PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE  –  JANUARY 2023

Happy New Year Shipmates,
I hope ya’ll are doing well and were able to spend quality time with friends and family. The chapter is excited for the year to come and we are continuing our service to others as well as our chapter.
Our Outstanding Breakfast Speaker Series continues this coming Friday so please mark it on your calendar and join. Joining us is Lieutenant General John E. Wissler, USMC (Ret.), ’78, Distinguished Chair of Leadership, VADM Stockdale Center for Ethical Leadership.
Committees and a Request:
– In the new year, I intend to establish a Strategic Plan Committee to thoroughly review the Chapter’s current plan and to recommend any modifications. As you know, the Strategic Plan is the foundational document on which we base our annual activities and budget.
– We also plan to re-establish the Activities Committee that will solicit Chapter members for activity suggestions and ensure we have a member-developed, robust events program. We encourage you to join or chair one of these committees and ensure your voice (and others’) is heard. Serving on a committee allows additional Chapter members, besides the Chapter Officers and Council, to actively get involved and make a difference. Please contact me at rdreeke@gmail.com for more information or to serve.”
– Membership: Please ensure you are paid up for this year’s membership. Also, please reach out to shipmates who might need a friendly nudge to join as well. We continue to have a thriving speaker series as well as support for multiple Veteran and USNA programs that our membership dues generously support.
Speakers: We are always interested in hosting inspiring speakers for our monthly breakfast / speaker series. The new year is wide open… Please reach out to me and let me know if you or someone you know would like to share.
Please continue to check the website for any updates and information or simply reach out to me.
My very best wishes for a healthy and prosperous New Year and I look forward to seeing ya’ll at our breakfasts,
Semper Fi and Beat Army,
Robin Dreeke, ’92
President, Quantico USNAAA
