July 2015 President’s Letter

Jessica CatesOh, how I love summer: relaxing by the pool, in a hammock or at the beach and (of course) summer reading. With longer days and planned trips on the horizon, now is the perfect time to look ahead and plan what book you can take on your next vacation or when you’re relaxing pool side. I mean what is more relaxing than reading a good book with a drink in your hand? I have searched and reviewed several different lists of must reads for this summer and these books made almost all of them. So if you’re stuck trying to decide what to download on your Kindle or buy at the local bookstore consider the search over and be sure to select one of these top reads.

And if you don’t have a summer vacation planned there is still time to plan one…come and join your local board and other fellow industry leaders at NACE National Experience Conference in Scottsdale, AZ next month. It’s a vacation and an educational experience all wrapped up into one. We would love to see you there!
