July 1 - In the midst of summer, it's a time for reflection, regrouping, and hopefully, some relaxation! I enjoyed seeing many colleagues at ACHA's recent annual meeting in San Antonio. Location, and hence, travel expense matters as over 400 NECHA colleagues attended the meeting last year in Boston. This year, just under 80 gathered in Texas. Perhaps they're all saving up for NECHA 2014 at Wentworth by the Sea!
Congratulations to several people from New England - Chad Henderson, lifetime achievement award; Gerri Taylor, ACHA fellow; Haley MCarthy, new professional award. Click here for details.
Nominations for the 2014 Louise Gazzara and President's awards, along with applications for this year's NECHA Grant are currently under review. Stay tuned as we announce the recipients in the fall issue of NECHA e-News!
Enjoy your summer!
Denise McGoldrick, MS, MCHES President, NECHA
