ACP North Texas Members,

As I reflect on the conclusion of my three-year tenure as President, I am filled with both humility and pride. The journey has been marked by challenges that tested our resolve and moments of triumph that underscored the strength of our collective efforts. 
Taking the helm in January 2021, we were well into the unchartered territory of the global pandemic. Its impact was profound, reaching into the core of the companies we represent and affecting many within our industry. Membership dwindled as colleagues faced job losses, and companies tightened their belts on professional affiliations. In-person gatherings became a distant memory, and our once-accessible conference rooms were off-limits. It was a trying period not just for our chapter, but for non-profits nationwide.

However, in the face of adversity, our chapter embraced creativity and innovation. Swiftly adapting to virtual meeting capabilities, we ensured our monthly meetings persisted. Outreach to conferences resulted in exclusive discounts for our members. The initiation of the Booth in a Box (BIB) project allowed us to showcase a professional booth at conferences, elevating our brand awareness. We broadened our Academia and Community engagements, incorporated Risk and Cyber Security presentations to enrich our members' knowledge, established the Chapter Think Tank to address pressing topics, and provided more avenues for member involvement. 

These endeavors were not merely strategies; they were reflections of our collective resilience and passion. As a professional community, we confronted challenges head-on, generating recommendations and implementing solutions. The term "resilience" to us is not a mere word; it is a living, breathing ethos that defines us. 

On a personal note, I take immense pride in the accomplishments we've achieved over our 37-year history. While my role as President concludes, I am thrilled to transition into a new capacity as a member of the Board, continuing to contribute to the chapter's growth. 

This journey has reaffirmed that nothing is insurmountable when surrounded by individuals who share the same commitment. I extend my heartfelt gratitude to all those who have played a role in our success—past, present, and future. 

It brings me great joy to declare that we remain the largest ACP Chapter in the U.S. This distinction is not a stroke of luck but a testament to our unwavering commitment and collective efforts. I express my personal and profound gratitude for the steadfast support I have received while serving as the caretaker of this remarkable chapter. Together, we have achieved greatness, and I look forward to witnessing the continued prosperity of the ACP – North Texas Chapter. 

As we start December, I wish each of you a Blessed, Safe, and Happy Holiday season surrounded by friends and family, generating a lifetime of lasting memories.
