Secretary’s Column: Mandy Root

There is a special kind of feeling you get, being surrounded by this amazing energy that happens at every National Convention. Indianapolis did not disappoint! This was my 5th National Convention I’ve had the opportunity to attend, and my 4th as Texas Chapter Secretary. I feel so blessed to be a part of such an amazing and supportive Board! I always have so much fun at the National Conventions, connecting with Therapists from all over the country! I enjoy getting to network, and share ideas, and learn from so many others. It’s always thrilling to reconnect with familiar faces, and friendships made all over the country. Social media certainly helps to keep us all connected throughout the year.

Although each Chapter is unique, one thing remains the same: the need for volunteers! Chapters can’t run on Board members alone, we need our members to step up and be involved! It’s been said before, but it’s worth saying again: Our Chapter will only be as great as “we the Members” decide to make it. What can YOU do to help make our Chapter and membership experience better?  We look forward to seeing you at our next State Convention in Grapevine, TX in 2020!
