are able to offer in the way of community, networking, and professional development to our members. So, tell your friends about NFAYP and get involved to the extent you can. We are always open to ideas, and looking for potential candidates for our Board, committees, and programs.
I look forward to growing with you in year two.
