President’s Message

The Challenge

Hello Chapter 4. Wow! That was a quick summer…and September. I wanted to introduce myself as your new Chapter 4 President for the 2017/2018 year. I am excited about this year and the changes that are taking place. We currently have a new venue in the Red Lion in Bellevue. Well, some of you remember it as the old venue and it worked out well for our September lunch meeting.

Speaking of lunch meetings, we are also switching up the times to make most of this year’s meetings (except for October). Last year our attendance was down toward the end of the year and according to the survey last year, the time of day, our programs and especially traffic had a lot to do with why people did or did not attend our monthly meetings. Read more…


The 2017 & 2018 course schedule is now available for you to see! Go here or look on side bar and calendar to see schedule.

Please let Education Chair, Karen Wright know if you are interested in being a class coordinator for any of the classes. Karen.wright@contractlandstaff.com



Opportunity is knocking. Volunteer today!  There are numerous opportunities to help out Chapter 4.  Not only will you get to meet and interact with more members, you might also get your 2017 annual dues paid for.  Check out the sign up boards at the upcoming membership meetings and get involved!”

As for the 2017 prize, one volunteer will be nominated and selected by the board with the Volunteer of the Year Award presented at the June Installation and Awards Banquet.  The Chapter will pay the 2017 membership dues for the Volunteer of the Year award winner.
