Greetings From Are New FFAA President
From Cycthia Foote FFAA President:
Happy New Year to All the Footes (and Foote-related) out there!
I'm excited to be starting this year as the new President of our Association. For all of you who know Barbara Foote-Hennessy, you know she has been our exemplary President for many years.
Thankfully, she is staying very active in our group: Newsletter Editor, temporary Treasurer while we search for a new one, Trustee, and hand -holder to me as I learn the ropes of the job.
One of the best parts for me about becoming more active in the Foote Family Association of America has been getting to better know all the Officers, Staff and Trustees of our group.
We have an outstanding group of dedicated volunteers who have put in countless hours over the years to make us as successful as we are.
-- Organizing our biennial conferences
-- Publishing our genealogical books
-- Overseeing membership and getting news out to all our members
-- Keeping our finances straight
-- Maintaining our historical and family records
-- Building and updating our online presence
(both through our website and Facebook)
-- Facilitating our biannual board meetings
There are so many jobs that are essential to keep us functioning at our high level.
We plan to highlight these people in our upcoming newsletters, so that you can better know us and learn what motivates us.
Hopefully, our short biographies will inspire others out there to become more involved and join us.
We would love to hear from you!

From Barbara Foote Hennessy
I want to personally welcome Cynthia in her new position as President and I look forward to working with her and the rest of the Board in the coming year.
As you can see, there are still open positions within the board.
We currently have an opening for a First Vice President. This position is one that will help Cynthia lead the board in many areas.
In addition, the position of Treasurer is also available. This position would handle paying any bills that might be due, managing bank accounts, and handle all money that needs to be deposited.
The board has regular meetings in the spring and fall. These meetings are currently held in Wethersfield, CT, at the Congregational Church.
It would be great if you could attend, but you can also join by conference calling. These meetings are enjoyed by all. Lots of conversations, laughs and great food!
If you are interested in hearing more about the Foote Family Executive Board or have any questions, please contact Cynthia at email@example.com.
