Hi Everyone, It is hard to believe that I am President already! I started out in OCRA on the nominating Committee, then served for two consecutive years as Secretary. I am excited to see what new and exciting things 2017 has in store for OCRA.
I am so proud to have the wonderful Executive Officers to serve with this year. Laura Wallace, Jennifer Johnson, Vicki Shindler and Catherine Gunn will serve with me and together we will work to strengthen our organization.
One of the things we will be looking into this year is the possibility of Regional Conferences that have been suggested by a couple of different facilities.
We are still working on the Website and getting the kinks worked out. Vicki Shindler has been a big help with this project. We plan to update the guidelines as well.
Asante has stepped up to host the Fall Workshop this year. It will be held in Medford, September 27th through the 29th. Amanda is checking on some new ideas, and I am excited to see what they have in store this year. In an effort to keep OCRA professional and supportive, I would ask that any questions or concerns be brought to the Executive Committee instead of other members so we can have an opportunity to address them first. I look forward to serving as your President this year.
