President’s Message- December 2010
It’s hard to believe that the end of the year is almost here already. Time sure does fly! It has been a great year and I would like to personally wish each and every one of you a very safe and happy holiday season.
With 2010 coming quickly to a close, re-organization of the ICHA Board of Directors is once again upon us. We have plenty of room on our Board, and we are excited to have several new individuals join us that have expressed a desire to serve. We also have two existing Board members whose terms are expiring at the end of 2010, and they have both graciously volunteered to stay on for another term. I appreciate the time and effort that each member of our team puts in on behalf of the ICHA to make great contributions on so many levels. Please be sure to tell them thank you!
On that same note… we are in a very committed search for an ICHA President-Elect for 2011. I will be taking an additional one-year term for 2011 as the ICHA President, with Brian Anderson as the ICHA Vice-President for that same term, in order to assist in filling this very important President-Elect position. Anyone interested is invited to please contact me personally at (208) 709-3543.

A big Thank You to Ryan Hutchinson, Jennie Hale, Chris Smith and Heidi Hadlock-Evans — our ICHA/UCHA Youth Scholarship Coordinators!! They did a great job putting together a fantastic joint Youth Scholarship Auction this year, which was held in Ogden during the UCHA Futurity & Aged Event. Many thanks also to everyone who donated auction items and so generously bid at the auction. We appreciate your assistance in supporting our youth and their educational futures!
