CID President's Final Goodbye

MEaton Final Goodbye

2017 has been a great year. Our sponsors are amazing, and I hope all our members support them as they have supported us. We had tremendous success with the Economic Forecast in October with over a 15% increase in attendance and sponsorships. We, also, had an amazing turnout for our 2 partnered socials with CCIM, Urban Land Institute and Women’s Council of Realtors. If you have a recommendation on how to improve these items or anything else please do not hesitate to give the board your input or better yet join a committee.

Throughout the long and difficult period of my reign I have felt it was my duty to make every possible effort to hold on to power for as long as I could. In the past few months, 11 to be exact, it has become evident to me that I no longer have a strong enough base on the board to overthrow the majority.

I would have preferred to carry through smiting my enemies and watch them grovel at my feet. My family unanimously urged me to do so, but the interests of the organization must always come before my personal satisfaction.

Therefore, I shall resign my presidency effective December 31st at midnight.

In passing this office to the Vice President, Cres Gardner, I do so with a profound sense of joy knowing that he will not be able to take credit for a previous president’s work as I have so elegantly done.

All joking aside, as I alluded to in the beginning, member participation has been at an all time high. We have more members applying for scholarships to better improve their careers and to be on this board to improve our business. It is wonderful to see our commercial community coming together to better improve our lives and our business.

Being involved in CID not only helps your industry, but will ultimately help your career. By forming a stronger bond with your colleagues deals will become smoother and negotiations easier. As I have said before, the relationships you form, HERE, WILL help your career… I promise. It has been an honor and a privilege to serve all of you. I hope I didn’t let you down and keep this train moving forward.
