A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT

Change, Reflection And Thanksgiving

OCTOBER 2020. grat·i·tude — The quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness —

It is the season of change; of slowing down, reflection and giving thanks. Even though we may forget from time to time about how much we have, this is the season to sit back to reflect and be grateful.

Our communities have been stretched to the limits as so many families struggle to meet day-to-day needs and grapple with decisions that they would not have given a second thought a few months ago.

As I reflect on these past few months, I am grateful for family, for good friends, for a job that allows me to be productive and contribute in a meaningful way. I am thankful for the opportunity to give back, learn and lead exceptional teams!

This month's monthly meeting will focus on Servant-Leadership. In my journey, I have learned that If you want to be a servant leader, it starts with self-awareness, which begins with understanding your heart.

I encourage each of you to take some time and examine your heart this month. What gives you joy? From where do you find peace? How are you contributing to a better tomorrow?

I hope everyone had a happy and safe Thanksgiving weekend and look forward to seeing you at this month's meeting.

Until then, be safe!

—Ranjini
