Dear SMSHE Members,
I hope all is well and that your summer is shaping up to be your best ever! I am writing this Newsletter to give you some updates on SMSHE and ASHE. This year, so far, our educational events have been conducted exclusively in person and very well attended. I would like to thank all our members and guests for taking the time out of their busy schedules to re-engage our industry in these networking and educational opportunities. I would also like to thank our sponsors and educational meeting presenters for bringing these great opportunities to our members.
I am also extremely excited to inform you that our membership rolls have almost returned to the pre-Covid levels.
I would like to also take this opportunity to make you aware that Dave Boehne, the Awards Committee Chair, has stepped down from his position on the Board. Thank you Dave, for your years of service to our members and Board of Directors. Dave excelled in this position, and we have received the ASHE Platinum level award every year that he has served as the Chair of the Awards Committee. Again, thank you Dave for the work you have performed. We wish you the best on your next endeavors!
With Dave stepping down, we would like to offer this Board position to our membership. Currently, there are two Professional level positions open, and one Associate level position open.
ASHE, just as in previous years, provided our chapter members with great educational opportunities. These opportunities are great because they provide CEUs for participants and are online based. SMSHE will continue to send these opportunities to you through your email, so keep an eye out for them. In addition, ASHE will be hosting their annual conference this year in San Antonio, Texas. I hope to see you in San Antonio this year! We are looking forward to an exciting year of events.
Your SMSHE President,
