Chapter members and their guests turned out for an evening honoring the retiring officers and directors, congratulating the newly elected officers and Board members, and enjoying the endless parade of Brazilian-style meats delivered right to their plates! Unfortunately, several honorees were forced to cancel at the last minute due to unforeseen emergencies arising throughout the afternoon prior to the event.
Business Administration Manager Miki Craig stepped in on behalf of Retiring President Ash Wear to open the installation portion of the program, acknowledge the 2022-2023 officers, directors, Committee Chairs, and staff for their hard work and commitment during Ash's term, and present each of them with a small gift in appreciation. She noted a formal presentation acknowledging Preident Wear's service would be made at the September dinner meeting event as he was unable to attend this evening's event. She summarized her remarks with the introduction of incoming President Carolyn Phillips and the traditional "passing of the gavel".
President Phillips named the 2023-2024 officers and directors who will serve with her, and outlined her goals for the coming year. She is looking for consistent participation from those who volunteered to serve in Board and Committee positions, as well as improving participation at monthly dinner events. Her theme for this administrative term is "Make ACI Great Again"!
The Chapter would like to thank Pampas Brazilian Steakhouse and the staff for a truly magnificent dinner, attentive service, and an enjoyable evening! We can't wait to come back!
