Momentum. This word conveys so many things and can help us understand what is happening around us. I like the English Dictionary* definition, “the force that keeps an object moving or keeps an event developing after it has started.” It also mentions an example that once you push it, it keeps going under its own momentum. The momentum of the golf club hitting the ball should strike it so it keeps moving straight toward the hole…hopefully…for some, not so easily done.
When I think of MABA this word, “momentum” keeps coming to mind. We have truly gained momentum over the last view years and certainly over the last few months. Our last several member (2nd Friday of the month!) meetings continue to draw a great group of regulars and many guests, many of whom have joined us as members! Our meeting sponsor, Kris McVicar with Citizens Bank, provided us with great information about their services and education on how student banking works. The networking time and opportunities to do find ways to do business with a member continue to be of value and we hope you are taking advantage of it.
Momentum continued to grow with the Golf Outing last week where we had a record number of golfers, lunch attenders and money raised for philanthropic grants we plan to give out by the end of the year. Thank-you to co-chairs Jennifer Bennett, Tom Hamp and the whole committee who did an outstanding job running and organizing the golf outing. We had several first time sponsors and golfers who did great in our no pressure-fun-relaxing-best ball format. If you missed it, make it a priority to join us next year.
All I can say is keep the Momentum going! Keep making MABA a priority in your business and in your weekly schedule. Visit the website, what is going on in the weeks to come. Keep sharing your ideas with a board member, fill out a comment card or post a note on MABA Chat so we can continue this positive momentum and the value we strive to bring to all MABA members. Stay involved this summer and I hope to see you at the next event! As we say on the baseball field, “Let’s do this thing!”
