A Letter from the ALCC President | February

First off, I would like to wish everyone a happy New Year! My hope is that 2021 will be a better year for each and every one of you. The optimism and sense of renewal is especially significant in 2021. While we are a ways off from being back to "normal," the vaccine provides hope that the worst is behind us. We have all learned a lot about ourselves, our businesses and our industry throughout this pandemic. I have witnessed acts of generosity both large and small, along with outpourings of kindness to help our communities most vulnerable throughout these troubled times. 

We have all had to change the way we operate, communicate and manage our businesses. There are no manuals or instructions on how to navigate your business through a global pandemic since this is new to all of us. I would like to thank John McMahon and the ALCC staff for their amazing work in keeping our organization and its operations engaged and informed. They, like all of us, have had to juggle, adjust and adapt through Zoom calls, working from home and not being able to meet in-person and still keeping all of us active.

Speaking of having to adapt to change, we are still moving forward with our ProGreen EXPO. It will be an ONLINE EXPERIENCE on February 22nd - 25th. We are committed to continuing the ProGreen tradition by providing education and connection to our green industry. I would like to encourage all of you to register; the early bird special is still available.

ALCC will be continuing to work on our existing programs: SLM training, Career Pathways, H-2B and Sustainable Partners. One major focus that we will be tackling early this year us the potential drought that is looming. We have taken proactive steps to meet with key influencers, our communication and PR team, as well as many municipalities to avoid possible restrictions.

I am honored and privileged to be your new president and I look forward to working with all of you this year. I would be glad to hear from any of you if you ever have any concerns or just want to talk.
