Regional Executive’s Welcome
Dear Region 2 Members and Guests,
And just like that, summer is over and we are ready to begin a new season! I have always loved fall because it is like a new beginning: the first day of school, the first leaves begin to change and some fun holidays are approaching. There are some exciting things in the works at the chapter, regional and national level too:
- The Region 2 Annual Conference is back and in-person at Turning Stone this fall, October 12th-October 14th. This will be the first time we can gather for this conference since 2019 so put it on your calendars and plan to join us to hear some great speakers, enjoy fun networking and have a chance to win some very cool prizes! See the brochure link on the Region 2 home page for more information. It’s not too late to register and join us so sign up today!
- The chapter consolidation effort for Hudson Valley, Northeastern NY, Central NY and Western NY chapters, led by the current officers and board of directors, your regional team and the Association, is making great progress! The goal of this bold and forward-thinking initiative is to give our members a stellar experience and more opportunities for education and connection. You should have received information from your home chapter on the next step in this process, which is the vote of the members of the Hudson Valley, Central NY, Western NY and Northeastern NY chapters only. Members of these four chapters were sent an email with an opportunity to cast your vote on both the consolidation and the slate of officers. It is a very quick, two question survey and it is very important that we get your vote so please reach out to your home chapter leaders for information or if you did not receive an email.
- The Region 2 Webinar Committee is in full swing with some diverse and timely educational opportunities coming your way so look for emails from the team to make sure you take advantage of this member benefit.
Lastly, please consider volunteering in your home chapter. It is a great way to get connected, network and learn a new skill. If you would like information on how to get involved, please reach out to the leaders listed in the chapter links in the top right section of our home page. We would love to get to know you and hear your ideas!
