PRESIDENT ‘S MESSAGE
Dear NCAFCS Friends,
I am so honored that you have placed your faith in me to allow me to be your 2021—2022 President.
Even though we have not been able to meet face-to-face for the past almost two years, your Executive Board have been hard at work for you. I would like to take a moment to thank Lynne Bell for her service as our President in a turbulent time. Also special thanks to Michelle Derouin and her committee for planning our first virtual annual meeting. There were a few glitches but all in all, I feel that the annual meeting was a success. Michelle is now on maternity leave with her new pride and joy, Genevieve Arwen Derouin, who was born on August 15, 2021 at 8:20 pm.
Hopefully, our next annual meeting will be face-to-face in Kitty Hawk, NC. Valerie Williams is hard at work getting us ready for a grand educational and relaxing time. Let’s all pray and hope that Covid-19 will allow us to meet.
Check the Summer Edition of the Focus newsletter for lots of information that you should take note of and prepare for great events. It is time to nominate yourself or fellow members for awards and recognition. Also, the Katherine Lyons award is available for your research project.
Please be safe and follow the protocol for restrictions based on Covid-19. Take some time for yourself and your family.
