Message from the President

And away we go…

Thank you for the opportunity to serve as your CADAT president.  I am blessed to be supported by a gifted board and look forward to what our future holds.  I have big shoes to fill as Melodi Randolph, our now Immediate past president, takes her new position, and want to recognize what an amazing job she did while in the role of president.

I want to thank all those who participated in our conference!  It was a great success thanks to you!  We will be reviewing the conference surveys to get your feedback and suggestions.  Believe it or not we will be starting to plan for 2024 in the next month or two.

The CADAT board will hit the ground running as we continue to collaborate on AB481, start planning for our mid-year virtual meeting, and complete our recruitment for committees.

So, thank you again for your support and trust as we all move ahead into a new and exciting term!

Shari Becker, CDA, RDA, FADAA, A.S.
