A Message from Outgoing President Margaret Hentz
Hello fellow Heartland indexers,
As outgoing Senior Co-President of the chapter, I would like to thank all of you who have participated in our various chapter activities and attended our meetings. I want to extend special thanks to Meridith who volunteered to be Junior Co-President for 2 terms and planned great programs during that time. We wouldn’t have such a great chapter without our other officers—Cherry Delaney, Secretary and Mary Johnson, Treasurer.
Carol Reed, Laura Ewald, Paula McCoy, and Shelley Quattrocchi have turned our website into a vibrant source of news about our chapter. In addition, Carol has diligently produced extremely informative and professional looking newsletters which help keep us connected despite our geographically dispersed locations. Hats off to others who have contributed to the chapter during the years. It is invigorating and intellectually stimulating to be a member of this chapter. I have always come away from our meetings with new indexing techniques to try and a renewed enthusiasm about indexing as a career.
As I look back over the last couple of years, we as a chapter can be proud of our accomplishments. We celebrated our 20th anniversary as a chapter, held two great meetings a year, produced informative newsletters, redesigned our website, uplifted our publicity brochure, and revised our Policies and Procedures Manual. I am confident that Meridith and Sue Klefstad, incoming Junior Co-President will lead the chapter to new heights.
