President's Message - December 2018

by Rick Barker, Director of Facilities, Sutter Roseville Medical Center; CSHE State President

 

Just a note of thanks to all who have supported CSHE over the years. Considering that fifteen years ago, I was contacted by Roger Richter to attend a CSHE board planning session and the next thing, I was part of the Board of Directors.

All of the people I have had the honor to serve with are sensational people. Every member I have ever met I have enjoyed spending time with. While I did not make it to each and every chapter for a meeting or event as President, I did make it to most of them.

As I conclude my term as CSHE State President, I cannot help but reflect on all the changes that have taken place over the years to make CSHE a stronger organization. As I look to the future for the organization we have a solid executive team of younger individuals that have mission and values of CSHE in their hearts. Just look what we have done so far.

My involvement with CSHE will continue, as I become the immediate past president. I will also be stepping in as the new Redwood Chapter President. I am excited for the direction CSHE is going, the future is bright.
