President's Message
It’s hard to believe that there are only 85 days left in 2019!! Despite the Texas heat hanging around, the fall season is in full swing and brings lots of opportunities to get involved. 

September had a full calendar of events, including the ‘Future of Transportation’ luncheon, Mentoring Program kick-off, and Annual Golf Tournament. Many thanks go out to those who worked tirelessly for more than a year to bring our Mentoring Program to fruition, as well as to those who planned, sponsored, and attended this year’s golf tournament. I am consistently amazed by our chapter’s ability to produce such engaging and valuable experiences.

The fun is just getting started! Soon we’ll be seeking your nominations for next spring’s annual banquet award recipients and Board of Directors candidates (2020-2021). So be sure to keep an eye on your inbox. Your input and involvement is what makes this chapter so unique. 

Stay Tuned,

Adrienne Williams
President, Greater Dallas/Fort Worth Chapter
