The Chairman's Corner
by Jay Casey
In October, I had an opportunity to meet with the Board at our annual Fall Board meeting, which was held at Squaw Creek in Olympic Valley, California. It will be the home of the 2016 CMSA Convention. The board meeting was well-attended, and all members provided valuable input.
One top agenda item discussed was the vocational scholarship. Past CMSA Chairman Joe Hammer Sr. initiated the idea with the Board of starting this vocational scholarship. The Board unanimously increased the value of the scholarship from $1,000 to $2,000. Please visit the CMSA website for more information on eligibility and application procedures.
In addition, we all know our Association is approaching our 100-year mark. The Board nominated Board member Terry Pettigrew-Rolapp to lead a sub-committee to look at options on how to increase our visibility and celebrate our 100th anniversary.
Lastly, I’d like to remind everybody that this is your Association and involvement is integral to our success. If you have any questions on how to get involved, please contact Steve at the CMSA office or feel free to contact me directly.
On a special side note, thanks to Tom Smith and his team for putting on an awesome Orange County/Beach Cities Chapter Golf Tournament in San Juan Capistrano. Tom, congratulations on your success and thank you for your support.
