Message from the President
Dear Fellow NCAEOP Members!
NCAEOP 2015-2016 is going to be an exciting year and I am thrilled to be serving as your President! I have been preparing for this challenge for several years. With support from my family, District 7 members, and my local unit, Moore County, I have the knowledge, skills and integrity to fulfill this prominent position. My appreciation goes out to all the Past Presidents of NCAEOP for they have set some high leadership standards and my hope is to be able to fulfill those professional standards to the best of my ability.
“Hope Makes A Difference” will be my theme and the logo will be a sand dollar surrounded by water. Everyone knows the story of the young boy and his grandfather walking on the beach after a storm and there are hundreds of sand dollars washed up on the shore and starting to die from the sun. As they are walking, the grandfather would stop from time to time, reach down, pick up a sand dollar and throw it back into the ocean. Finally, the little boy asked, “Grandfather, why are you throwing them back in?” and his grandfather replied “so that they will live.” The little boy thought for a minute and said, “But grandfather, there are so many of them! What possible difference can it make?” to which the grandfather replied while reaching to toss another one back in the ocean, “To that one, it will make all the difference in the world.”
In the same way, I want to challenge NCAEOP members to make a difference in the lives of co-workers, administrators, parents, students, friends and family through hope and faith. We can choose to be the difference in someone’s life.
This is the year for us to reaffirm our hope in God’s blessings, our hope in this association and our hope and faith in one another. Our membership has dropped during the past few years, but I believe that by each of us working together, we can rebuild the membership. Each of us can make a difference by talking about the importance of NCAEOP. Our Code of Ethics is about Service, Integrity and Skill; let’s not forget the meaning of these while making a difference in someone’s life.
Let us all work together in promoting the goals and objectives of NCAEOP by believing “Hope Makes A Difference” in 2015-2016.
Patricia G. Mabe
NCAEOP 2015-2016 President
