A MESSAGE FROM THE OUTGOING PRESIDENT MS. CATHY DALE
It has been an honor and a privilege to serve as your 2019-2020 ASMC Southside Virginia Chapter President. I am especially appreciative for the great speakers and topics that we have provided our chapter members this year. We have achieved some great accomplishments this year!
Despite the challenges that the COVID19 Pandemic has presented, it continued to be a great year for our chapter. Our luncheons continued to be sup-ported this year by our members who displayed their support through extremely high levels of turnout each month. Unfortunately, due to the current operating environment , our annual Mini-PDI has been postponed. Our chapter continued to showcase its community level focus through various initiatives such as: member participation and serving at the monthly Feed the Hungry events, donations to the local Feed the Hungry effort in Petersburg as well as awarding 11 deserving high school students with college scholar-ships. Additionally, I urge all ASMC Southside Virginia Chapters who are teleworking and are in need of CPEs for the CDFM Certification and DOD FM Certification requirements to check out the virtual PDI opportunities available on the National PDI Website.
As most of you are aware, my tenure as your chapter President ends at the end of June and Nisha Dowdell will transition into the role as our new ASMC Southside Virginia Chapter President. I encourage each member to contact Ms. Dowdell or any other member of our executive committee and get involved whether it be by attending the monthly luncheons, chairing a commit-tee, writing a FM article for our newsletter, volunteering with our community service and fundraising events, or sharing your ideas and suggestions to help our chapter do great things for our local financial management community during this next year and the years to follow.
Cathy Dale, CDFM
Our chapter recently awarded $6,000 to 11 graduating seniors from local high schools. Our chapter raises funds that afford us the opportunity to award the scholarships by our volunteering at the Richmond Raceway, St. Benedict’s Church Oktoberfest, etc.
Our chapter recently donated $1,000 to Feed The Hungry at Journey Ministries. During this pandemic, the Board voted this donation would benefit our community.
We want you to share your accomplishments with us for our next newsletter. Did you earn a degree, obtain your CDFM certification, obtain your FM certification, receive a promotion, volunteer, etc.? If you answered yes to any of the questions or have something else to share, please email your organization's VP or Shelby Harrison at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. We will include your accomplishment in our next newsletter.
