Good afternoon all:
I know we’re all busy with our proms, weddings, and I’m sure we’re all going crazy with the US Open, but I just wanted to reach out to everyone to let you know what we’re doing. The Executive Board had its meeting last week and many topics were discussed old and new, and we’re excited of what we will be bringing to you at our next meeting the end of June.
As you all have said you wanted to have meetings closer to your base, obviously we can’t accommodate everyone, many said no Race Palace and others said no K.O.C, and some didn’t care either way, so what we’ve done is secured two venues for our meetings. We will be alternating meetings every month to help accommodate those who drive the distance. Our Nassau County meetings now will be held at the Westbury Manor 1100 Jericho Tpke, Westbury, NY 11590 and our Suffolk County meetings will be held at the Carleton Hall 103 Carleton Ave, East Islip, NY 11730, both of which will be serving food & beverages, in the event we have an issue with venues and dates we will advise members in advance. We do hope you all understand that we have members who also travel from out East, Northfork, Hampton Bays, Riverhead, etc. who also would like to attend and be part of these meetings. I understand not everyone can come to every meeting but at least now it’s made easier especially for those traveling from the QUEENS/Nassau borderline and the members from out East, you may recall years ago we had our meetings in Hauppauge and we had a packed room and traveling was not an issue, so let’s try and make this work.
The Board and I have been working on bringing in NEW Associate members in which will have an impact in your businesses, whether be credit card processing, insurance, DOT inspections, GPS, phone carriers, purchasing of equipment for your vehicles, and buying of new vehicles with incentives for Association members only. We are moving in the right direction and I’m happy to say our membership is growing with new members and also getting back the ones we lost a few years ago. This month our meeting will be held on June 26th 7pm at the Carleton Hall 103 Carleton Ave, East Islip, NY 11730, If you have any questions or concerns you would like to have addressed at that meeting, please email firstname.lastname@example.org so we may include in our agenda, if not, any questions/concerns brought forth will be tabled and brought back for discussion in our next General meeting, this will be done so meetings do not get out of control kept professional and also within a time frame. Remember POSITIVE CHANGE WILL ONLY COME WITH A POSITIVE ATTITUDE LETS ALL HELP WITH THE CHANGE! Again I just want to say THANK YOU to all of those members that have reached out to me these past few weeks offering their help and support and wanting to be a part of THE MOVING AHEAD PROCESS.
I look forward to seeing you on June 26th have a great week!
