Deborah Read from ErgoFit Consulting, Inc. will be heading the Roundtable. I can’t thank these individuals enough for stepping up and making PSHFES vibrant and lively.
Nicole and Zach are working hard to develop an exciting program in terms of Guest Speaker Dinner Talks, Industry Tours, and Educational Sessions for all of us. Similarly, Jim, Xidong's team is brainstorming a variety of ideas to make the upcoming symposium exciting and valuable. Deborah already had a head start in terms of accomplishing the first Roundtable of the year. Randy has been in constant touch with TheARRC.com in revitalizing our website. Please check the revamped website, let Randy or I know what you think of it and how we can further improve its content!
While I am finalizing the first newsletter of the year, I would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank our Past President Janet DeLapp, my mentor, for a job very well done for four long years! More about Janet’s contribution to PSHFES and beyond, in the upcoming Newsletter.
