March 2021 edition


By Jennifer Mitchen, ISAHU President 2020-2021

ISAHU and each one of our local chapters are in the process of filling their board positions for the next board year, which runs July 1, 2021 – June 30, 2022.

We joke all of the time that once you agree to volunteer, you end up becoming President of a chapter when you are out of the room.  This truly is not the case.  There are so many unknowns in our industry and world right now, we have never been more in need of leadership.  If you have EVER considered serving on your local board or even just on a committee, now is the time to RAISE YOUR HAND!

We missed seeing everyone in person and hope to do so soon.  But, with the current unknown COVID world we are living in, we are happy to have planned and executed our first ever virtual Expo.  Thank you so much for everyone’s participation and patience.
