I'm am very proud to serve as the Board Chairman for the Sconiers Clan, Inc. President Lisa Sconiers and myself have worked tirelessly to keep in contact. Even through a pandemic, we are committed to moving to higher heights. I have the privilege of working with a dynamic group of Board Members representing our lineages.
This year we would like to continue our search for a member of the Doc lineage to serve on the Board of Directors. It is our desire for each lineage to have a voice in the decisions impacting the clan.
We will continue to use and apply our Bylaws to ensure efficient management of the property and business of this corporation. We will also continue to tweak our Standard Operating Procedures as circumstances arise.
Will the Circle Be Unbroken?
The last few years has pushed all of us to our limits. But we must remain steadfast in our desire to stay connected. Our Virtual Reunion was a huge success, however I'm looking forward to the opportunity to see and embrace my family in person.
Please take time to check on one another. Please take time to pray for one another. Please take time to share with your family members news and information regarding the Sconiers Clan, Inc. Let's Stay Together...
We look forward to working with you and seeing you at the next Biennial Reunion in Sconiersville, Alabama.
