From Our President & CEO | cdc monthly - March 2018

As the calendar changes from March to April, I can't help but look back with gratitude for the past month. March offered all of us here at CDC of Tampa so many opportunities to inspire--and be inspired by--strong, smart, talented women.

Now, as someone who is happy to call himself a husband, father, son, grandson and chief executive, being surrounded by amazing women is nothing new for me. However, it does seem appropriate that we were able to emphasize our blessings during March, since it is National Women's History Month!

From our inaugural Sisterhood Summit for middle and high school girls on March 9th, to this past week when our founder, Mrs. Chloe Coney, was honored as a Tampa Bay Lightning Community Hero, the past month truly allowed us to advance our organizational vision for a thriving Tampa Bay region in which both women and men are able to contribute to communities that are equitable, diverse and engaged in our collective success.

In between these two amazing "bookend events", we had the pleasure of sitting down with one of our recent client successes, Christy Chraibi, who took the time to share how she worked step by step to achieve her goal of homeownership.

You'll find all of this and more in this edition of CDC Monthly. I hope you will be inspired by what you see and read, and that you'll share it with someone you think will be moved as well. I also hope it will offer you the chance to say a special "thank you" to the amazing women in your life who are working to build prosperous futures and vibrant communities for all of us to enjoy.

May the next month be full of new opportunities for you and your family. And, as always, thank you for being a special part of our CDC of Tampa family!
