May President's Letter: What a Wild Year!

May 6, 2021

What a wild year!  It seems that demand for products and services is extremely high! I hope you and your business have been able to capitalize on these demands. It's pretty surreal to sit back and think what the world was like a year and a few months ago - and how it is now.  

Be sure and make your FNGLA Annual Convention registration and hotel reservation if you haven’t yet! The Embassy Suites on St. Augustine Beach is a great location. The newly remodeled hotel creates the perfect setting to have a fun and eventful FNGLA Convention you just do not want to miss!  As one of our industry’s first in-person events, the FNGLA Convention will be a great place to network and learn about what’s happening within our Association and industry.

Since this is one of my final columns in FNGLA’s Greenline, I wish to thank you and all of our members for the opportunity to serve as your President.

Albeit a very different year, I have thoroughly enjoyed this opportunity.

I’m very excited about the next group of volunteer FNGLA leaders who will be elected during next month’s Convention. I am very confident in their abilities to lead our terrific Association.

The FNGLA team is always hard at work for our membership. I’m very thankful we have dedicated members who recognize FNGLA’s everyday importance to us all.
