2007 DE-MD-DC Division Annual Meeting

Well, I know Pride.. can be a sin.. but.. can one be PROUD?

My chaptermates for IAAP have worked long and hard– and including our fantastic Associate Members… getting us ready for the big meeting weekend.

One of the skills that has emerged– and I’d say, for the majority of us, is a finely-honed skill of detail management and time management.

We all have busy lives, caring for children, grandchildren, parents — or just needy bosses.. Plus, we have obligations either to other social organizations or our churches or synagogues….. Add to that .. birthdays, Prom Season, Mother’s Day.. College Graduations… graduation parties.. weddings.. baby showers.. you see where I”m going.

Key to the success for our team- was the ability to not OWN a specific function- but for us to hand off- when necessary.

In otherwords, Ask for Help… Admit when we were needing help, Saying No.. can’t do this week, but I can do that week.. etc…

The respect among us that we recognized and understood all of individual obligations as employees/parents etc and there was no finger pointing that I’m aware of.. We just passed stuff like HOT potato as we needed… and it was a beautiful symphony of work…

I am so proud of Capital Chapter Members………We Rock!
