I can't speak for everyone, but I left this year's conference feeling like we were successful. I had a great time in Asheville, but then, I live here, and I do love my mountains.
I watched our group of people - old faces, new faces (18 first-timers!) - build with Legos, listen intently to presenters, discuss important issues, and give of themselves and their wallets to support our colleagues ravaged by Hurricane Florence. I am incredibly proud to be part of this group.
We have a new slate of officers on your Executive Board, and I am no longer your President. I have so enjoyed serving in this capacity, and I can't think of anyone better to hand it over to than Happy Gingras, who has served so well as your Vice President for the past two years. There will be another post soon about the full slate of new officers, but for this post, I wanted to celebrate.
Check out the rest of our web site for details about 2019. There's great stuff coming for the 20th anniversary conference celebration.
