GREATER NEW ORLEANS EXECUTIVES ASSOCIATION
August 16, 2011
LETTERS OF RESIGNATION
It was with regret that we were informed of the resignation of Cedric Martin, Martin Wine Cellar. The classification of “Wines & Liquors” is now open.
President-Elect, Joey DiMaggio, Rose Garden of Jefferson would like to hear your suggestions on programs. If you have a program in mind that would be of interest to you or to the association, please contact Susan at [email protected].
Jim Hudson, Executive Vice-President, Chairman Southeast Region of Iberiabank is currently going through our membership process. Tom Tappan and Jim Hudson are both with Iberiabank and are applying for our first Dual Membership. Dual Membership will give them both membership with each paying dues, but they will be sharing the attendance requirements. Jim has attended two meetings, but still needs to attend one more before the board of directors will take a vote.
If you see him at a meeting, please take a moment to introduce yourself.
Our program for today was a round table discussion on the raising of the country’s debt ceiling and the lowering of our credit rating. Most members felt that so far, there has not been any immediate effect on their companies with either issue. Most members felt that the country cannot sustain the climbing debt that is being accumulated and would like to see some cuts in spending, but overall they were optimistic.
