Hello and Season Greetings
from the ThAAA volunteer Team
As this year comes to a close and I write our “E-News” letter, I reflect on all the things that have happened for the ThAAA.
We celebrated our 10th Annual Education Day! We were blessed to have fantastic speakers, a flavorful lunch and dinner, numerous award nominations and a humorous comedian to end the long day.
During the AGM we obtained a full Board of Directors which is 8 members, we doubled the Promotions Committee to 6 members, developed a Regulations Committee of 6 members and we still have volunteer positions available for students to join the Student Advisory Committee.
Our 11th Annual Education Day planning is underway with updated “Call for Speakers” and “Award Nomination” links. We ask that you spread the word that we are searching for speakers and nominations to make our Education Day in 2018 another growing success.
But most of all, from myself and our Volunteer Team, we hope you have a wonderful, joyous Christmas as we look forward to the New Year!
Reminder: Memberships for NEW members for the remainder of the 2017/2018 membership year are half price. Our membership year runs May – April of each year. Completed forms can be sent via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or mailed to the address on the form.

I hope everyone has an enjoyable Winter Season.
