From the Executive Director.
It has been my great pleasure to serve as Executive Director of this wonderful organization. I can absolutely say that the relationships I have formed in the WHA will last a lifetime-something I see repeated with many members as well. Especially gratifying for me is seeing the commitment of so many people towards the common goals of the WHA. I sincerely appreciate the wide-array of support that we receive in the headquarters-from people taking on committee work, task force jobs, Executive Council work, and important moral support.
Since my last letter to you in the Fall, we will have had three more symposia: one in Fremantle, one in Hanoi, and one in Barcelona. We are also deeply involved in planning for our summer conference in Costa Rica, which is on course to be our largest conference since Beijing. If you have not made plans to attend yet, please see how reasonably priced it is to attend and that this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity will be filled with fun, friendship, scholarship, and learning in a magical setting.
In 2015, we will meet for our annual conference in Savannah, with the Hyatt as the conference headquarters, and we will be offering additional symposia which cater to smaller and more focused groups. Please contact me or the Conference Committee Chair with your suggestions on future sites for both conferences and symposia.
WHA has also completely redone its website to be more user-friendly; we hope you will agree. Please send us your comments on not only how we can improve the site to better meet your needs, but make the WHA all it can be.
Thank you again for your membership and continued support of the association.
