I am proud to be a member of an organization that recognizes and promotes excellence in professional counseling. It is truly an honor to be nominated for a leadership position on the Executive Council of Chi Sigma Iota (CSI). As treasurer, I will maintain and uphold the standard of excellence as I carry out the responsibilities required of this role. I plan to work collaboratively with the executive director and council members in an effort to develop budgets, monitor financial activities, and ensure fiscal stability of our society at the international level. As treasurer, I will be responsive to the needs of our society and chapters and make sure members have the tools and resources necessary to experience CSI as it was first envisioned 30 years ago. It is vital chapters are equipped to support individual members in ongoing personal and professional development at all stages of their professional counseling careers. Only through active membership and chapter involvement will the goals of CSI be realized and our profession strengthened. As a member of the executive council, I will endorse and uphold our mission of promoting high standards in our profession and will seek creative and innovative practices that further advance our organization and promote professionalism, leadership, and advocacy across all levels of membership. As your treasurer, I will work to ensure our society and its members continue the pursuit for academic and clinical excellence in professional counseling. Thank you for considering my nomination to serve as treasurer of Chi Sigma Iota.
