Exciting Changes Coming In 2011-12
Wow, I have almost reached the one-year marker of having the privilege to serve as President of your North Texas State Soccer Association, Inc. What an exciting endeavor!
One of the main endeavors for this year is implementing changes in the way North Texas Soccer communicates with you, our membership. The first change was the launch of our new website and all of the wonderful capabilities it gives us.
The second change is even more exciting — and you are checking it out right now, with this inaugural issue of an e-newsletter version of The Pitch®. You will find the electronic version of The Pitch® in your email once a month.
No more having to wait for the next printed issue to view photos from a tournament, or catch the next great coaching or referee article. The Pitch® will still be a venue for exciting news articles about members and North Texas Soccer events, opportunities to play and other needs of NTSSA members. North Texas Soccer will also be able to send special-interest issues, or announcements as needed.
We are not doing away with the printed issues; there will be two special editions of The Pitch® printed each year. Please take every opportunity to take advantage of the new North Texas Soccer media. Continue to look for even more changes implemented to enhance North Texas Soccer member opportunities.
My first year has brought a lot of work and many challenges. With the assistance of several individuals, various member associations and members of the North Texas Soccer Executive Committee, the first year has also been very rewarding and enjoyable. I look forward to another year as your President. Thank you again for the opportunity to serve you.
