My wife Wanda and I became Foresters Financial™ members in 1984. From the beginning, this organization strongly encouraged us to become more involved. Wanda and I jumped in with both feet and embraced Foresters Purpose to enrich the lives of our members, their families and the communities in which they live. For 34 years Foresters has been a large part of our family life with both children being members from birth.
I began a new chapter in my journey with Foresters by being elected International Fraternal President in 2017. During the past few months, I’ve thought long and hard about our Purpose and what Foresters means to our members.
Since 1874 Foresters has embraced its Purpose, working to make a difference by engaging our members in their local communities. We continue this much-needed work today, with members volunteering thousands of hours each year to improve people’s lives. Our members are genuinely moved to action.
Having our Purpose at the core of everything that we do will continue to sustain us well into the future. I want to thank my family, friends, employees, the Board and Richard Hennick, Foresters International Fraternal Vice President for their continued support, and most of all, I want to thank you the members for being a part of this incredible organization.
Chris Stranahan, International Fraternal President
