@MPIGNY- Summer 2013 - (Page 5)

OW! What a year it has been, and I think perhaps the best part is that I have
been given the extraordinary gift of an additional six months as president. I want
to say thank you to the 2012-2013 Board of Directors for their service last year,
along with their friendship, support and, most importantly, the trust they placed in me to lead
At the Genies in June, I gave out President’s Awards to Jim Alkon, Carvie Gillikin and
Robert Sanders in appreciation for their dedication and commitment to raising the bar and
building a stronger foundation. A very wise woman told me to have the courage to surround
myself with greatness and great things will happen. I do not think I could have asked for
three better men to help me build a GREATER New York. Without them, this year would not
have been as successful, and I am grateful for the perspective and wisdom they provided time
and time again.
And with the 2013-2014 Board of Directors, Carvie and I are upping the ante. This
dynamic group of professionals who took office on July 1 are some of the best of the best.
I made a promise to them when they came on board, and today I make the same promise to
you. My commitment remains to provide valuable, best-in-class experiences every chance
we get, and I will keep the membership in mind first and foremost as we make the critical
business decisions to run this business effectively, remaining steadfast in ensuring that
MPIGNY is an engaging community.
We are embarking on a powerful year, and I hope you make the time to actively participate.
I can confidently say that the benefits of membership are good right now, but we are striving
