President’s Podium - December 2014

Merry Christmas    Happy Hanukah    Happy Kwanzaa

Good Tidings    Happy Holidays

For whichever holiday you celebrate, or for those of you who just enter the winter season, may your days be cheerful and full of family, friends and good food! Take the time to think of those less fortunate and if you have an opportunity, donate your time or talent (or bring an unwrapped toy to the Holiday Party on December 9 for Toys4Tots). As a reminder, the holiday party is a week away – be sure to register in advance!!

I want to take a moment to remind you that KCIFMA exists to provide programs and education to our members. We have great committees who work diligently to provide monthly programs and ad hoc events that will appeal to your interests, but are ALWAYS interested in your ideas. Please email programs@kcifma.com with any thoughts and suggestions you may have. Tours, educational opportunities, expert panels…anything you would like to see happen or learn more about is fair game.

It’s also getting to the time of year to think about scholarships. Are you or one of your children attending college to get a degree related to FM? Apply for a KCIFMA scholarship and get help with the costs. Are you trying to attain your SFP, FMP, or CFM? Apply for a KCIFMA scholarship and remove some of the burden. We raise money every year at our annual golf tournament for this specific purpose. Don’t be shy – apply!
