Hello Sunshine District members. It is getting to be that time of year again….election of officers for the year 2015. Remember to start thinking now of those current officers who are able and willing to come back for another year and also think about replacements for those moving on. Ever think ¬†about training people as back-up to your current officer rosters…..those people who will learn the job from those already in that position ? It is for that reason that I am here to let all know, our next Leadership Academy is scheduled for January 9/10, 2015. Yes, you are seeing right, your Sunshine District Board voted to go back to a once-a-year format consisting of a weekend of fun.

Based upon class reviews from past leadership academies, some participants felt that there was not enough time to devote to the issues needed to be addressed. They felt that providing a weekend line-up would address those concerns. We therefore need your input. What classes are you willing to attend? Do you have ideas for class subject matter? What drives/motivates you? Any and all ideas need to be sent to me, care of my e-mail: mcgofftenor@centurylink.net.

As of this article, plans are being made for a location in the greater Orlando area. If you can not reach me, consider contacting someone else on your District Board. We are there for you.
