|Caryll Dziedziak, SOHA President|
Greetings to our members and a warm welcome to new members!
ORGANIZE! ORGANIZE! ORGANIZE! No, we are not forming a new social movement. It’s much more basic than that! Over the past year, we have been very busy organizing years of SOHA files, cleaning up our Membership Directory, expanding the scope of our newsletters, updating our website, and increasing our intra-organizational communication. And a big “thanks” for much of this work goes to our new Graduate Assistant, Stefani Evans. So, as we approach the close of 2014, the SOHA Board feels as though we’ve finally tidied up our “cluttered desk!”
