Welcome to the start of the NHAPL's 2017-2018 year. I am excited and honored to serve as your association President and look forward to getting to know more of you, and your interests, in this coming year.
This is an important time to be a member of the NHAPL as we continue to regain momentum from the industry decline just a few years ago. My personal thanks and appreciation go to Andrew Cooper, our immediate Past President for his leadership over the last year. The 2016-2017 year was vital in strengthening our network of legal and land professionals in North Houston. With our recent crawfish boil, our newly improved newsletters, our generous increase in charitable contributions, and implementing a new "News and Notes" feature at each luncheon, we are more capable of keeping you, our membership, more well connected.
I am also thankful for both the Board of Directors in their guidance and our exceptional sponsors for their support throughout the past year. We are eager to again work with you and offer more enhanced, prominent marketing opportunities for you and your generous contributions. Without our sponsors, we would be unable to provide excellent seminars, luncheons, and venues for our professional development.
My hope for the year is that you, as members, will gain a high quality of value from your membership and that we, as a Board, will provide you with a variety of opportunities to interact with industry leaders across North Houston and elsewhere. As the industry continues to rebound, there is no better time to expand your network and involvement within the association than right now.
I welcome your thoughts, suggestions, and input on how we can strengthen and align the NHAPL for the coming year. As always, feel free to email me at any time. On behalf of the Board and the NHAPL, we welcome you to the 2017-2018 year. Please take a look at our Fall calendar and sign-up today for the September luncheon as we begin an exciting new year.
