PRESIDENT'S MESSAGES | WINTER 2012
By: Nancie Grabow
Another new year lies ahead-time for new beginnings, starting with the changes for our AADMRT Board. Many thanks go to Ron Thatcher as he has served a total of 4 years on the Board (this term!) with the past year as president. That means I am now the acting president. There have many pairs of able shoes from the past that I will do my best to try to fill. Terms have also ended for Judy Hurt and Dr. Bateman (thank you both as well) and our newest additions to the Board are Tracey Saucier, Annette Nelson and Marcelle Jones. Welcome aboard ladies! Along with Jeannie Robles and Dr. Dania Tamimi (and of course Executive Secretary Merry Hampton and Treasurer Devery Wallace) we are the first all women AADMRT Board. That IS a new beginning.
Mark your calendars for the AADMRT Fall Convention which will be held October 5th and 6th at The Depot in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I happen to be hosting this along with my friend, co-worker and now fellow Board member Annette Nelson. We are working hard to find good, relevant speakers and hoping to add a little fun as well. We are sure you will love Minneapolis in the fall-so plan ahead for some extra days of exploring. It is not too early to reserve your rooms and that can be done by going to the following link on the web: The Depot Renaissance Minneapolis Hotel?>>. You will also find on that site some great information about Minneapolis as well under their Visit link.
Please feel free to contact any of the Board members with questions and concerns you have. Our first Board of Directors meeting will be held on February 25th. If you have a specific topic you would like covered please bring it to our attention prior to that date. We are here to serve all of our members.
