Welcome to ISM-Southern Colorado 2016
Farewell to our President!
The time has come for the ISM Southern Colorado Chapter to say goodbye to our outgoing President, Tracey Toohey.  Tracey has been on the board for six years serving in various positions with the last two as President.  Tracey's leadership has been excellent leading us through some significant times in the history of ISM Southern Colorado.  She led us through financial challenges and the organization transition from NAPM to ISM.  It is through Tracey's determination and perseverance that we are now ISM Southern Colorado. Tracey always brought a positive energy and contagious smile to our Board Meetings and events.  Her concern  and caring for others has inspired the organization to stay connected as a professional community.  Tracey became more than a leader to the Chapter, she became our friend and this is a friendship that will never fade.  Tracey, thank you so much for your service and good luck in your new venture.  We look forward to seeing you at future events!
How Lucky we are to have known someone who is so hard to say goodbye to!!
