  • Be a respected leader by maintaining our Chapter’s reputation and leadership role within the ABC National system.
  • Provide for the highest practical level of service to our membership through exceptional oversight of chapter programming.
  • Provide for the future of the chapter and the industry by anticipating member needs and leading the development of creative solutions.
  • Provide strategic development and guidance by the organization, including identification of key issues, leading solutions development, and providing for board and membership leadership development.
