A Message from the Branch President

To my fellow Club Members of ESU,

I am pleased and honored to be your next President of our wonderful organization, the English Speaking Union of Central Florida! Serving as Michael Kakos' Executive Vice President for a few years and attending National and Regional Meetings gave me the chance to become familiar with the administration of the Union. It also helped identify opportunities for the future, including continuing to focus on 
E-SU's goal to increase our membership. 

A great reason to be proud of E-SU is our sponsorship of teachers for summers in England. They return as better teachers for the experience, with benefits that are shared with thousands of students over their teaching careers. Sharing these stories of success can help grow our organization for the benefit of current and future members. Also, we can continue to support teachers during the year by welcoming them to our E-SU community as new members. Changing a few of our meeting times would enable teachers and other working professionals to join E-SU. We must also maintain the convenient meeting time for existing members.

This is one idea for E-SU's future, but we need more—and we need yours! How can you help? Tell a friend about E-SU, bring someone to our next program or meeting, think of a new way to market our organization or a potential new community partner, and share your ideas on growing our membership with our Membership Committee, chaired by Gisela Davis. I look forward to working with you and to serving you as your next President of the English Speaking Union!

Frank Paul Barber, President
