Forrest E. Hoglund has enjoyed a distinguished career in the natural gas industry, including many years in top management with Exxon, Texas Oil and Gas and EOG Resources. He now serves as Chairman of the Board of Forest Oil Company and SeaOne Maritime Corporation. He and his wife Sally divide their time between Dallas and Houston. Since retiring from EOG Resources in 1999, he has become involved in many nonprofit and educational organizations, serving on the Endowment Association of the University of Kansas, where he earned the Distinguished Alumni Award, and as Past Chairman of the Board of Visitors of M.D. Anderson Hospital in Houston. He also served as Chairman of the Houston Museum of Natural Science. Currently, he is Chairman of the Leadership Capital Campaign for the Museum of Nature and Science in Dallas and Vice Chairman of Reasoning Mind, a web-based math program for middle school students. Together, Forrest and his wife Sally have chaired numerous fundraisers, capital campaigns, and galas, raising millions of dollars. His personal and professional values - a strong work ethic, integrity and a "can do" attitude - have helped shape The Hoglund Foundation (named Outstanding Foundation in 2005 by the Greater Dallas AFP) and its impact on the communities it serves. The members of the Hoglund family embrace these guiding principles as they continue their commitment to philanthropy.
My last column as your President is focused on a concept near and dear to my heart - Servant Leadership. The principles of servant leadership as defined by the Alliance for Servant Leadership are:
- Transformation as a vehicle for personal and institutional growth
- Personal growth as a route to better serve others
- Enabling environments that empower and encourage service
- Service as a fundamental goal
- Trusting relationships as a basic platform for collaboration and service
- Creating commitment as a way to collaborate activity
- Community building as a way to create environments in which people can trust each other and work together
- Nurturing the spirit as a way to provide joy and fulfillment in meaningful work
We are all - AFP Board and Membership - servant leaders by virtue of who we are and what we do on a daily basis. My journey with AFP has helped me grow personally and professionally in each of the above principles, and I hope each of you can say the same.
I want to thank you for allowing me to serve you all as President of the Association of Fundraising Professionals Greater Dallas Chapter. It was the role of the lifetime. Now please warmly welcome your 2013 AFP President Sue Bailey, the purest servant leader I have ever had the joy to encounter!
