President's Message

Jan GiffinJan Giffin, CPPO, CPPB, VCO

It is hard to believe that 2014 is coming to an end and the time has come to say goodbye as your President. It has been a privilege to serve as the President of VAGP for 2014. It has been an amazing experience to work so closely this year with the Board of Directors, the membership, and our management firm, OMG. I have witnessed so much support and input from the Board and, the membership as well as hard work from the numerous volunteers.

As I look back at this past year, I continue to see the support and involvement of the membership and numerous volunteers that make VAGP a great organization. VAGP continues to lead the way with many educational classes, seminars, conferences, and opportunities for promoting our profession.

I would like to thank each of you for your support and friendship. Join me in welcoming the 2015 President, Stephanie Suter. I am confident that she will take VAGP to the next level. I know VAGP will continue to thrive under her leadership. I hope that you will continue to provide your support and ideas to our 2015 Board of Directors.

I wish you all a joyous Christmas season full of blessings and look forward to what 2015 has in store for VAGP.
