Message from President Catherine Palmer, PhD | October 2019

The new board convened last week (October 17-19) for three days of strategic and high-energy discussions. Joining the board for part of the meeting, council and partner chairs further enriched discussions about some of the bigger initiatives of the organization. Their participation underscored the value of our new governance structure and also helped to identify some additional needed tweaks to refine the council model for maximizing their value in overseeing committee work and informing board discussions.

While in the DC area, the board engaged in a mini-Hill day that involved individual office visits and a joint briefing with representatives of ADA and ASHA. All board members reported very positive experiences, and we are pleased to report success in eliciting a few more sponsors for the joint legislation.
