Hello Northeast Region Representatives, it’s great that we get the chance to speak with each other from time to time. This has helped me to get to know each of you and to get your input on what we need to do on the regional level. I would like to extend these meetings to your monthly conference calls with your regions chapters. I have many updates that I would like to share with you and the chapters in your regions. This will also help me to get connected to the Professional and Student chapters in each of your regions. We are always looking for possible solutions to individual project issues, to sharing resources such as mentors, fresh ideas for our website and more. My goal is to increase our potential by identifying common problems and receiving suggestions for successful ways to help those we serve in each project. My line is always open for one-to-one calls for discussion on how we can improve upon our chances to learn from each other. I look forward to hearing from you.
