MAA President's Message
It has been a great year for me to serve as your President. I want to thank all the people who volunteered their time, talent and energy this year to making this organization thrive in it’s 60th year. This includes board members, committee members, committee chairs who took time and energy out of their day to work to improve this profession. Over a thousand hours of volunteer work have gone into this association this year! This is what makes this organization thrive. Thank you!
A special thank you to Linda Stevenson and Scott Engerson who both asked me to join this board in 2012. I have been made better for just knowing the two of you. Participating in this organization has helped my career and my professional development. Thank you!
Thank you to my family who has had to deal with my time away from them. Thank you for your constant support, strength and always reminding me to enjoy the journey.
If you have not attended a committee meeting or joined an initiative, then I want to invite you now to find a way that you can strengthen this organization for the next 60 years. Now is the time. We must continue to develop relevant education and resources to continue the professional development that is so important to our members. I look forward to working with 2020 President John Dahlquist as we start the next 60 years of MAA!
My wish is for you to enjoy a safe and joyful holiday season.
Paula Jastifer, President
