Letter from the President

A Message from 2016-17 President Chris Astrella WCPC

Happy Election Season to all of you! October, it seems, is a month of transition. Transition from Summer to Fall, from baseball to football (and hockey and basketball), and from budgets to elections…or is it elections to budgets? At any rate this is a busy month for everyone, and I’m sure you’re all working hard on your budgets, on in-person absentee voting and gearing up for November. Don’t forget to take a little time for yourself! We’re under a month until the big Election, but I’m confident everyone will do an amazing job and we can all breathe easy when it’s over.

October has been a busy month for me as well! Julie and I started off the month with a quick trip to Walt Disney World just in time to have Hurricane Matthew join us, but it was an adventure and we had a great time. The Finance Committee is meeting on the 14th with myself and 1st Vice President Barb Goeckner in attendance to work on the WMCA Budget for next year, and our board meeting will be the following Friday on the 21st. It’s going to be a busy one with the election of 2 new Directors at Large, the swearing in of a new District Director for District 6, the discussion and passing of the budget, and the rest of our normal business.

Due to my trip to Disney, I was unable to make it to three district meetings this month, but I recorded a 9 minute YouTube video and sent it along to the District Directors to play for everyone. It’s my goal to continue this practice for each District meeting I’m unable to make…so while I may not be there physically, I can still be there!

I hope the rest of your October goes smoothly, and since Halloween is on a Monday, that we all have some great costumes to wear! Again, the opportunity to be your President is one that I’m so honored to have; thank you for believing in me and supporting me like you all have.
