Welcoming (left to right) Morgan Trahan, incoming Membership Chair, Doris Demers, Industry Chair, Donna Reynolds, incoming President Elect, Deb Riso, incoming President, Michele Dupont, Treasurer, Chrissie Gabriel, incoming Manager Employee Representative, and Amy Cassidy, incoming Conference Chair. Here's to a great year for SNA of NH!
As we close out the 2018 school year, I’d like to take a moment to thanks those dedicated board members who helped keep our association going strong. It takes more than a group of individuals to have a successful organization, our members are the most important piece of the puzzle here. Thank you all, for attending our conferences and giving us your feedback on what you need for success. Please consider joining our board so that your talents can help make us even stronger. We have some openings on the board and even more spots to fill on committees. The more people that become involved, the better it will be for everyone in our state.
On September 15th, 2018, our Fall Conference will be held at the Grappone Center in Concord. This will enable us to hold both the conference and the vendor show in one day. It will be an outstanding opportunity for our Industry members who we rely on throughout the year. So, mark your calendars then move over to our EVENTS page and register today. Our keynote speaker is dynamic and we know you won’t be disappointed!
Congratulations again to Braedon Miller, a senior at Merrimack Valley HS. He is the recipient of a $1000 scholarship from SNA of NH. He plans to continue his education at Johnson & Wales University where he will pursue a degree in Culinary Arts. Well done Braedon!
Lastly, thank you all for the opportunity to serve as your president. It has been a crazy year. The time flew, but we got so much done! We have a new website, we have a new board organizational chart, new bylaws, policy and procedures were updated, job descriptions were updated and so much was done to organize our books. Your association is getting better all the time. I feel confident that our incoming board will continue moving our association forward. Deb Riso, Donna Reynolds and Michele Dupont have worked hard to make the upcoming conference a great one. It’s early in the year, so you’ll be able to put what you learn to good use right off the bat! Make sure to register early because for once, we have limited registrations for both vendors and members.
Have a safe, restful summer vacation but don’t forget to register for conference before August 15th!
