President's Message

Happy holidays to everyone! As one who likes pretty things and shiny objects, I enjoy all of it, red and green, blue and silver, black and red and green, candles, doing good deeds, wrapping paper, old friends, family, lights—even the flash of a metal Festivus pole.

Please help spread the wordthe December Virtual Chapter meeting is open to all NAPO members at no cost to guests (usually a $25 cost). It is a free CEU (if it qualifies for you)! The meeting topic is "The Power of Photos in Your Social Media" presented by Dana Nelson. We are all looking to maximize our social media efforts both for our businesses and for the VC. 

Any guest who attends the December meeting and joins the Virtual Chapter during December will be entered into a contest to win a free membership for 2019. Please help get this good news out!

Yes, we have an initiative to increase VC membership. Any ideas that you have to increase membership and continue to strengthen our chapter are welcome! 

Looking forward to "seeing" you at the next meeting.

June Carter, GYST* Solutions
President, NAPO Virtual Chapter
