Message from the President
|Caryll Dziedziak, SOHA President|
Greetings to all members! As I gathered my thoughts for this final message, I found myself reflecting on the many creative and engaging SOHA members with whom I’ve had the great pleasure to meet. While it is always enjoyable to see familiar faces at our Annual Conference, I am particularly pleased to have seen so many new, young and energetic faces! This is vital for the longevity of our organization. So I encourage all of the longtime SOHA members to reach out and encourage the continued involvement of those new to SOHA.
MARK YOUR CALENDARS!
