Dear ALATA Members,

Greetings!  I hope that this finds everyone doing well and that everyone made it home safely if you were one of the fortunate ones to have made it to the annual clinical symposia.

For those of you that were able to attend, I hope that you enjoyed the presentations and were able to take valuable information from them.  We are working on obtaining the talks from the speakers so that they may be uploaded onto our website.

Several awards were given out during that weekend and if you were not at the Annual Members Meeting on Saturday please check out our website as they will be posted along with photos of the award winners.  Congratulations to all of the recipients for a job well done.  Please make sure that you congratulate your fellow colleagues on their accomplishment.

Stay tuned to e-blasts as well as continue to check the website for information on our legislative affairs as we get geared up for the next legislative session.  In addition please stay tuned for additional information regarding the State Board of Education.
