I am so humbled to have been awarded the President’s Award by the NAPO-AZ chapter this month.  Working with an amazing board of directors that included Brenda Scagnetti Clement, Shelle Snyder, Robin Adrihan, Doreen Collins, and Bridges Conner was a delight.

Together this team worked through a year’s worth of challenges being short-staffed in key support positions and early resignations of board members. It is heartwarming to come to the realization that when you work together as a team, the challenges become opportunities to learn, to persevere, and to overcome.

This year the 2014 NAPO National Conference will be held in Scottsdale and we are honored to be the host city. Our chapter will be represented well by our members and you will know us by the yellow bandanas.  Hope to see you there!
