Understandably, just the word 'change' makes people uncomfortable. What are we in for? I didn't sign-up for this. What's wrong with the way things are?
Ladies and Gentlemen, there comes a time when a change of leadership presents itself.
Change is necessary, change is good. It offers a chance for others to put their mark on BTN. It also offers the opportunity for some of the previous leaders to hand-off the baton, step back and watch the new leaders run.
All things evolve and while it may sound ominous or uncertain it is a force of nature. It is a way to keep it fresh, a way to grow. It is a way in infuse new ideas and new energy, to carry momentum and direction forward.
It will still be BTN, but with a little different imprint. You may notice a different vibe at the BTN meetings. The meetings, the events and many other things should take on a little flavor of the new leadership.
But we must not lose sight of where we started. The leadership has been handed a compass that lies at the core of Building Trades Network.
Trust, Integrity & Accountability
Building trust and relationships is what BTN is about: with that comes confident referrals and recommendations.
Over the next few weeks I will take this opportunity to go over things with you. Take a look at your membership packet. You will have questions, maybe there is something you haven't noticed before. I suggest you write them down and ask them at the next meeting or two.
We will also introduce the new leadership, and they will explain their duties and what is expected of them.
So let's embrace these changes together. Right here, right now, and we will move closer to a brighter future.
