                                       you at the upcoming Great Peppers Meeting in Amarillo.        to be a CASI Board member.
                                       I have a great desire to help and believe I can be
                                       effective working with the Board to help our organization     While I was on the Board, I enjoyed working with the Board and for CASI in helping to put

                                    am a proud lifetime CASI Member and have served in
                                    several capacities with Pods in the Dallas-Ft. Worth             Yours in CASI,

Cookoff the biggest one yet. I am ready to serve all CASI members as a Director.

I believe my experience with Boy Scouts, my church and several other charitable organizations
over the past 20 years will be a good resource for me to draw upon for my work on the Board.
I realize there is a lot of time, effort and just plain hard work that has to be done to make TICC
successful each year, and I am willing to make that effort on behalf of all CASI Members.

I welcome questions and comments from everyone concerning anything related to CASI
and the Board of Directors. If you don’t see me at a cookoff, my e-mail is

Know that I am committed to CASI. Thank you for your consideration.
