President's Message

Oh, Say Can You See?

Looking Ahead to New Challenges

By Taryn Light

First, a hearty "Thank you!"

This past year, Hans Fenstermacher, our immediate past president, hit a grand slam, drove in the winning runs, and brought us victory! Thank you, Hans, for leading us to the worldwide Chapter of Distinction award and raising the standards for the rest of us to follow. Thank you also to the many hard-working officers, council members, committee members, and volunteers who comprised the winning team. Without you, we would not be able to serve our members.

As your incoming chapter president, I feel like a Red Sox batter (and a rookie one at that) who just stepped up to the plate after Hans' grand slam! He's a tough act to follow. Thank goodness, Hans will continue on our Council in an advisory position as the Immediate Past President. The legacy of his leadership will continue.

Who's on First, What's on Second, and I Don't Know's on Third!

It's a good thing that we don't have players with confusing names like these on our team! However, you still need a game program to know "who's who." Please put your e-hands together and welcome our new STC Boston Chapter Officers and Council members.

You already know a bit about this talented team from reading their biographies on our recent ballot. In the next issue of the Broadside, I will share more about each officer and council member and, hopefully, show you their photographs.

What's Next?

Looking ahead, we must create a vision that leads to action one that brings about positive change. With this in mind, I set the following goals for the STC Boston Chapter:

If you have talents that will help us meet these goals, please let me know.

When I attended the STC Annual Conference in Nashville, TN, in May, I heard the following quote that sums up my goals for this year.

Vision without action is merely a dream
Action without vision just passes the time.
with action can change the world.
Joel Barker

Together, we can meet the goals of our vision, because the STC Boston Chapter is a chapter of action and together we can make our vision a reality!
