Message from our current chapter chair Matt Shore President at StevenDouglas
Dear Palm Beach YPO,
It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our 2020-2021 year! Our theme this year is “A Year of Learning”. I chose this theme after reflecting on the primary reason I joined YPO and the tremendous opportunities the organization has provided for personal growth and development. I am hopeful that each aspect of the upcoming year helps you become a better leader, spouse, parent, and friend.
I am incredibly excited about the calendar that our new Education Officer, Summer Dennis, her Vice-Chair Jayson Dubin, and our Chapter Manager Sharon Guild have put together. As you can imagine, planning a Learning calendar in the face of COVID 19 has presented a unique set of challenges and we are having to re-imagine how to put on great YPO events while doing so in a safe way for our membership. Our team has been working on contingency planning to move our already planned events to outside venues and we will be putting appropriate safety protocols in place including requiring masks, social distancing, hand sanitizer, etc at each event. For those that are not comfortable going to an event, we will also be streaming them live through Zoom, so everyone can benefit from the great speakers we have lined up, in addition to continuing the virtual learning that is occurring throughout the summer. You will be hearing more from Summer as we solidify our new plans. I am hoping you will participate extensively, as I am highly confident you will get a tremendous amount from each time we get together as a Chapter.
Our membership is the heart of our chapter. With every interaction I have with each of you, I come away impressed and enlightened. I am confident that our new Membership Officer, Brad Sorte, will continue to build our chapter by adding outstanding new individuals to our midst. Please reach out to him directly if you know of potential candidates.
Lastly, I would encourage you all to complete the re-registration process. We understand that times are tough, but the sooner we can get commitments from members of the chapter, the sooner we can finalize our budget and move forward with our plans for a great calendar of events.
I am so excited to see all of you soon. If you have any questions, comments, or thoughts, please don’t hesitate to reach out at any time. Have a great Holiday weekend!
All the Best,
2020-2021 Chapter Chair
