President's Message

June 25, 2013 - Teamwork Makes a Great Chapter

We are so lucky to have a wonderful group of members who serve on our Richmond Chapter Board, and recently we have expanded the group to include three new chairs of chapter committees. 

  • Walt Arnold of Altria - Chair, Corporate Legal Administrators Committee (CLAC)
  • Cherie Heintz of Hunton & Williams - Chair, Community Connections Committee
  • DJ Geiger of the Virginia Indigent Defense Commission  - Chair CLM Study Group

We already had a fantastic board, and these folks are making us even stronger.  The board has divided into sub-groups to prepare for our annual planning meeting in August.  At that time each sub-group will present their recommendations for educational programs, meeting venues and changes and improvements to our business partner program.   We hope all of our members will feel free to contact any board member and share their thoughts and suggestions for improving our chapter.  Together, we can make this one of the best chapter's in the country....maybe THE best!

April 1, 2013 - Welcome to Spring and to Your New Board

It has been a wonderful year serving as President of the Richmond Chapter.  I am looking forward to another exciting year ahead and I hope all of you are.  We are fortunate to have a wondeful group of administrators as members, fantastic business partners and a whole new board to lead the way.  Please visit the Chapter Officers page to see who our 2013-14 board members are.  Feel free to contact any of us if you have questions or suggestions for improving the chapter.  Remember, we are always looking for more people to get involved.  So, if you would like to serve on a committee, please contact any board member to let us know how you want to help.

March 15, 2013 - Another Great Virginia Statewide Retreat

Just when you think it can't get any better, there they go again.  The 2013 Statewide Retreat Committee did it again.  We had a wonderful weekend at Kingsmill Resort last week.  Check out our chapter Facebook page to see the pictures we have received, and please feel free to add your own.  Can't wait to go to next year's retreat!
