On November 11, the Board of Trustees and the Committee Chairs gathered at a conference room near O’Hare Airport for the Mid-Winter Meeting. Some of us traveled from Michigan, others from the West and East Coasts. We debated, discussed and made decisions concerning the business of the CSA. We looked back on the summer of 2017 and planned for the summer of 2018. What a gift the Assembly is to all of us, and what a pleasure it was to see summer faces as winter approaches.

At the meeting, Julie Walton announced that she will be stepping down from the position of Secretary. Julie has been doing a wonderful job and promises to continue through August of 2018. Ideally the new Secretary would shadow Julie this summer, assuring a smooth transition. If you or anyone you know would be interested in finding out more about this position, take a look at the posted job description. I’m trying to think of a way to entice you to come work with me and the fun and fabulous BOT. It’s enjoyable! You get to know the inner workings of the CSA! You get to see summer faces in November! Contact me if you’re interested.

Keep an eye out for the Assembly News this spring to see the many thing to look forward to in the summer of 2018.
