I hope and trust that everyone had an enjoyable Holiday Season. I would
also like to welcome everyone into the new decade. 2010
wow, it just sounds
funny to say, doesn't it? I certainly hope that everyone can find time, in the
midst of fulfilling their New Year's Resolutions at their local gym, to attend
our January SPE luncheons.
I want to make a special announcement regarding
the meeting on Thursday, January 28th. At that time we will be honoring this year's
class of "Legion of Honor". A personmust maintain 50 consecutive years
of SPE membership to become a recipient. The Mid-Continent section is fortunate
enough to have 8 such persons qualify in 2010, their names are listed below.
I would like to bring the upcoming SPE Awards season into the focus of the section.
Awards nominations have been an area lacking in our section over the past few
years, and the board is making an effort to make this a priority once again. We
have a lot of talented and deserving professionals and instructors in our section,
and they should be recognized as such. The board will be distributing information
email and at meeting over the next two months to educate our members regarding
the various awards. Please take a moment to identify a worthy colleague and submit
his or her name to the SPE-MC Board. We will do all of the legwork in preparing
the official nominations
we just need you to give us the name.
warm and have a great January.
