An Open Thank You to the SCHIMA Membership:

What a wonderful group! Almost 200 strong gathering in North Charleston to network, support, learn and most importantly, move forward in making change result in progress!

I would like to thank each of you who joined us for the 2017 Annual SCHIMA Meeting for making the trip and I especially want to thank Christine Lewis and the other members of her wonderful team who planned this enjoyable event for us.

My thanks also go out to my “Committee of Eight” who were more like a committee of fifteen hard workers, and Ralph Morrison, our new CEO along with Loren Brumbaugh’s assistance for getting everyone through the journey to such a successful end.

But we are not through yet! I am going to look for your enthusiastic presence throughout the 2017-2018 year at Regional Meetings and virtual sessions and in helping us make those meetings informative and memorable.

Members like each of you make me proud to say I am a SCHIMA President!

Diana L. Gardner
SCHIMA President 2016-2018
