Greetings from B.A.D. President!
My short term goal is to prepare people to take the torch for the next part of our journey:
It is important to realize BAD will continue to carry on business and host social events for the next two years because we have loyal members working hard. Salute to them!!!
Secondly, we revised the By-Laws and passed them on November 3, 2012. Therefore, starting this year we have three Directors at Large working with parents, youth and senior citizens, instead of social directors and sport directors. This may help us include all age groups as we get together at all occasions.
Thirdly, I will encourage people to become familiar with being in charge of an event by joining committees. Let’s help them learn how to run an event. We want them to get experience as they will be our future leaders.
Lastly, my long term goal is to work on getting a place with storage where we can also hold our social events, meetings, other gatherings. We will continue to work on this matter.
Ken Roberts, B.A.D. President
