Message from the President
Hello STAND members,
As we close out the year, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank each of you for helping support your local STAND activities. Thanks also to the 2015-2016 South Texas Leadership Board for putting together numerous CEU opportunities through our monthly meetings and webinars, community events & partnerships, volunteer opportunities, and hosting really fun social and networking events too. We have had such an AWESOME year, thanks to everyone who coordinated and participated in all our phenomenal events. STAND is one of the leading districts in Texas with such active engagement from our members and community at large, so thank you again for all your efforts in promoting STAND's mission & goals.
We are looking forward to future opportunities and continued success with the upcoming TAND Regional transition. Please be sure to attend our last STAND meeting of the year on May 19th, where we will be featuring Jan Tilley as our main presenter, and will also have Angela Lemond, incoming TAND President, who will be speaking to the group about details of the transition to the Regional structure. I'm also excited to announce that Sonia Cotto-Moreno will be serving as the "San Antonio Area Liaison" position and will be the primary point person locally that will be working with TAND and members to facilitate local activities. Look for more information to come from TAND and Sonia in the next few months, and hopefully everyone will continue to stay connected to provide any support in planning 2016-2017 meetings, events, and volunteer opportunities to keep our local activities going.
I have been honored to serve as the 2015-2016 STAND President with such a great group of colleagues & friends, and I look forward to connecting with you all again for future opportunities.
Caroline Roffidal-Blanco, MS, RDN, LDN2015-2016 STAND President
