Chairman's Message                                                                                    January 2012

Stephen Mason


               Mason's Mission, "M&M"

 Membership & Marketing


Theme set by 2012 Board of Director's Chairman, Honorable Stephen Mason, President of Mas-Tek Engineering & Associates, Inc.


"Cheers to a Happy New Year". The focus this year is Membership & Marketing.  We believe that without you there is no us.  At the Board of Director's planning retreat held on December 9th, it was a roll up your sleeves, brain storming session to think of new innovative and/or enhanced ideas to provide members through our program of work. I tip my hat to the past chairman, Dr. Kirtland Speaks for having a successful year. We welcome new vice chair Jonathan Davis, President of Methodist Charlton Medical Center. Mr. Davis will chair Education which includes our Texas Scholars program which is a partnership with Cedar Hill Independent ScTexas Scholars Logohool District and Trinity School.  Texas Scholars is a course of study that encourages students to take more demanding classes.  It is a joint effort between education and the business community.  Please watch for more details on how you can get involved....... This is all part of  "Mason's Mission".
