Happy Holidays!



We hope you enjoyed the 2014 Holiday Party! There is so much to celebrate and so much for which we are thankful. There is still much work ahead! We hope the holidays provide you the time to rest, recharge and get ready for the New Year.

With that in mind, we thought we would also give you — AND our very busy Marketing/Communications duo extraordinaire - ( Sam Tournabene & Carl Andrews ) — a holiday rest.  This will be our last 2014 newsletter.  We will be back in January with our regular weekly communications and a refresh of our communications strategy.

Simply put, thank you and a blessed holiday season to you all.

Whatever your traditions, however you celebrate, the HRC Dallas/Fort Worth Board, Federal Club Governing Committee and your 2014 Federal Club/Federal Club Council Co-Chairs wish you an equality-filled holiday season and prosperous 2015! 

A personal note from Chris Lindsey

I want to dedicate this final newsletter of the year to one of my best friends and constant cohorts for equality — my 2014 co-chair, Jaime Duggan.  As Federal Club co-chair for the past 2 years, she has, with the support of an amazing team, transformed the women’s membership initiative, exceeding 100 women households for the first time! The Dallas model has informed a new initiative for HRC on a national level.  On a more personal note, as my co-chair, Jaime has been a constant source of help and consistent focus, as we strive to lead Federal Club.

Jaime is not only a close friend, but someone who has taught me the in-depth thought processes necessary to be successful in this position. I only hope I can live up to a small part of the legacy that she and those who have proceeded have built.

To my friend, my colleague, my HRC wife…Cheers to an amazing, exhausting, and exhilarating 2014! Thank you, Jaime Duggan. And here's to Liz Rodriguez, your 2015 co-chair elect - we have big shoes to fill and incredible shoulders that we stand upon.

Finally, thank you to each and every member of the Federal Club Governing Committee and subcommittees. There is no "I" in team – as co-chairs, we manage and direct, without an amazing team we simply could not meet the challenge!

Happy Holidays!
