President’s Message – November 2019

Sherri Voigt, CGFM, CPA

Hello All!

We have had an extended break in our program offerings, but we are back in
motion. The Chapter will host 5 webinars this year, in addition to some lunch
meetings and the annual Symposium. I look forward to seeing you at an
upcoming session!

I am sad to share the news that David Mellem, long-time chapter board member, passed away this summer. We have included his obituary and re-run the article published when he retired from federal service in this newsletter. David was committed to government accountability and service throughout his 50 year career. He was a mentor to many of us currently serving in chapter leadership roles. He will be greatly missed.

As we have been planning the agenda for the annual Symposium, a speaker
reached out to us noting that David had contacted him. His service inspiration will live on in our memories.
