ASSE Illinois chapter

President's Message
March 2018


Hello Friends,

It seems just like yesterday that our past chapter president Micheal McGaughan offered me the opportunity of taking over as President after his two year term was complete. I was honored to have been thought of to fill the position, but was also nervous to take on the role as I was not sure I could devote enough time to the task. I also did not have any idea as to what exactly my role would entail. However, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity, so I said yes! The first year started out great. Some of our sponsors really stepped up and put together some great meetings and before I knew it, it was already November and I was on my way to the annual ASSE National Convention. What a great time I had. It’s pretty cool to meet and share ideas with other members from around the country. For me, the highlight of the two conventions I was fortunate enough to attend, was the President’s luncheon. If you haven’t been to it, it starts out with a discussion where all the Chapter Presidents give their annual reports and share ideas on what’s working and what’s not for their local Chapter. It’s amazing to see so many passionate people that volunteer their time year after year! That is what makes this organization so great! It’s really hard these days to find people who are willing to routinely lend a helping hand. So thank you to all who have volunteered their time and helped the Illinois Chapter! Let’s all give our new Chapter President, Dennis Riordan, a helping hand as he helps navigate the Illinois Chapter into the future.

So long and see ya around!

Sincerely,
Randy Olson
President, ASSE Illinois Chapter
