President's Corner

Here I sit on the eve of 2020.  It is hard to imagine that 20 years ago the world was in a state of panic wondering if computer systems would crash when the year changed from 1999 to 2000.  That is where I am right now, well maybe not in a panic, but in a state of being overwhelmed.  As I see it though, the transition will be smooth just like it was in 1999 and I have a great support team in place.
Before we begin 2020, I would like to thank Rachael Phillips for the outstanding job she did this last year.  Rachael brought new ideas to the organization and streamlined the planning process for the annual professional development conference.  Thank you, Rachael!!!
As for 2020, I hope we can find some new places for our organization to meet, grow our attendance at our monthly meetings, and involve/highlight some of our young professionals that are finishing their degrees.  I also see a huge opportunity for use to have a very successful professional development conference with a variety of outstanding speakers and topics.  However, the success of the organization doesn’t totally belong to the board.  The success is also dependent on our members and their participation.  
I welcome your ideas.  If you have an idea to help our section grow, please do not hesitate to reach out.  Our board meetings are always open so feel free to join us there as well. 
I look forward to this new and exciting adventure as this year's Saint Louis AIHA Local Section President. Hope to see you all at the January 9th meeting.
