President's Message

There is good news to share! Sales activity is rebounding to record heights in our market and the nation seems to be getting close to good treatment options for COVID-19! I hope you and your business are doing well and you are staying safe.

Please congratulate our newly-elected 2021 NABOR® President, Corey McCloskey, and the entire slate of 2021 officers and directors. We look forward to an exciting year ahead with our 2021 Board. I encourage you to join a 2021 NABOR® Committee and become more involved with an exceptional group of members.

October marks the beginning of the last quarter of my term as President of NABOR®. It has been an unprecedented year and one in which all members have adapted to virtual meetings, conferences and training. I applaud everyone for meeting the challenges of working and living in this pandemic environment. Best wishes for success in the upcoming quarter.

Lauren Melo, President
