By Gemma Houser, 2017 President

Wow! The summer heat has arrived and summer is in full force. I hope you all have some exciting summer plans. My oldest daughter is heading off to camp for the first time ever and I am so excited for her. My little one starts Kindergarten in August and I just can’t believe it.

I’m excited to announce that Jennifer Pinney with Bosco Construction is our new EBCA Vice President. Jennifer has been on the board for a few years now and has been such a great asset to us and she will do great in her new role. Liza Wisecarver from Brightleaf has also joined our board and I’m looking forward to having her as part of our team.

I hope you all enjoyed the June luncheon. A big thank you to Jane Massengil for her presentation. She had some great tips for dealing with difficult people. I’m sure we have all run into a situation where we could use the tips she gave us.
