As we concluded 2017, so did we fully transition to our new executives who were chosen by the membership body. This will be the third executive committee since the association was established back in 2010 and it’s been an incredible journey as we’ve grown significantly as an organization and a sisterhood. Our gratitude goes to the last executive committee for their immense contribution towards this growth and dedication in serving us. We also recognize the contributions of our founding executives for their incredible work and selfless years of service.
We ask you to continue to support this new committee as you have our past executives as we look ahead with excitement at how they will further transform our young association to reach new heights.
