Great Organizations Are Made Up Of Great People

Do you know the salary for being a CALSPro board member? You guessed it — a whopping $0.00. Now, consider the average income our board members make as business owners and managers. To be fair, we shouldn’t consider big shots like Mike Kern in the average but I’m talking about us mere humans…
But seriously, our Board is comprised of some of the top talent in our industry and we are all volunteering our time to support the association. My hat is off to each volunteer that helps keep this association running smoothly.
That being said, I want to point out a few people that have made a significant impact this year so far:
Did you think we have forgotten about our Photocopy Industry members? No way! Tom has been working behind the scenes with a group of industry veterans to review all facets of the subpoena and authorization code sections. Once complete, his team will present their recommendations to the CALSPro Board of Directors so they can make their way through the legislative process.
From what I’ve seen so far, this will be the single most important review of the photocopy codes since their inception in the 1980’s. Please let Tom know if you have any input that can benefit the industry.
For organizing a team to update the CCPS materials and to host the first seminar of 2018 in San Jose. The CCPS program is one of our most valuable assets and Andrew has a plan to make the program more accessible than ever.
For being on just about every committee there is AND publishing the finest newsletter in the industry. Great content. Great layout. All that, plus being on time. They say if you want something done, give it to a busy person — that person is Anita. David Nill you have a jewel on your hands with Anita.
For his countless hours of hard work coordinating the annual membership renewal campaign. Without Kristian’s effort and leadership, we would be in a desperate situation for members. Thankfully, he was able to muscle his way to adding about 20 new members already this year. We have a long way to go before we hit our target of 50 but Kristian is the right man at the helm to see us to our goal.
For his nearly daily effort to keep the website updated with relevant content. If you aren’t subscribed to the blogs, you are missing out on one of the greatest benefits we offer our members today.
It’s always a risk when you make a list like this that I have forgotten someone. Let me just say to the rest of the volunteers, that you are not forgotten. I appreciate each of you individually and will recognize your efforts publicly at another time.
