As we have come to the end of another annual conference, I want to thank you for making it the most attended conference. We have reviewed the evaluations from the classes at the conference that you submitted. These let us know what you want and what you did and didn’t like and I thank you for the favorable comments. Our board will work towards fulfilling your education needs in the com-ing year with the suggestions you have given us.
I am honored to serve one more year as your President. I am look-ing forward to our 2020 Region VIII Conference and hoping each of you is doing the same. We now have all positions filled on the board and will soon send out our committee lists.
This year’s theme was selected by Susan Farnsworth who was to be UMCA President in 2020. Susan left her position at Santaquin City for another position. We will miss what she brought to our as-sociation in a professional, friendly, kind, and caring manner. The theme is: “Reach for Success - The Key to Achieving Excellence”. I will keep this theme as it is perfect as we move forward this year.
I wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving with those you love; a Mer-ry Christmas; and a fabulous New Year filled with goals that you will achieve; the ability to believe in yourselves; and that you will take the time to invest in yourselves.
