August 2017 — End of Summer Issue of NAMEtag
Where has the year gone? It seems like it was just yesterday that I was taking on the role of NAME President. Before we know it, the 15th annual conference will be here and we will all be together in Fort Lauderdale.
As everyone is wrapping up their summer and starting the new school year, NAME is also getting ready to start a new year. With a new year comes changes in the leadership team. Before I hand over the reins to Kevin Bauer (MI), President Elect, I want to thank all of the leadership team that I have had the pleasure of working with all year for their dedication and hard work. This year has been a year of changes and questions, many of which are still unanswered but the work that everyone volunteers their time for is invaluable. The organization would not exist without all of the hard work everyone does on behalf of NAME.
I hope to see everyone in Florida in October but if I don’t, please keep an eye out for the NAME Flashes that will be taking the place of the NAMEtags throughout the year. This will allow us to get information out to everyone in real time.
See everyone in Florida!
Shannon Huska (CO)
