As we find ourselves embarking upon a new year, we reflect back on 2018 to celebrate all that the year brought to us and all we hope to accomplish in 2019. With engaging programming in our locals and through our SIGs, 2018 was a very successful year for our Region. Our inaugural regional conference was quite a highlight of the year, bringing together more than 250 members for a day packed full of education, insights and networking. I’ve been truly privileged to serve as president of our region’s governing board of directors. I have enjoyed the opportunity to connect with our colleagues across D.C., Maryland and Virginia, and to meet so many of you at the 2018 LMA Annual Conference. We have such a strong and passionate membership, and I look forward to all that 2019 and beyond have to offer.
In this final 2018 issue of our newsletter, you will find some great program reviews from our conference, profiles of our Your Honor Awards winners and some articles to help you focus on ending the year strong and keeping that momentum alive well into the New Year. We are in the process of transition, and your 2019 leadership team is outstanding. We are fortunate to have such dedicated volunteer leaders to grow and enhance our region and its membership. And for those who would like to become more involved, there are always opportunities to engage. If you have any interest in joining a committee or simply learning more about leadership opportunities in the Mid-Atlantic Region, please do not hesitate to email me. I would love to hear from you!
I wish everyone a most prosperous New Year!
