As another chapter year comes to a close, I find myself reflecting on the significance of networking. The 22/23 year marked a period of transitioning back to in-person events enabling us the chance to foster genuine connections and personally benefiting from the invaluable experiences they offered.
First and foremost, I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to everyone who actively participated in these in-person networking opportunities. Your presence and engagement have played a pivotal role in expanding our professional networks, creating opportunities for growth, and fostering a sense of community. Each and every one of you has contributed to the success of our local chapter, and for that, I am sincerely thankful.
As we embark on a new year, I am filled with excitement as I envision the continued growth, networking, and career advancement of our chapter officers, volunteers, and members. Through the networking events and comprehensive CPE offerings that the Chattanooga Area Chapter will consistently provide, I am confident that our stakeholders, shareholders, and employees from various companies will benefit immensely, experiencing enhanced controls, improved ethical behavior and operational efficiency.
