From the Executive Director:
Celebrating Exceptional Accomplishments at the 62nd Annual Convention
One of my favorite parts of our Annual Convention is the chance to celebrate the members of our extended family who have displayed remarkable dedication, service, or advocacy during the year or throughout their careers. This year's Convention is no different than any before.
With this issue of Our Voice Today, I thought it would be appropriate if I shared with you our 2011 award winners. That way, when you meet these remarkable individuals at our Convention, you'll know exactly who they are and why they deserve such recognition.
