Congratulations to the MS Leadership Class of 2009 Congratulations to you for successfully completing the inaugural MS Leadership Class of 2009. We never cease to be amazed at the generosity of individuals helping our organization make quantum changes. Indeed your kind and compassionate gifts to the National MS Society will be long-lasting. In our quest for a world free of MS, we have stumbled across some difficult times. Most recently, the economic events of the past 18 months have tested our character as a person, a community and a nation. But, we believe that individually and collectively the MS Leadership Class of 2009 has claimed a moment of success; inspiring hope and encouraging innovation for people living with MS. Your outstanding fundraising efforts will support vital research through the National MS Society’s Promise 2010 Campaign, a nationwide effort to raise at least $35 million for targeted areas of research and patient care that hold great potential. It is our desire that you continue making giving a priority, promoting a value system grounded on respect for others and a strong belief in self-worth. In a time when it is so easy to be self-absorbed, you have upheld the essential values of leadership: honesty, integrity, confidence, and compassion. It is noteworthy. As we organize our efforts for a world free of MS, it is our motivating desire to highlight and underscore your focus on personal commitment and emphasize the social responsibility that compels you to integrate your passion and desire for a better world. It is therefore, our hope you will openly welcome future opportunities to support our mission. Our best to you as you continue to expand your leadership role in the community.

Sincerely, Cindy Nofi Private Wealth Advisor U.S. Trust, Bank of America Co-Chair, MS Leadership Class of 2009
