Dear OSHA Members and Friends,

“You will enrich your life immeasurably if you approach it with wonder and discovery, and always challenge yourself to try new things.” --Nate Berkus

This quote has become a new mantra for me personally and professionally. I am excited to serve as the new President of OSHA and approach this new role with wonder and discovery.

OSHA has accomplished so much these past seasons! We have newly updated bylaws in place, a robust website and exciting new plans for our yearly conference this fall. The Executive Committee is looking forward to focusing on new membership and outreach to speech-language pathologists and audiologists across the state. We are exploring new opportunities for our membership in the areas of online learning through the OSHA website. The online learning workshops will provide our members with easy access to affordable and quality continuing education.

I am also excited to announce a planning retreat with the Executive Committee and our ASHA liaison, Janet Deppe, scheduled for this fall. Stay tuned for further updates. We hope that the changes that come out of the retreat will propel us into the future where we can focus on membership growth, exciting outreach programs, and new goals for the association.
