Dear HGPS members,
I am honored to be serving as your President and look forward to the next two years. I view HGPS as a “Holding Environment” for our current and prospective members. My hope is that we continue to support each other in our many endeavors and continue to reach out to our new members and the community.
When I attended the Affiliates meeting (Presidents of various Group Affiliates throughout the nation meet together) at AGPA in New Orleans, I gained an even greater appreciation for the strength, longevity, leadership and vision of HGPS.
I am very pleased to announce the Officers, Chairpersons and Advisory Board members, a good blend of highly experienced veterans and newcomers with fresh ideas, for the next two year term:
1st VP/President Elect: Jana Rosenbaum
2nd VP: Connie Moore
3rd VP: Melanie Morrison
