I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who helped to make this past convention so successful. Much effort went into planning special opportunities for our board and for our members. Thank you to Amy Parker for working with Perkins School for the Blind to arrange our board meeting, lunch, and tour. We appreciate and thank Perkins for their hospitality. It was great to get off the convention grounds, to visit where so many students are educated daily, visit the museum, and learn about the innovative programs at Perkins. Thank you to Amy and Nicole Johnson for securing our sponsors, working on the social, and the teacher/intervener forum. Thank you Amy for working hard with your committee to select wonderful presentations that represented such a wide range of expertise. Thank you to Karen Koehler for working with the students at the Ohio State School for the Blind on our awards and getting them shipped to convention as well as travelling with our division banner for the Expo Hall. I want to thank Deborah Hatton and her committee for getting our division ready for the standards meetings that took place at convention. Last, but not least, thank you to all of our sponsors for their monetary time and donations to make our convention so nice for our members. We could never do the extra special events for our members without you. THANK YOU! As I returned from convention, I first reflected on our board meeting. We need more help with our division activities. It became evident that we need to ask for help from our membership.
