Welcome to a new year and a new decade. The future offers so much to look forward to and is so exciting! This year of 2020 I ask that all of you play to your strengths, whatever they may be, to find out what works for you. Everyone is talented in some way and we all have something to offer each other.  Perhaps this is your year to break new ground. I say lean into this and see where it takes you.

In 2020 we will be mixing things up a bit. Instead of District Conferences throughout the state, we shall have four Regional Conferences. These will be divided by South Florida, Central Florida, and North Florida West and East. They will be bigger and better, with a focus on education, personal growth, industry highlights and more. These all-day events will have multiple speakers and panel discussions with a focus on growing your business and your service, as well as plenty of opportunities to network with others.

I intend to inspire all of you to Rise & Shine. Rise up and shine a light on who you are, what you have to offer others, how truly incredible you are as a member of our organization. A little bragging never hurt anyone, especially if others benefit from what you have to say. So, go ahead, let us know what you are all about.

Our 2019 Strategic Plan includes helping you help your networks. We want to provide you with the tools to grow your membership and make your network the best that it can be! We will be offering a Business Toolbox for your Networks to use throughout the year that will include video modules, templates and more.

The Leadership Team wants to help you grow your network, develop future leaders and create a meaningful and fun environment for your members. Because YOUR members are OUR members!  

This is our year to Rise & Shine! I am honored to serve as your President and am always available if you need anything.

All the best,


Christine Citrano

2020 President
