Dear SMSHE Membership:

As our year winds to an end I pause to remember the memorable year we have had. On December 11th, we hosted our annual Holiday Luncheon at Glen Oaks Country Club. We had a great turn-out and were able to talk about the direction of SMSHE and enjoy a great holiday lunch together.

During our Holiday Luncheon, we were able to present donations to Janet Ames of the Penrickton Center for Blind Children totaling $5,800.00. These donations are supporting children who are blind and have at least one other disability. Each of you, as members of SMSHE, are supporting this amazing non-profit group. You should know that the parents of these children regard this as a one-of-a-kind resource. Some have even uprooted their family from other states just to avail this vital resource to their child.

As we look toward 2020, one of the exciting events that I’m looking most forward to next spring is our 2020’ SMSHE Symposium. NSF International, located in Ann Arbor, MI has graciously offered to host our two-day Symposium. Moving from a single day to a two-day event enables SMSHE to provide greater value to our members and make it a “can’t-miss” event.

Our next exciting event is “Vegas Night”, looking forward to seeing you there (Jan. 23rd. Glen Oaks Country Club). Come on 7’s, mama needs a new pair of shoes…

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukah, happy holidays, and to all a Happy New Year!

Your SMSHE President-Elect,
Jack Evans, MBA, PMP, CHFM, CHSP
