The Executive Board and I thank you for your support to the chapter for 2012 and 2013. Phyllis, Cayla and I wish each one you continuous success throughout the year!
I would like to humbly thank each of you for supporting the current administration. It is with your support that The Washington, DC Chapter, The ROCKS, Inc. a 501 c (3) organization will continue to grow and follow the National motto of "concern, dedication and professionalism." In addition, it helps us to help others. The goal of this administration is to provide “mentorship” at every meeting, outreach and social event. Providing leadership and organization in all facets will be two objectives of this administration. We have established additional family programs to include visits to the White House with our family members.
The four major signature events are the National Joint Spring Gala (13 APR 13) (SAT), Golf Tournament (8 JUN 13) (SAT) (with a Day Party and Sponsoring Wounded Warriors), 5 Mile Run and 2 Mile Walk (21 SEP 13) (SAT) and the West Hamilton Dinner (2 NOV 13) (SAT) will stand and we plan to support them to the fullest.
The events directly support the chapter and cadets at the Senior and Junior Army ROTC levels. We will also support other socials as they are planned. We will have a yearly calendar that list all events. In honor of the ideals and vision of Brigadier General Roscoe C.”ROCK” Cartwright, we will continue the legacy of making a difference. We will continue to build a bench while reaching for the top.
Our goals for 2013 are to increase and expand the chapter membership to 250 (198 members now), to have each member on at least one committee, continue to conduct outreach to local Colleges and Universities in the National Capital Region, update the current members plan, fill all vacancies for Executive Board and Committee Chairs, continue to improve the chapter's website and software tool thru clubexpress.com, hold all meetings at the same location, and conduct one community service project every six months. We are also continuing our CFC efforts. We applied and was accepted for CFC in 2012 with the number of 76674..
We are counting on your time and talent as we continue to move this chapter "FORWARD" and as we celebrate 39 years with The ROCKS, Inc. I can be reached at (910) 824-1911 or firstname.lastname@example.org for questions or concerns.
