As Chair of a number of new groups, Tim’s goal is to empower members to take ownership of the group and drive each other to achieve new heights of excellence. “I am looking for members who are successful, naturally curious, always striving to do better, enjoy helping others and who are looking for personal growth opportunities. For members to be successful, they must be willing to park their egos at the door, ask the tough questions and be open and honest with themselves and others.”
