President's Message

Well, one month in the books for 2019, and on to an equally cold February! I hope everyone is staying warm and safe in this weather.

Many thanks to Stephanie Beninati from Strategic Insurance Services for her presentation on business insurance last month and to Dean Leschak, PPG Paints for our tabletop presentation.

This month we are looking forward to a great presentation from Ryan Tefertiller, City of Colorado Springs Downtown Planner and Ryan Phillips, City Engineer. Ryan and Ryan have been very involved in the planning and construction of the improvements in Southwest Downtown, among other projects in our City and their presentation promises to be very informative and interesting.

Our tabletop presenter this month is Bryan Krueger from Bowman Construction Supply.

Don’t forget about our upcoming tour of the US Olympic Center tour on March 6!! This is going to be one you do not want to miss.   We will provide more information on this tour as it becomes available but please mark the date on your calendars now. We will also have a regular chapter meeting on March 20.

One last item to mention now is our upcoming May Year End Networking event. Each year this event gets a bit bigger and this year should be the same. If you are a product vendor interested in purchasing a table for this event, please contactJoni Zimmerman at 719-237-1544 or

We do still have a few open slots for board members for our upcoming 2019-2020 season. Please consider tossing your hat in the ring for a board position. You will find that the benefits of being involved in the growth and direction of our chapter are very rewarding and the time commitment is not overwhelming at all. Many of the positions can be done in an hour or two a month.

If you are interested in joining the board for the upcoming 2019-2020 season, please chat with one of the existing board members for more information.

Thank you all for your continued membership. We look forward to seeing you at the next meeting.
