President’s Message

What can your chapter do for you?

For the last ten months, I have struggled with how to get more of our members actively involved with the chapter.  It dawned on me earlier this month, however, that the real issue isn’t what we can do to get members involved, it’s what can the Alabama Chapter do for its members?  So far this year, your chapter has offered an educational scholarship, provided stipends for members to attend LDAC in Washington D.C., offered stipends for members to attend the both regional and  national meeting in Denver, Colorado, hosted AI After Hour social events, and sponsored nine educational offerings.  But is this what you want, or are you looking for something else?  It’s your chapter and each of you has the right to voice your opinion, offer suggestions or just complain.  Please take a few minutes and send me an email at to let me know what you think the Alabama Chapter should be doing for you.
