September President's Letter

Mon, September 30, 2013 12:40 PM | Grace Judson

Greetings, and happy Autumn to you all! 

(Yes, it's really hard to believe, but the year is officially 3/4 over...)

And that means ... Chapter Members, it's time for you to vote for the 2014 Board. It only takes a moment - so please click here to register YOUR vote.

Are you a marketing expert - or do you know someone who is?

We're seeking an experienced marketing consultant who knows how to help nonprofit professional organizations reach a wider audience and demonstrate the value we bring to our community.  Click here to download the RFP.  And please forward this information on to any marketing experts you may know, in San Diego or elsewhere.

Did you know that many Chapter members get jobs and business... by being involved in the Chapter as a volunteer?

We're putting together teams and committees to help in many areas through the end of this year and into 2014. There are opportunities in many areas - Membership, Marketing, Events - and all of them provide valuable experience you can include on your resume or in your website bio.

Interested? Send me an email and we'll talk about what options will fit best with your goals!  (

See you in October at the PEAK awards!

Volunteers of the Month: The YTTL Conference Team

As you know, we chose not to have a Conference this year.

Yet we had a dedicated team of volunteers working almost up to the last moment. I can safely say that, because of their hard work, it would have been a great conference.

Please join me in thanking them for their hard work!

Jane Gredvig & Teresa Hanley - conference co-chairs
