President's Message


Welcome Houston Chapter Members!

 I am honored to serve as your President of the Houston Chapter this year.  We are fortunate to have a great Board of Directors that have committed to do their best to provide you with informative and interesting technical meetings, quality continuing professional education, and a positive environment to network with  other members and guests.

 There is a poignant quote that goes something like, “Successful people are always looking for opportunities to help others.  Unsuccessful people are always asking ‘What’s in it for me?’”  This year, we have a wonderful opportunity to give back to our members, our profession, and our community.  We can choose to make the most of the opportunities that come our way, or we can let them slip through our fingers.  The choice is ours.  But to make any opportunity come to fruition, we must be proactive.  It takes effort and commitment. 

 As with so many opportunities in life, we get out of it what we are willing to put into it.  So I challenge our members:  commit to coming to at least three meetings this year; commit to serving on a project; commit to taking pride in your profession; and commit to making the Houston Chapter the best organization that it can possibly be!  If you can do that, the Board of Directors and I will be at your side!
