Message from the President

Hello MSHA Members:

Thank you so much for your continued support and participation in your Association. I am looking forward to working with you in the coming year to continue to make MSHA great!

We have some new members to the Executive Board and they are bringing their personalities, creative ideas, and energy with a desire to grow our membership, update our use of technology, and increase our involvement in advocacy. This is an exciting time to increase your involvement in your association! We have a variety of committees, the Convention Planning Team, and the Executive Board – all ways that you can become more involved in MSHA and reap the benefits of your membership. All of the Executive Board members are here to answer your questions and assist you in finding the best place for you to use your talents in helping MSHA to grow.

Planning has begun for the 2017 Convention and the theme is Communication: Creating Connections-Building Bridges.  The Convention Planning Team is hard at work arranging for speakers to once again provide a Convention that is worth your time and money.

As usual, many changes are in the works for our members providing services in the schools. We are working closely with MOCASE, DESE, and many other agencies to address language criterion, the Dyslexia Task Force, and other issues that affect our members. Please consult the website, MSHA Link, MSHA Text, as well as contacting your Executive Board members for additional information.

We are your Executive Board and this is your Association – what can we do for you?

Sharon Sowder, MA, CCC-SLP
MSHA President 2016-17
