President’s Message for June 2016

ChrysanthemumThis is It, a song by Kenny Loggins, to me is a call to action.  “This is it, make no mistake where you are.  This is it, the waiting is over.”  One place you will want to be on July 28th is at the annual GRAVA Professional Conference.  Each year we host a day of learning, networking, sharing and professional development and growth and this year is no exception!  Be sure to register and attend this exciting day where we will be introduced to CrossThink Strategies for Innovation.

This is it, your new GRAVA leadership!  At the June Roundtable the membership voted on the GRAVA slate of candidates for the 2016-2017 Board.  We welcome Jennifer Miller and Whitney Guthrie as Conference Co-Chairs, Brynn Markham as Professional Development Chair, Cheryl Kosakowski as Treasurer and Tawana Demery who joined the board in January as Membership Chair.  Thank you to all who stepped forward and agreed to serve in this capacity!

“This is it, the waiting is over”, this year’s Volunteer Engagement Professional of the Year (VEP) will be announced at the GRAVA Professional Conference!  You won’t want to miss this.

Wishing you all a wonderful summer filled with some time to reflect on the first half of the year and time to plan and rejuvenate for the second half.  Remember This is it!

See you in July!

Melissa M. Gilmore, M Ed., CVA
GRAVA President
