I have to say, I was not expecting to be writing a president’s article for the newsletter this month. I was elected as the Trip VP for 2019-2020, but as the position of president was vacant, per SSC bylaws, Trip VP assumes the duties of president. So here I am. The first thought that came to my mind for this article was “transition”. The definition of transition is:
NOUN: the process or a period of changing from one state or condition to another.
These words will hold very true for this coming year and I ask that the SSC membership bear with me and the board during this time of transition. As of now, we do not have all of the board positions filled, so the board will need to adapt to these vacancies if they remain unfilled. We will also be transitioning for a time with a different style of newsletter. Please be assured that we will continue to disperse all the necessary information about trips, social events and meetings to our membership, it just may look different as we move from one format to another. We are on track with trips and I look forward to announcing them and our trip leaders at the Spring Banquet. Here’s to a good year!
