When we take a look back at the 2 year tenure of the current board, we faced some interesting challenges, and we rose up to deal with them! Our membership numbers have remained steady, and we were able to get some new people involved to help us better serve our members. We learned to be creative in the way we communicate with our membership. Rather than in person monthly meetings, we introduced pre-recorded videos, a written question and answer dialogue that was emailed to members, and of course... Zoominars! (Yes, we learned some new vocabulary along the way) We had a viable meeting each month this year, and had specific topics directed to group, individual, and Medicare producers.
As we transition now into a new leadership team, those of us that are phasing out need to maintain our enthusiasm, and offer our experience in support of our chapter. We could say that the same old challenges remain, and that it's just a different day. But that isn't entirely true. There are some new challenges that need to be added to our "to do" list. These challenges include:
* Developing education geared more toward our Medicare members. This segment is growing!
* Establishing monthly meetings that appeal to more than just our local members, but shared virtually across the state
* Along those same lines, working closely with other chapters who can attract unique speakers that will be of interest to our chapter, and sharing those meetings with us
* Enhancing the relationships with our Champions Circle sponsors, who expect (and deserve) the opportunity to assist in our efforts to educate and elevate our members
A special thanks for everyone who made the past two years especially gratifying, from members who reached out to offer their assistance, to our local Triad Board, our NCAHU statewide Board, and our Regional Leadership Team! Cheers! You are all amazing!
