    Presidents Message

    Message from the President
    I would like to begin by thanking all of our members who attended our 2018 conference at Shingle Creek in Orlando, and our committee members who assisted in making it such a great success. Those who were unable to attend missed an exceptional event loaded with quality training and networking opportunities.
    I would like to request all who attended the conference to send a note of appreciation to Captain Eifler regarding anything that stood out for them or their guests (spouse/kids programs) at the conference. Captain Eifler would like to put his team in for a unit commendation, and would appreciate any input provided. Captain Eifler’s e-mail address is [email protected]


    Once again, I would like to thank our area representatives for their hard work and dedication as they continue to provide quality area events. There are several more events scheduled around the state through the end of this year; please check your calendars and attend as many as you can.


    We are still below the one thousand member mark for the 2018 year. If you know someone who did not renew, please remind them to renew their membership. If we do not exceed the one thousand member mark, Past President Cannon will never let me hear the end of it. So please help!


    If the opportunity arises make sure to congratulate Patty Wells who will be your 2019 Third Vice President. Patty will be an exceptional addition to your board; however, it will leave a void in the vendor coordinator position. Therefore, in the very near future a job description will be sent out to fill that vacancy. I have no doubt we have members just as capable as Patty of fulfilling the obligations of the position, and I look forward to continued success with our corporate partners.


    For those unaware, our Legal Advisor, John Klein, is retiring after approximately ten years as the chapter’s legal advisor. John has agreed to assist with the selection and orientation of a new legal advisor, which we hope to have selected prior to end of this year. John’s counsel and mentorship will be sorely missed.


    I look forward to seeing you at an area event.
    Sincerely,
    Greg Witt
    223rd Session
    2018 Florida Chapter FBINAA, President
