Greetings! Because of an unanticipated vacancy, I was elected by the Board to serve as president-elect for the 2016 year. However, I must be elected by the membership and I look to you for your support. I have served two terms as an elected member of the Board of Governors and am currently the business manager for our organization. While serving on the Board, I was the Chair of the Education Committee for three conferences and was the project manager for the 2012 conference in San Francisco, CA. During this time, my experiences have been very exciting, rewarding and meaningful and I want to continue my efforts and contributions in another capacity. I believe the success of any organization is through its collaborative voices and the contributions of its members and I would be honored to serve as your president-elect. Thank you for your consideration and I appreciate your vote of confidence.
