President's Message - October

A Sincere Thank You from your new(ish) OBOA President and Board -

It is already October and time has truly flown since our Annual Business Meeting in Sunriver July 31- August 1. I just wanted to say thank you for your support and the enthusiasm of the membership. I enjoy the communication and comments that come in and your OBOA Board and I hope we can live up to expectations.

Our new newsletter will be a monthly feature and we are working on formatting items that we may regularly include. The purpose of the newsletter is to be short and concise enough you will want to read it. It is also intended to contain useful information and keep you informed of what your OBOA Board is up to. Any suggestions from membership to that end are welcome as I am sure I the newsletter will evolve over time.

I like to thank our vendors, sponsors, and sister organizations who attended our ABM and made it a success. I also want to thank WABO President Ray Allshouse and First Vice president Kurt Aldworth for their attendance.  I attended their ABM a few weeks prior to ours and was met with a sincere and warm welcome. It was an honor to have them attend our ABM and I look forward to the shared special relationship reset that has started. The link to WABO’s ABM with photos and their President’s report is here. 

It was also an honor to have my good friend and your ICC Board Member and Oregon Liaison Jim Sayers do the swearing in.  Jim voice on the ICC Board as well as Chris Ochoa’s as our regional Government Relations Rep serve our Association well.

We are working on the social media aspect of communicating with membership, so be sure to sign up to our Facebook Page . Look for our future Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram accounts coming soon!
