President's Letter October 2014


Bring out the confetti and party hats!  On Sunday, October 12th we will be celebrating CHEO's 5th year anniversary!  This is a Special Program, a Special Day and a Special Location - at Paul Kelly’s new office at The Temple: Human Performance in North Shore Town Center, 2099 Thunderhead Rd., Suite 205, Knoxville, TN.

Our Board has been working this year on strategic planning to create CHEO’s vision for the future.  We look forward to seeing your ideas, comments or suggestions for programs, locations, media, online and print directories and any other ways you think CHEO can increase awareness and knowledge about holistic and complementary wellness in our Knoxville community.  Please email your thoughts to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

2015 Memberships and Directory: And, it’s that time again when we ask for your support during our annual campaign for new and renewing memberships and directory listing updates.  We have two membership levels, Supporting members and Practitioner members.  We encourage everyone to participate in Networking Time before and after monthly programs.  In addition to listings in the 2015 On-Line and Print Directories, Practitioners are encouraged to list their classes and events in our on-line Calendar, post articles to our “Blog”, and apply to speak at our monthly programs. 

Our membership volunteers have sent renewal and directory update requests to current members.  We are starting the annual update of member information for the 2015 Print and On-line Member Directories for release in January 2015.  Please move this to your “It’s On Fire” list to do as early as possible in October in order to keep us on-track with the publication timeline.  Our volunteers thank you Big Time for your prompt response!

Looking forward to seeing your “My Thoughts” email for CHEO 2015.

All the best of health,
Rosemary Koziara, President 2014
