President’s Message

Hi CALL Members,

As I write my first President’s letter, the whole world has changed since our last business meeting in February. While we have been sheltering in place for the last few months, some of us may have discovered a few hidden talents we may never know we had. I hope we can all share our newly discovered talents with each other. We have had to rethink how we look at the world and perform route tasks such as buying groceries. With this change has come a call for creativity and collaboration. Future CALL members might look back at this issue and see what it was like to live through an pandemic. Let’s show future CALL members how resilient we are! Continue reading President’s Message

President’s Letter

Greetings, CALL members! We’re about halfway through our CALL year, and I wanted to share some of the work of our committees and upcoming events. Our February Business Meeting was at Maggiano’s on Feb. 6. While our attendance numbers for this meeting are up, the attendance at our September and November meetings this year were lower than average. And while I’d love to say it’s just because we’ve all just holding out for the pasta, meeting attendance and membership numbers has been a creeping downward trend in our association, and profession-wide.

President’s Letter

Dear Colleagues,

It seems like just last week we were kicking off the new year with our first meeting at Wildfire, and here we are, already lacing up our boots and digging out our mittens to head out to Ditka’s for the November Business Meeting.

Winter is officially upon us. While many of us wish for the return of sunshine and warmth, winter can be a great time to dig into those projects we tend to put aside in the frantic summer and fall months’ influx of new students and new associates.
