President’s Message – Two Heads Are Better Than One
We are surrounded. Surrounded by smarts, experience, passion and talent. And did I mention commitment? Our Strategic Partners fulfill many roles for our members including advisor, resource, partner, educator, guide, consultant, champion and friend. I am excited to announce our newest Strategic Partner, George Karavattuveetil of Psyched LLC. George and his firm provide coaching and leadership consulting. Once you talk to George about his approach to “bringing people up” you will be impressed and inspired.
I want to thank Chris Prestegaard of American Chartered Bank for chairing the Strategic Partners Committee this past year. Chris has passed on the baton to his colleague at ACB, Ken Stemke. This committee is focused on how Strategic Partners can provide even more value to our members and Forums.
Speaking of committees, all of the EFBC committees are busy planning for 2016 and 2017. We’re all looking forward to seeing how they continue to develop and improve our community. As always, we welcome new volunteers to join any of our committees - marketing, membership, programming, young leaders and finance. If you are interested in learning more, please email Liz or Megan.
