A look back, a look forward

My first post of 2009 - w00t!

Looking back, 2008 was a major year of change for me. In April, I welcomed my beautiful daughter Madeline Louise into the world. Then, in October, I started my first ED job with the Arlington Soccer Association. Needless to say, those two events have really driven my life this year. I think I can honestly say that right now I am the luckiest guy I know. A great family and a job that I was built for.

2009 looks to be just as exciting as I watch my little girl grow by the second and as I start to get the ASA where I know it can go. I am not one for New Year's Resolutions (as I never keep them), but there are a few things I know I need to work on. This blog is one of them. I dropped off a great deal once I got the new gig. Things were crazy and I just didn't get it done. I need to get back on track to win one of Ben's awards for 2009.

So, I give you permission to kick me in the butt if I go back to slacking. I would also like some help with some topics for my posts. My frame of reference has changed a great deal. I am not working for a big, international association in membership anymore. I am ED of a small, local association working from home. So what do you want to hear about?

I hope you all have a great 2009 and I look forward to our conversations.
