A Holiday Message:
This will be the last ASPR Weekly of 2011. Since the first issue on May 10 of this year, ASPR Weekly has been keeping you apprised of important ASPR news and events. I hope that you’ve found it to be informative and that you’ll continue to read it regularly throughout 2012.
As the year comes to a close, I would like to say thank you to our volunteer Board of Directors and Committee Chairs for their time and dedication they give to ASPR as leaders of our organization. Their efforts and guidance are what make ASPR the wonderful educational and networking resource that it is. I would also like to thank our many volunteer committee members who dedicate their time, opinions, ideas, and expertise on the many projects and initiatives of our organization. And last, but certainly not least, I’d like to thank all of our members for making the decision to become and remain a member of ASPR.
I wish you all a very happy holiday season!
