FROM THE EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE

Annie Caillouet

 

We often hear people say, “May is such a busy month!”  With Mothers’ Day, high school & college graduations, the close of the school year and Memorial Day to wrap things up, we are often in a space of celebration and honor – looking to what’s next on life’s journey.  As we gleefully prepare for a relaxing summer vacation get-a-way, we also get to reflect on how well we have played the game for the first half of 2017.  Have we achieved the goals that we set for ourselves at the beginning of the year?  If so, how can we best use that momentum to continue propelling us forward and through the remainder of the year?  If we’ve fallen short of our goals, we get to assess the “how” and “why” so that we may re-direct our words and habits towards successful goal attainment.  We may also choose to forfeit those goals no longer conducive to our desires, while committing ourselves to new ones more fully aligned with our course trajectory.

 

Like so many who celebrate and eagerly await the next chapter, we revel during the month of May, knowing how we have persevered through many cold and rainy days to get to where we are right now.  So, with every blooming rosebush and those lingering scents of magnolia, jasmine and honeysuckle, we find ourselves thankful and satisfied in our achievement and success.  Our senses now awaken us to the possibilities of tomorrow, and we become re-energized and excited for what we will achieve before the year’s end.  Will we seek to learn a new skill or obtain a certification?  How will we be better leaders: in our homes; in our workplace; in our community?  What will motivate us to stay committed to our goals and dreams?  From whom will we learn something new and innovative in our careers?  How will we positively influence our peers and encourage them towards greatness?  Does “the next step” involve becoming a member of the LAPL Executive Committee??

 

If that last possibility perhaps piques your interest, we hope that you’ll consider becoming a part of the slate of candidates seeking to lead our LAPL organization in the upcoming cycle.  The following positions are up for election: 1st Vice President, 2nd Vice President, Treasurer, LAPL Director (2) and AAPL Director.  Ballots will be going out soon, so if you’re eager to be a part of the executive team, please contact Pete Van Der Veldt (337-281-6259) to submit your nomination.

 

And as we look to what’s next on our journey, “May” we always be kind, always be learning, and always be striving for greatness! in our careers?  How will we positively influence our peers and encourage them towards greatness?  Does “the next step” involve becoming a member of the LAPL Executive Committee??
