[athen] A note from the Prez

Good morning ATHEN,

Sorry I have not gotten this information out sooner, was out most of
last week due to family medical issues.

As Dann has noted we agreed to support AHG, and assist Howard in
whatever ways we can as a membership. I can not remember if we went
this far, but we have had several discussions about AHG being the
official conference of ATHEN. The AHG conference end ATHEN is one of
our agenda items for our CSUN meeting.

Howard has also asked that we assist him in doing proposal reviews at
CSUN, either directly following the members meeting or in the next day
or so following, and of course I volunteered you all to do so.

If you are interested, and I highly encourage you to, submit a proposal
to present at AHG. This is a good conference for newbie presenters, the
participants tend to be very helpful and supportive. My suggestion is
that you start down the path of professional growth at AHG, get your
feet, knees, or face into the pool and do a presentation on a practice
or process that you feel is innovative and can contribute to the
collective knowledge of our slowing emerging profession.

Ron Stewart
