Welcome 2017!

Only two weeks into the New Year and so many exciting developments are happening at EASFV! Starting with our new monthly newsletter, social media minute, and a new website facelift in the works. I believe we are off to a good New Year’s start. Growth is the key to success in 2017, so please invite your guests! Each month we will highlight a new suggested member category. January’s category is Pool Service and Supplies. Who do you know that might be interested in joining EASFV and sharing in a networking group based upon integrity, friendships, trusted colleagues and oh yes, business leads! Our group shared over 1,900 leads with each other in 2016.
As we journey through this new and exciting year together, thank you for your continued support, dedication and loyalty to the Executives Association of San Fernando Valley (EASFV).

The “not your favorite subject” Section

Dues are Due! We are so excited to activate our new accounting system. You’ve already received your January invoice and many of you have already paid. We appreciate you keeping your dues current each month. This is an important and intracule part of our organization.

It’s that time again…our biggest fundraiser of the year! It’s Silent Auction Time. This year Dariush Sadighi plans not to be so silent as he is off and running; soliciting your donations! Dariush has set an ambitious goal to benefit the EASFV! Even if you do not plan on attending the Installation Dinner, we hope you will still donate an item to the auction. Your donation does not need to be something from your business. Have fun with your donation. Some ideas are restaurant, movie or spa certificates or make a fun pasta dinner basket. The sky’s the limit. With appreciate YOU!

new-img1I am thrilled to be your incoming President for 2017! After nine years in our group, I am exciting to take on the challenges of this role and couldn’t do it without the support of our board of directors and new executive director.

This is an exciting time as we grow our electronic presence to be as strong as our physical, face to face presence with the goal of growing our membership. The business I have received through this organization is great, but I truly appreciate the friendships that have developed over the years and want to share that experience with a slate of new members. Let’s all try to be heads up in our day to day affairs to seek those new members.

Again, thank you for your support, thank you to the board of directors and our executive director. I am excited for the opportunities in 2017 and hope you are too!
