In late August I found myself scrambling to rearrange my work schedule to provide opening comments at AGC’s 7th Annual Executive Safety Conference. Let me be clear: while the opportunity to lead this association is one of my greatest honors, these events don’t get planned around my convenience. Sometimes they coincide with deadlines, family requirements, or emergencies. As a contractor, there’s always some crisis or deadline that has me running around.
My term as President is officially “over the hill” as of this issue. I’ve heard it said before that a president spends about ten months learning the ropes and is finally fully trained just as he leaves the position. After reaching the halfway mark, I’m inclined to agree. It is extremely fortunate that the Chapter’s member involvement is unsurpassed. It’s easy to be a leader when standing on the shoulders of giants. And as I look at the activity of the Chapter so far in 2018, I’m truly honored to be able to watch our growth from this vantage point. The Finance Committee reported during the June Board of Directors meeting that we have experienced an uptick in expenditures from our area meetings.
