ASHE TN Valley Members and Friends,

I hope the first month of the New Year has found you all in good health and high spirits. I know that our Officers, Board Members, and Chairs are already working hard to make sure that this upcoming year is packed full of even more opportunities for our members to learn and connect. But as we look forward to 2021, I wanted to take a moment to reflect on what we’ve been able to accomplish over the past year. 2020 was a whirlwind year for all of us. Starting up a brand-new section of ASHE in the midst of a global pandemic certainly had its challenges. However, I think that ultimately the timing was perfect, because being a part of ASHE TN Valley provided much needed opportunities to stay connected with our colleagues and expand our technical knowledge.
Above you will see some of our highlights over the last year. I am extremely proud of all our Section has been able to accomplish, and we couldn’t have done it without the hard work and dedication of our Officers, Board Members, Chairs, and all our members. We also could not have done it without the support of our sponsors and sister ASHE Sections. Thank you all for helping ASHE TN Valley have an amazing first year. I can’t wait to see where we go from here!

ASHE TN Valley President 2020-2021
