Message from the COVR President

Your COVR Board has been busy at work on various committees.

* The Membership Committee is coming up with great ideas to promote our organization and attract new members. Many of these ideas will be implemented in early 2011 because our Holiday Season is upon us.

* The COVR Visionary Awards committee is perfecting our approach to judging as we look forward to a new group of submissions for the upcoming year.

* The Website Committee has been hard at work creating a new website. It appears that we are getting closer to launching our site as we finalize our design, content and SEO to optimize our exposure.

On behalf of the COVR Board, I encourage you to contact COVR to add your help to make the organization better. This organization is yours to support successful business. The more you give, the more you get

I have found that as I’ve developed and cultivated relationships with fellow COVR members over the years, it has helped me be more successful in so many arenas. Wouldn’t you like to find ways to grow? Again, I say, “The more you give, the more you get.” This is a call to you to:

* join a committee

* write an article for the e-Newsletter

* join us on our Facebook page

* send us your ideas on how to make COVR better and then help make it so!

* invite colleagues to join COVR – whether it’s your favorite vendor or favorite retailer or your speakers, authors, artists and musicians.

Just like it takes money to make money, it takes participating members to have a successful trade organization. Make a commitment to help – even if it’s to start in January 2011 – as one of your New Year’s Resolutions!
