President’s Perspective: A Season for Gratitude

Share this page

By Robert Budd, ANCOR President

As we enter a season of giving thanks, I reflect on the gratitude that I have for ANCOR’s ability to continually reinvent itself to remain relevant and stay on the cutting edge when it comes to issues that affect not only our current system for delivery of services, but the future possibilities for those we are honored to support every day.

A small example of ANCOR’s continual reinvention is this very publication! ANCOR continually strives to present a significant amount of critical information to our members in the most effective and efficient manner possible. The transition from LINKS to Connections is just one of many examples of our commitment to ensuring you get timely information about key issues, when and how you need it. Please take advantage of this and the many other ways in which your membership provides you access to critical information and critical thinkers on both global and local subjects. 

I know that as I became more involved with ANCOR, I realized more and more that our organization had previously only scratched the surface of the many benefits of membership. As I reflect on the connections I have made through ANCOR, I am immensely grateful for the vast knowledge base available to us and invaluable relationships we have built with like-minded, mission-driven, value-based leaders. To all ANCOR members, I am grateful for you, as you are truly the heart of our vibrant association.

Wishing you and yours a season of peace and gratitude! 

Robert Budd is President of the ANCOR Board of Directors and CEO of Family Residences & Essential Enterprises in New Bethpage, New York.
