Where are You with Your 2016 Goals?
EDITOR IN CHIEF, O&MM FABRICATOR
that by the time you
will have read this message, we will be more
than half way through the year and summer
will have already started. In looking back
at my 2016 New Year's resolutions, I have
accomplished most of my goals, but there's
still some time to dig a little deeper and do
more with them. With barely five months left in
the year, I'm feeling the pressure (from myself )
to continue to work on my life balance, read
more, and learn more about this industry. I
think that last resolution will be on my "New
Year's resolutions" list for many, many years.
There's so much to learn, and I want to be
taught all that I can. If you made goals earlier
in the year that you are striving to reach for
yourself, your company, or both, I encourage
IT'S HARD TO BELIEVE
you to look back at those goals and analyze
where you are in the process of reaching them.
This would be a good time to refocus and/or
aim higher if you haven't already.
Speaking of accomplishing goals, a lot has
happened for NOMMA in the last six months;
a lot that NOMMA, its members and friends in
the industry can be proud of. METALfab 2016
was one of these accomplished goals, and
as you may have already learned, METALfab
2017 is gearing up to be one of NOMMA's best
shows yet as it will be co-locating with AFA's
FENCETECH in San Antonio, Texas.
NOMMA also launched a membership
drive and its new online Career Center in the
first half of the year. If you haven't already
checked out NOMMA's Career Center, you're

really missing out. It's full of opportunities
to find quality, skilled workers, the ability to
post job listings for your company, access
to career resources, and so much more. The
membership drive has also been a success
with the addition of newly-appointed David
Busarello as 2016-2017 membership chair and
the amount of new members who have joined
the NOMMA family. Thank you to those who
have already participated in the membership
drive! Your efforts are appreciated.
A lot of what life throws at us is out of our
control, but the amount of effort we put in to
the people we care about, the work we do, and
improving ourselves is fully in our control. If
you haven't put in the effort you think you could
have during the first half of 2016, don't worry;
just try again. I can't promise you tomorrow,
but I can encourage you to start the second
half of the year strong! Give every day the best
you've got. At the end of the day, you don't
know what kind of positive ripple effects you
can make in this world. So get out there and
make some ripples!
Until next time,
