I am excited to be your incoming Chapter President. I am very enthusiastic about what the new year will bring our Chapter. I am a fan of the old adage: you keep doing the same things and you will achieve the same results. I am blessed to be working with a talented Board who are some of the best in our industry. With them, I hope to elevate your experience during our monthly meetings. I do believe it takes all of us including members to keep our Chapter alive and fresh with new ideas. I want to challenge you to become more involved this year by joining committees, being vocal with new ideas, helping in our fundraiser in March, joining our community service projects, etc. There are numerous opportunities to be part of the Chapter. From my ten years of being a Baltimore NACE member, I know the more you are involved, the more you will realize the value in your membership.
Please feel free to approach me at any time. I want to hear your feedback and ideas on how we make the Baltimore NACE Chapter ROCK in 2016!

The House of Ruth needs to cover their butts! Well not their own, but for the babies of their clients. They need diapers! In January the Baltimore NACE Chapter traditionally supports the House of Ruth Maryland, www.hruth.org. This organization is one of the leading domestic violence centers, helping thousands of battered women and their children find safety and security that so many of us take for granted. We ask our members to please bring new, disposable diapers, sizes 4, 5, & 6 as well as Pull-ups sizes 2T thru 6T to our January meeting. We will make sure they get delivered to the House of Ruth.
Thanks for your help in advance!
