While everyone is winding down the traditional school year and getting prepared for the "lazy days of summer," I want to take a moment to thank the 2014-2015 CNM Executive Committee who have put in countless volunteer hours for the benefit of our DPG and our profession. Their dedication and willingness to share their time and talents are greatly appreciated. I also want to personally thank Kathy Allen, our immediate past-chair, for her hard work and leadership over the past year.
For our incoming EC members, thank you for signing on for our exciting journey ahead. Each year I have been involved with CNM, I am amazed and inspired by the talented dietitians among our ranks.
To our members at large, thank you for continuing to be part of our group. Whether you are in a traditional management role or provide other types of leadership to your organization, I guarantee that CNM has something for you! From the robust discussions on our electronic mailing list to our newsletters or our webinars to the symposium, tools, resources, and networking are right at your fingertips. I encourage you all to utilize these resources and share some of your own.
Our DPG belongs to our members. If you have suggestions or ideas on how we can better serve our membership, please don't hesitate to contact me. I hope to meet as many of you as possible during the coming year.
With that, I invite you to join me for the exciting ride ahead with CNM! (And be sure to enjoy a few of those lazy days of summer...)
