Happy New Year!

I have always loved the rhythms and cycles in our world and in our lives. The promise of each “new beginning” is enticing and energizing, filling me with hope for what’s to come. As you look ahead, consider the exciting opportunities available to you through ACDA. The national conference in Kansas City offers a fantastic array of interest sessions and concert performances. Register soon and book your hotel, if you have not already done so!

Here in Minnesota, your state board of directors will be meeting soon. Our work will bring focus to the implementation of initiatives from our strategic planning process, 20/20 in 2020. Additionally, planning for Summer Dialogue and the next State Conference is underway. I invite you to contact your district rep or an executive officer with your ideas and requests for programming.
