President's Message
Dear Coaches!
As we begin the season of gratitude and giving, I am reminded of all
the wonderful things happening with the NYC Chapter. I can't believe  2018 is almost over, and what a year it has been. As I reflect on my  first year as president, what comes to mind the most are the people  in this community of which I am honored to be a part. Many thanks to  our Board for their ongoing support, chapter commitment and tremendous  talents. And huge thanks to our committee members - they've raised the chapter's excitement level - and most of all, thanks to YOU , our members.

It was wonderful to see so many of you at the Holiday Party. Enjoying the evening with you made it a very special evening. A special thank you to Susan Ginsberg-O'Sullivan and her committee for their pre-work and planning for this wonderful evening, celebrating 2018 and kicking off the holidays.
