Fall is my favorite time of the year, mostly because of the cool temperatures, but also because we get to soak in the sights of beautiful foliage made up of rich, vibrant colors before the trees begin to shed their leaves and start anew.  

OSHA is similar in that way.  We have gathered Executive Council members, special committee members, and our general membership to share the rich, vibrant ways in which we serve our students, our families, and our patients across the state.  Much like the foliage, we delve our time and energy into making beautiful outcomes.  But, there becomes a time when we must shed our leaves and start anew.  Our bylaws have become antiquated requiring outdated procedures to drive our association.  It has become time to shed the old and began anew.  If you visit our website, you’ll notice that our bylaws have been overhauled and updated to reflect current practice and procedures. We hope that this change will propel us into the future where we can focus on membership growth, outreach to speech-language pathologists and audiologists across the state, and new goals for the association.    

It has been a rewarding year thus far and there is more to come. Take time to enjoy the beauty of this season but also the beauty in what you provide on a daily basis to so many.

Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall.” F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

Let’s work together, learn from one another, and nurture this organization to its potential. Please let us hear from you!
