My name is Kimberly Bell and I am excited to be back serving MSHA as the President again. You might ask yourself, did she just say “again?” That is right, I did! I have served in the capacity of MSHA President two times before in the past twenty years. You might think that sounds a bit crazy, but I have loved every minute that I have served MSHA and the fantastic members! Why else would I be back for a third time? I tell you this in hopes of encouraging others to consider getting involved more with MSHA. Take the leap into joining a committee or perhaps later running for an executive board position. We have an executive board that is eager to work with and mentor new members who would like to get involved at whatever capacity fits into your lifestyle.
MSHA had a successful Winter Workshop on January 11, 2019 with speakers Dr. Nan Rattner and Dr. Jay Lucker. Registration is now open for our Spring Symposium on April 26, 2019 which is being held in Columbia this year. Featured speakers include Jake Greenspan (Introduction to The Greenspan Floortime Therapy Approach), Shari Robertson (Dealing with Difficult People, Managing Time and Stress) and Paul Rao (Ethical Considerations in Speech Language Pathology and Audiology). We hope that you and your colleagues can join us for our sprint event. I encourage you to register early as seating will be limited in some sessions.
So, if you are asking yourself, “How do I get involved?” Please contact Lisa at the MSHA office with your interest areas and we will be sure to find you something that fits into your schedule.
