STANDARDS Link Vol 2 ISSUE 12 - Director's Address
This year can so far be summarized as one where in the face of many challenges, we have made significant progress and I thank you for your dedication to deliver on our mission.
While there is much work to do and there may be further challenges ahead, we end 2013 stronger and better able to serve clients and stakeholders. We continued throughout the year to enhance our organization, to build capacity, and to manage through the financial constraints facing our local
economy.Today, our organization is still exposed to many risks, but we move forward stronger and organized to serve our clients, as we look to build deeper relationships with them and help restore confidence and strength to our economy.
The New Year will bring its own mix of successes and challenges, but our direction has to remain clear as we know what we must do. Our job is to continue to focus intently on what we can control: providing our clients with the best service and most comprehensive Standardization services and solutions, managing our limited resources, our image, and doing our part to keep the economy moving forward.
I appreciate all of your hard work this year; it is because of you, and because we know we can do so much more for clients than anyone else, that I have such great confidence in the future of the SLBS.
Please enjoy some well deserved rest and fun with family and friends during this holiday season, and let’s get right back to it in 2014.
My best wishes to you and your families for a safe, happy holiday season and a very happy new year.
