The Chairman's Corner

by Jay Casey

March 2015

February was a busy month!  It is usually that way each year. However, with just 28 days in the month, I was able to pack in four chapter meetings and visit more than 25 members, five of them being Associate members.  Each chapter was charged up planning the final touches on their upcoming fundraisers.  It is awe-inspiring to see all the hard work that is put into these top-notch operations. It was great to see all of the involvement!  This month has made me contemplate just how important the CMSA is, and the benefits it carries to all of its members.

As CMSA members, we should all be charged up for the benefits that we have as members of theAssociation.  We should extend our thanks to the people who have worked on our behalf to make the CMSA what it is today, and what it will be in the future.  CMSA’s staff: Steve, Renee, Brianna and Gale are second to none in their ability, effort and accomplishments in running the nation’s largest state moving association.  They handle questions and concerns from members, the moving public, the PUC and other consumer agencies on a daily basis.  We should be thankful for these great people.   A special thanks to our CMSA President Steve Weitekamp. You don’t truly realize the time commitment and dedication this job demands until you take a road trip.  Steve, thanks for your encouragement and leadership.

The resources available to the CMSA members to prepare us for the next step are unparalleled in any state association in our great nation.

I’m proud to be part of the team, and I am looking forward to seeing everyone next month at the Convention. Lastly, I owe a special thanks to the Northern Region Chapter. Its February meeting was my last chapter meeting as the CMSA Chairman and the attendance exceeded 45 members. Plus, one of the dinner options was jambalaya; who can say no to jambalaya?
