President’s Message

It has been a pleasure serving as Western District President this past year. As my term comes to a close, I am looking back at all the hard work done this past year and would like to thank the Western District Board for all their efforts.

The Western District One ITE Task Force has been working on a Transition Plan to address the establishment of the redefined Western District and the Mountain District as directed by the International Board of Direction (IBOD). Transition Plans for both Districts were accepted by the IBOD at their May meeting. The Western District Transition Plan will continue to be posted on the District website for your reference. In addition, the Board will provide updates to District operations and policies at the Annual Meeting in Monterey.

The Western District Annual Meeting is fast approaching ( Please register and book your hotel rooms before the meeting room rate is unavailable. For those of you who have not attended a Western District Annual Meeting before, I’d like to highlight a few social/networking events:

  • Get Acquainted Social on Sunday night in the Vendor Hall)
  • Family Night on Monday night at the world famous Monterey Bay Aquarium
  • Awards Banquet (80’s themed!) on Tuesday night where we will recognize our Lifetime Achievement Award winner

If you can come early please consider participating in the MiteY Race (

I am looking forward to seeing many of you next month in beautiful Monterey, California! Thank you for giving me the opportunity to serve our District.

Neelam Dorman
President, ITE Western District
