A Word from the Chair - June 2014
On to St. Louie, Louie!!! The Hyatt Regency at the Arch in St. Louis, MO will serve as our next conference site on April 6-8, 2016. The Committee has been appointed under the leadership of Cam Kelly. Many new and exciting plans are already underway, so mark your calendars and plan to be with us.
We are thrilled by the overwhelming response to our call for State Agents to monitor legislative and regulatory issues in each state. This is crucial to the work of the State Regulations Committee. The earlier we can become involved in the legislative and regulatory process when changes and modifications are being considered, the better our opportunity to influence appropriate consumer protection. In this newsletter, there is an opportunity for you to become involved as a State Agent for your state. Look for your opportunity to join the posse.
Finally, remember that promoting responsible philanthropy is only a phrase until you and your associates put the principles and best practices to work in your program. All that ACGA does is to build the framework for you to be successful and responsible in dealing with the “publics” you serve. Do let me know of any additional ways we can help you in the future.
President and Chairman of the Board
