Outgoing Message From WIlliam Fletcher, 2015 Chapter President & SFPE Award for Chapter Excellence

Hi SD SFPE Chapter,

I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone of you for your help and support during my term as president of the chapter. As Derek prepares to take over the chapter with his first meeting in September I hope that you will provide him with the same support and effort!

I am proud to share with you that our chapter received the Gold Award for Chapter Excellence from SFPE. My first year we did not get recognized, last year we received the bronze, and this year the GOLD.     We’ve made a lot of changes, hopefully for the better and I think Derek is the right guy to continue this effort.


So Derek best of luck, I’m glad my reign can end on a positive note.  This chapter is yours.

Hope you all have a safe summer!
