President's Message - Chris Furlotte

 Welcome 2017!

As we kick off a new year, I wanted to reach out to the membership and express my gratitude for the opportunity to lead The Southern California Relocation Council (SCRC) for the next two years as well as let you know about some of the new initiatives the new board will be exploring  for the 2017-2018 term.


We have redesigned our Sponsorship Programs to provide both annual sponsorships as well as individual meeting sponsorships for 2017.  By making this change we are able to provide more marketing exposure and benefits to our sponsors as well as drive a slight increase in SCRC revenue which will allow us the financial resources to expand our program offerings for our members in 2017. This could include better programs including paid professional speakers.


To kick off the year we launched a corporate engagement survey to provide our corporate members an opportunity to steer our direction in 2017-2018. This survey is capturing the impressions of our corporate member base in areas such as meeting locations, format and content. This data will be instrumental in driving greater corporate participation in 2017-2018.


We are planning to experiment with various meeting formats for 2017 and 2018.  Without abandoning our current format of lunch meetings, we hope to experiment with other meeting options such as a full day conference, breakfast meetings and afternoon meetings to provide more options to our membership.


Finally, as we kick off the New Year, I wanted to talk about our upcoming kick off meeting on February 1st. This event is designed to be a fun event - an evening of reconnecting with friends and colleagues and raising money for SCRC’s charities – Working Wardrobes and our member charity, Find Cures.  Highlights of this event include some fun country line dancing lessons from Kerry Kick, Orange County’s top line dancing instructor as well as our annual Silent Auction. So dress in a casual country western style if you are so inclined, bring your wallet to bid on our donated prizes and join us on the dance floor for a little organized humiliation!

Once again I want to thank all of our members who have placed their trust in myself and the rest of the SCRC board to lead the organization for the next two years. Even more importantly, thank you for your continued support of the organization through your participation, membership fees and sponsorship dollars.  If you have any feedback or comments on how we can improve upon the programs and benefits we offer to our membership, please reach out to me at

With gratitude,


President, SCRC
