  • Conference in San Francisco

    Everyone knows what a busy schedule Lisa keeps and she's off again. She and I will be leaving for San Francisco (NASPE Conference) tomorrow and looking forward to meeting several of our members tomorrow nite. Tomorrow nite's meeting was announced in another post (search for SADS). Kelly will be in the HCMA office and performing with her usual ever-so-efficient skills and talents. Lisa will be in touch with her several times daily. She will be able to reach Lisa if and when the need arises, so don't hesitate to call the HCMA office. Lisa and I will be checking in with the message board as often as we can, but need to see our available resources first. We don't always have a room with good internet access. Thank you to all who keep the message board moving and help to answer so many questions. Keep up the good work, we're counting on you. I'm sure you've all read Reenie's post by now, she has a bit less time for the board for a while, but I know you all will come thru to help us out. You're great! Linda
