President’s Message

As we approach another year’s end, things can get hectic at work with trying to close out files, set final reserves, etc. That frenzied pace may also show up in our personal lives with decorating our homes, gift buying/wrapping, holiday parties, plans for a holiday feast, etc. It’s sometimes hard to take the time to reflect on the past year and make plans for next year, but I encourage you all to do so. What was accomplished this year, what could I have done better or differently, and what do I plan to do in the coming year? Also, the coming holidays bring opportunities to show those we love and care about how much they mean to us. It’s easy to overlook these opportunities with all the things going on in our lives.

I want to thank the Association Members for placing their trust in me this year as President of Southern Loss Association, and thank all who served with me on the Board, as Volunteers, and in all other capacities that are too numerous to list. It has been a pleasure and honor to serve, and I am looking forward to continue serving in my new position as Past President on the 2020 Board.

As a reminder, we will be “passing the hat” at our Christmas Luncheon to collect donations for our selected charities as we normally do, so remember to bring cash if you wish to make a contribution to the Salvation Army and Shriners Hospital for Children. Both of these are worthy causes the SLA supports.

I hope to see you all at our Christmas luncheon on December 12!

Kind regards,


Bill Cartwright
