Fellow UCCTU Members:

My two year term as Chapter President will end at this month’s meeting.  I’ve been honored to serve you.  At Saturday’s Georgia Council meeting, Chairman Mack Martin reported that National has re-chartered us for another 4 years; so we are a Chapter in good standing.    One of my first acts as President was to revise the format of our annual fundraiser, “Autumn on the River”.  This year we hold the second one which will again combine auctions with the best films from the Fly Fishing Film Tour.  Please plan on attending October 28 here at Ippolito’s.  Next, I’m pleased that we completed the transition to multi-user  e-mail and website platforms.  The universal access to these systems,  for Chapter leaders, facilitates communications and makes volunteer service much easier.  Finally, I will leave with a great and complete leadership team in place to carry the Chapter’s mission forward.  I won’t name specific names because space is limited.  But each of our officer/committee chairs is doing a great job with their respective programs giving us the greatest breadth I have seen.  Please support them with your dues and volunteer hours.  I will continue to serve UCCTU and the other Georgia TU Chapters having accepted the 2nd Vice Chairman position on the Georgia Council.

Thanks to all of you for your support,
