Presidents Message
Wow- what a year! I cannot believe it is almost time to pass the reins on to someone else, time has flown by so quickly. Thank you all for your support in the past year, with my divorce and the passing of my grandfather and my second career as a habilitation tech for the mentally disabled it has been quite hectic and challenging but I have made it through and I owe each of you a huge hug and Thanks! This is a great organization not only for the connections you make for your career but in your personal life as well. I think each one of us has a testimony to share about a time when an NAIW member has helped us in some way and if we don't have one yet- stick around for a little while longer because it will happen! We are still working on several things- selling knives as a fundraising effort, putting together a financials class for the fall, and now a Regional convention that our state will hold in 2013 in Asheville. Let's keep up the momentum and continue to lift each other and our organization higher and higher. See all of you on Tuesday! Kelly Bryant, CISR RAIP President 2009-2010 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
