As this year's Board Chair, I welcome our newest members from Class XLV and thank our fellow alumni that continue to support Leadership Corpus Christi Alumni Association by renewing your annual membership.
Our LCCA board of directors got off to a quick start in mid July with a board retreat that was facilitated by LCCA City Councilwoman Debbie Lindsey-Opal. Debbie did a fantastic job and helped us re-focus our thoughts and energy to ask ourselves many questions in order to determine what's important for the future of our organization... How can we build on the successes of our Association's past and make it even better?
Hurricane Harvey derailed us as a Board and much of our focus rightly shifted to take care of more pressing problems. Although some of our members are still in the process of trying to recover, now is the time to put on our hard hats and unite to make sure we take advantage of the opportunities that are ahead of us.
Your Board and Committee Chairs are working through a strategic planning process that uses our mission and vision statements to help us identify our critical issues and to better our organization. We are also strategizing on membership benefits and how we can expand our dues paying member base by re-engaging past LCC graduates who are not as engaged as we'd like. We invite and urge you to help us, so please let us know how you feel we can accomplish this together.
Stay tuned for fun upcoming events & activities:
- Class XLVI updates and other LCCA information!
- Merry Holidays Party in December.
- The 10th Annual Roast (HINT: It's not your ordinary roast this year...) right around the corner in February.
