I hope everyone had a great Christmas and had a chance to recharge for 2018.
Our Christmas Party was a huge success; everyone I talked with had a great time networking and playing the casino games. Many people walked away with great gifts. I want to thank everyone who helped make this event possible, including the many sponsors who contributed money and prizes to the event. Their information can be found on our website. Thanks to our sponsors, the Dallas Chapter will be making a nice donation to Ring of Hope, more on this at the Jan meeting.
Last week I attended the South Central Region Planning conference in Frisco. This yearly event is an opportunity for the new chapter leaders to come together and learn from each other. At the conference we took part in a great seminar on leadership and participated in the 11th hour of a mock bid. The first focused on being centered and calm, the other managing chaos. Then the conference concluded with the region board meeting. These conferences are always informative, but to fully benefit, you also have to stay for the evening events as well. For this conference, that included an event at Top Golf and after hours hospitality suite.
