Presidents Message

The National AGA PDT was held last week in New Orleans with record attendance. I attended a variety of very interesting, inspiring and informative general and concurrent sessions starting Sunday afternoon through Wednesday afternoon. I had a chance to see Bourbon Street and sample some gumbo and great seafood.

Once again the Lincoln Chapter earned sufficient credits in the Chapter Recognition Program to receive a Platinum award - the highest category. I accepted the plaque on behalf of Adam Brown, Past Chapter President. This honor is shared by the 18-19 CEC members and another year of extraordinary participation by the Chapter’s membership.

Make sure to attend the September 18th Chapter meeting @ Tico’s to learn more about the National Recognition Program and our award. Also the two top 18-19 local Chapter members will be recognized and each will receive $25. All this plus a speaker.

The September Chapter meeting will begin a new Program Year. Members can earn credits by attending monthly Chapter meetings, webinars and participating in Community Service Projects. Check out the website and future newsletters for information on upcoming speakers and meeting locations.

I also want to thank the Chapter for making it possible for me to attend another great AGA National PDT. The training sessions were very informative and it was interesting to visit with members from other Chapters to learn how they operate.
The 2020 AGA National PDT will be July 19-22 and will be held in Dallas.

The Fall PDT will be September 12th at the Nebraska Innovation Campus. Watch for more information on the website and in future newsletters.

Ann Martinez, President
