According to the business dictionary, the definition of team is "a group of people with a full set of complimentary skills required to complete a task, job, or project. Team members (1) operate with a high degree of inter-dependence, (2) share authority and responsibility for self- management, ( 3) are accountable for the collective performance, and (4) work towards a common goal in shared rewards, A team becomes more than just a collection of people when a strong sense of mutual commitment creates synergy, thus generating performance greater than the sum of the performance of its individual members".
So that's a pretty long explanation of what we're hoping to accomplish over the next two years.
Individually, we can accomplish great things at the unit and council level. But imagine what we could do if all of us work together as one team. The possibilities are endless.
Whether you are a member or officer at a local unit, council, or a member of the Thirty-Third District Executive Board, you are part of our team.
Over the next two years you're probably going to hear a lot about the need for teamwork. But I am hoping that you will truly embrace the concept of our district being one team with one dream, and find the time you spend as part of this team rewarding, enjoyable, and fun.
Thank you for being part of our team, and I'm looking forward to serving as your president and team captain.
