MERRY CHRISTMAS & HAPPY NEW YEAR !!
I pray that you and your families enjoy this
holiday period.
Our Chapter will only be as good as we make
it. I commit to provide relevant, professional
information during these monthly meetings.
I'd like to reach out to our community leaders
and our own financial leaders and have them
provide their insights and experience for us. I
need your commitment to take an active role
in this organization. We have many
committees that make this a successful
Chapter. I'd encourage you to get involved
and see how you can make a difference. The

Season's Greetings!
On behalf of the National Executive Committee and the staff at
the American Society of Military Comptrollers National
Headquarters, we would like to wish you all a happy and safe
holiday season.
This is the time of year to reflect upon our accomplishments
and set our goals for the New Year. It is a time to remember
those, including ASMC members, who are working to defend
our freedoms. It is also the time when we open our hearts to
those less fortunate. We are committed to that philanthropic
sentiment and ask that our chapters continue their efforts
providing community service during this holiday time and
throughout the year.
Looking ahead, it is clear that the New Year will bring with it
new challenges and initiatives. We remain resolved to
strengthening ASMC's presence as a valuable resource focused
on assisting its members with their professional growth. We are
thankful to our many national and chapter volunteers who
dedicate themselves toward this goal and are truly fortunate to
have members with such great dedication. Thank you for all
your hard work.
Again, happy holidays to you all from the ASMC.
Sincerely,
Al Tucker
ASMC Executive Director
Terri McKay
ASMC National President
