Gratitude is a Renewable Resource & New Charterholder Event

Event Description

​Celebrate the New Year and New Charterholders with a free professional portrait for all CFA Members.  As we all know a professional photo is an essential element for your business profession.  A photographer will be available starting at 5:00 pm and will be setup near the reception area to make your sitting fast and easy.

After the reception we are excited to welcome Wisconsin Native and New York Times Best Selling Author, humorist, musician and radio show host Mike Perry will be the keynote speaker. 

"If I had to sum up my 'career' in one word, it would be gratitude. I get to write and tell stories all around the country, then come home to be with my family and hang out at the local feed mill complaining about the price of feeder hogs. It's a good life and I'm lucky to have it."

Perry's perspectives on everything from cleaning the chicken coop to sharing a New York City elevator with supermodels will have you snorting with laughter on one page, blinking back tears on the next, and — no matter your zip code — nodding in recognition throughout.  His latest book "Roughneck Grace" is a collection of brief essays including the popular "Gratitude" piece which he highlights in a recent passage.

Gratitude, according to Perry, is a renewable resource.  The program is expected to renew and refresh the gratitude of having achieved the CFA Charterholder Designation and all that life has to offer. 

There will be an opportuntiy to purchase a signed copy of Mr. Perry's latest book "Roughneck Grace" at the event.

In honor of those who have recently earned their charter, we will recognize these individuals during the event.  Please join us in congratulating the New Charterholders!
