The CEO Report
Fall is in the air (or as my son calls it, 'fools gold' in Sacramento, because we're really in second summer lol), but it is my favorite time of year. The travel gears up for my position, and I've had great opportunities the past couple of weeks to engage with staff and membership across the state. Jerry and I travelled to PHCC San Diego to attend their fantastic tradeshow, and the energy was so high... I think everyone is just 'shot out of a cannon' to get to spend time with each other again. Great job Taylor, Noemy, Juri and the PHCC of San Diego Board of Directors, for a well-attended and exciting event!
I also took a tour around the Bay, and attended a lovely dinner meeting connecting with old friends and making new ones the PHCC of the Redwood Empire, and also attended a wonderful party to celebrate Chris Bonetti's retirement. Many of you know Chris, she has served our association for over 26 years, and the room was packed with family (because to PHCC of Alameda, EVERYONE related to PHCC is family), and she received an outpouring of love and respect. Her husband, Ray Bonetti of Frank Bonetti Plumbing, Inc. put together an amazing slideshow, you can find it here.
Please take a moment and wish Chris well, you can email her at firstname.lastname@example.org or email me at email@example.com, and I'll make sure she gets the message. Krystle Reddoch is now serving PHCC of Alameda and Contra Costa Counties as their Executive Manager, you can reach her at firstname.lastname@example.org. She is a fantastic Exec, and human; make sure you get to know her! To see photos from these great events, search PHCC of California on Facebook, Instagram, or myself on LinkedIn.
Our President, Cheryl Mosier, Ed Foundation Administrator Jerry Threlfall, our CAPHCC Board Member (and past CAPHCC and NAPHCC President) Patrick Wallner, and I will be reconnecting with the PHCC National group at PHCC CONNECT 2022 next week, and visiting with our own local and state staff and members, as well as PHCC Contractors and Executive Directors from across this great country. You still still be able to reach me at 916-599-1816 or email@example.com, but it may take a minute :) We'll be attending the NAPHCC Board of Directors Meeting, some great seminars and events, and posting nonstop, but I'll also report back when I return.
I love conventions... it's an experience you don't want to miss. There are so many opportunities that pop up, to make connections with people that care about the industry as much as we do, learn ways to improve ourselves and our businesses and most of all... just have that 'moment'... connecting with our people and creating memories that will last a lifetime. For those of you who are attending CONNECT, I'm so looking forward to seeing you.
We are in final contract negotiations for our next PHCC WEST Conference in Anchorage Alaska, in the last week of April in 2023. Mark your calendars, PHCC WEST 2023 will be an experience not to be missed!
Wishing you all the best! Tracy
