Are you as amazed as I am that 2015 is drawing to a close?  What a GOOD year it has been so far, and more still to come!

Friday we completed our second GOOD doing good event supporting our amazing host and partner Goodwill.  It is a wonderful program to encourage reading by young children. 

Goodwill schedules volunteer readers in elementary classrooms, and then provides each child with their very own book from Goodwill! 

Should you have books that your children or grandchildren have outgrown, please consider donating them by bringing them to the next GOOD meeting. 

We will have a donation bin near registration for books or any personal or household items that you may bring to donate.  What an easy way to serve our community and support the mission of Goodwill; providing jobs.

So far this year we have renewed our commitment to diversity in our presenters and in our workplaces.  We have learned how to show the return on the investments that our clients make, ensuring our continued influence.

We once again marveled at the talents among our members at our annual best practice meeting.  And we took a fresh look at meeting design to ensure meetings that we lead are highly effective and efficient.

Dr. Charlene Rousseau will lead us October 16 focusing on Coaching for Performance: Leader as Coach.  We are looking forward to a very interactive learning experience, and we are counting on you to participate with us.

Another important event at our October meeting: we will be voting on the GOOD Leadership Team for 2016!  We are delighted to begin the leadership transition process earlier to allow for an enhanced learning and communication process. 

Your vote is important, and you will want to meet our new Leadership Team.  We do still have openings for volunteers in 2016!  Or start considering if  perhaps 2017 will be your year to contribute to GOOD as a leader.

Thank you for your support and your feedback, which gives us direction to continue to craft GOOD to meet your professional development, service, and networking goals.  Our members are the network that makes it GOOD!

We look forward to seeing you at GOOD on October 16th.

Thank you for being a part of GOOD,
