Hi to all,
Just a quick update on this evenings festivities in Orlando.
We had over 50 NACHI members at this event tonight and discussed getting the FL state chapter of NACHI out of the doldrums.
The topics discussed tonight were mostly based around what we need to do to help our members become compliant with the licensing which comes into effect in 2010, more info on our plans later.
Those assembled were happy to see NACHI taking an active role in the enactment of the bill and were unanimous in supporting the goals of FLNACHI.
Forming FLNACHI as its own non-profit (with Nicks encouragement)
Setting up regional chapters within the state
Offering more educational events around the state
Getting a legislative position together
Planning a strategy to liaise with the state
Forming a board of directors
On the last note, the initial board (serving until 2008 elections)
Greg Bell: President
Zoe Flackler: Vice present
Mike Zwerin: Sec/Tres
Gerry Beaumont: Education
Jay Schwartz: Legislation
Plus all 6 regional chapter presidents
We will shortly be electronically polling the full membership to see what else we can be doing to help them meet their needs
Lots more to talk about, but it’s way past my bedtime and I have a plane to catch tomorrow, here’s some pics
Thanks to all who attended
