From RID President Dawn Whitcher, M.A., CI and CT, NIC

Hello!  It’s getting close to December.  This year has gone by so quickly.

As I reflect on 2015, the year has been busy, it’s been awesome, but it’s also had some tough spots as well.  There have been ups and downs through the year.  But, there’s also been a lot of fun!

As an example, there was the RID National Conference,  we had a great number of people come in, interact with each other, and learn from each other.  We had a great time.

Many state conferences are currently  happening, with people getting together.  We’ve noticed that there are many enthusiastic leaders stepping up and taking leadership positions. It’s great to see this level of commitment happening at both the state and national levels.

I look forward to 2016.  We will continue to face some challenges, of course. I’m very optimistic that together, working as partners, as a team, we will be fine.

From us, to you – enjoy your holidays.

To the volunteer leaders – thank you for your work this year.  For the staff – you are incredible – thank you for your work.  And, thanks to the Board for your ongoing commitment.

Thank you!
