A fond farewell from John
Change is always upon us – seasons, times, fashions, and opportunities. For me there has been a recent change in employment opportunity, which means that for the CYCA, there is a change in leadership. It’s with sadness that I resign as CYCA President as I move to a new city.
It seems like only yesterday I moved to CY and soon thereafter joined the board of the CYCA. In that time I’ve had the chance to see the organization grow in leaps and bounds. Our membership rolls continue to grow, new membership benefits are available, and we purchased our building.
It’s been a personal honor to have led our organization in various roles over the past several years. It’s refreshing to join an organization and not be pigeonholed as the Treasurer simply because I’m a CPA. Our organization is wonderful in letting people expand their talents and abilities.
Vice President June Hurt has stepped into the role of President. Under her leadership I’m sure the CYCA will continue to prosper and be a force in keeping Cooper-Young the coolest neighborhood in Memphis. I wish everyone the best as life continues to change.
