We also want to thank 2 of our outgoing board members for their years of dedication and service to the Fox Valley Payroll Association.
Laurice Montgomery is exiting the role of Chapter President, but we know she is still fiercely devoted to the success of our chapter. Under Laurice's direction, our chapter modernized our website, created social media groups/pages on both LinkedIn and Facebook, and partnered with 2 new corporate sponsors who have helped to grow the chapter. She was also a solid voice of calm when all of our worlds were turned upside down in 2020. We shifted to entirely virtual webinars allowing more members to participate, virtual CPP/FPC study sessions, and helped us elevate to more payment options. Laurice, we can't thank you enough for your passion and direction through some really difficult times. We're so grateful for your continued membership and support!
Karen Keiper is exiting the role of Chapter Secretary, but we are assured she'll still be there for us to share her wealth of knowledge and expertise in our efforts to keep driving our chapter forward. Karen is also a previous president of our chapter and has served in many capacities over the years. She has been instrumental in keeping our chapter compliant and making sure RCH credits are secured for all of our webinars and study groups. Additionally, Karen has successfully planned the Illinois Statewide Payroll Conferences in partnership with other Illinois chapters for many years. While she recently relocated to beautiful Colorado, she promises to stay an active member of our chapter and we couldn't be more grateful to have her. Thank you, Karen, for your many years of dedication to FVPA!
