Presidents Message   

“Ah, September! You are the doorway to the season that awakens my soul... but I must confess that I love you only because you are a prelude to my beloved October.” ― Peggy Toney Horton

Fall has always been my favorite time of year!  Maybe it’s because I was born in the fall, the cooler weather, my love of football or all things pumpkin, but I just love this time of year (other than budgets being due of course)!  Fall, October in particular, is a time to reflect on the year that is almost over before the holidays are upon us, and to plan for the year to come.  

Keep an eye out for a call for nominations for Professional Member of the Year, Associate Member of the Year, Committee Member of the Year, Rookie of the Year and Sponsor of the Year.  These awards are given out at our Chapter Appreciation event and are key in recognizing our hard working volunteers and future chapter leadership. 

Thank you again for allowing me the opportunity to serve as your president this year, and please do not hesitate to contact me if I can assist in making your IFMA membership better in any way!
