This is my final message as Chairman and I can honestly say this last year as Chairman has been one of the greatest experiences in my life. I not only have had the opportunity to meet and work with a great group of people who have served on the board in the past as well as those who are currently serving on the board, but I have also had the great experience of getting to know the staff at CMA on a more personal basis as well as other members of the association.
It is clear that the entire staff of CMA has one goal in mind, and that is to be the best credit association there is. I’ve seen first hand the hard work, dedication and loyalty displayed by everyone that works there. It makes me proud to be a member of CMA.
One of our goals this last year was to create more visibility for the members, the association, the services, the board of directors as well as the President and staff of CMA. My hope is that this will continue on. As times change, needs change, and the ability to remain relevant and add value to our members is imperative to our success. The more members the association has, the more valuable the membership will be.
CMA’s Annual Meeting and Installation of Officers will be held on April 14th at the Montebello Country Club. There will be an educational session from 10:00-11:15 given by Michael Joncich and Richard Kaufman dealing with bankruptcy alternatives. Barry Elms will be the keynote speaker and if you have never heard Barry speak, you will be both entertained and educated all at the same time.
Rob Meza is the incoming Chairman and I will be passing the gavel to him. Karen Schmidt will be the new Vice Chairman and Brian Atteberry will be the new Treasurer. Please join us for the annual meeting and take advantage of the great networking opportunities. I look forward to seeing you all there!
All the best to you,
Mary Lynn Jordan
