2014 Small Business Workshop
Presentations from the 2014 Small Business Workshop are now available on our site.
had the privilege of attending the SAME National Small Business Conference
in Kansas City in November and can report that despite a year of constrained
spending and increased scrutiny on government travel, the conference was
very well attended and there were strong networking opportunities. Besides
the perfunctory presentations on federal programs, there were some
fascinating presentations on “avoiding design-build disasters”, and settling
disputes, claims and requests for equitable adjustments.
All of the presentations are posted on the national SAME site.
Since this is my last message of the year, I need to thank the many people who have made our post successful during my tenure as post president. The post directors – Clay Kelly, Marilyn Lewis and Rosemary Gilbertson – have been instrumental in constantly pushing the post in the right direction. Our vice-presidents – Lee Carolan and Ray Frye – have been key in keeping the daily and monthly business of running the post operating smoothly. I have been completely reliant on these individuals and am so humbled by their dedicated service and the time they invest to make our post successful.
I am also appreciative for the hard work and commitment shown by the Board of the Kentuckiana Post. Without them, our monthly programs, our outings, the sustainability workshop, STEM programs and scholarships would never occur. The board and our sustaining members are truly the lifeblood of our Post.
Finally, I’d like to thank Steve Skaggs. As past-president, Steve fully deserved a stress-free year; but he didn’t get it – he was pulling on the oars harder than ever and I’m most grateful for his efforts and for setting such a great example for all of us. I only hope I can be half as valuable to Lee as she takes on the role of Post President in the New Year.
Happy Holidays and I look forward to seeing you at our Small Business Conference on January 28th!
