Before I even joined CALSPro, I remember hearing stories about CAPPS group campouts, rafting trips and other organized social activities. Those were the good old days when the Area Governor program was in full swing.
Times changed and the Area Governors faded into memories. Fast forward to July 2017 and our strategic planning meeting. Our leaders felt that our future depended on renewing some of the best parts of our past. Blammo! The Area Governor program was raised from the ashes.
Since the fall of 2017, we have had area governors assigned to all regions in California and even a governor for our out-of-state Associate members. While I don’t foresee monthly meetings happening again, I do see the benefit of having a governor each member can contact if they need assistance. Some of the governors have taken the program farther and organized picnics and trips to sporting events. If you subscribe to the CALSPro Facebook page you will have seen the recent posting from an LA Dodgers game. How fun is that?!
Area governors are posted on the website under the leadership tab. Contacting your governor is as easy as clicking on their name and sending an email. https://calspro.org/area-governors/
