President’s Message                                   Winter 2011

I just wanted to take a few moments to share with all of you my hopes and goals as your
local component President. It is my intention to help lead us into a more open and access-
able member focused component. I would be delighted to increase membership numbers,
but more important to me is to increase our current member participation. There are many
ways we can have an impact in our own local areas and I would like to see more involvement
from each of us in having that profound of an effect in our communities. Each member and
nonmember has something special to offer and I want to see what you want from us to
better serve you and meet those goals. We are attempting to offer a variety of wonderful
continuing education opportunities and by providing these choices help you become even
better hygienists. What I would like is for each of you to take a moment and email me with
some information about yourself about what you would want offered. I know many will not
take the time because I know we are all busy with work, kids, family and many other
responsibilities, but for those who would, I will personally respond and attempt to find a way
to meet your requests. I would encourage everyone to stop and talk to me if you see me or
shoot out an email or text. I am always available to respond and answer questions or even
just be a listening ear should you so desire. As many of you know LLYADHA is available on
Facebook and while we try to make all information as available as possible on the website,
there are times when it can be quicker to check our Facebook page for the most up to date
information on courses, activities and general information. So just 'like' us and you will be
one of the first to be in the know!

It is my goal to do my best to further our association, be accessible to everyone and meet
your needs! I want to work together to achieve these goals!

Thank You all so much for your support and I look forward to hearing from many of you
soon! Together we can make our association awesome!
