The 2019-2020 season started with a vision meeting at Shannon & Wilson’s office attended by members were the new officer corps was elected. Our vision is “Enhancing collaboration among groups serving our profession by seeking and being responsive to member feedback, maintaining and improving the group’s website and seeking and improving joint activities with affiliated organizations. We also plan to continue improving organization and day-to-day operations of the group to facilitate information sharing and informed decisions based on the current budget and past data.”
Our group continues to support the UW graduate program through the Robert D. Holtz Endowed Fellowship. Established in 2007 with an initial endowment of $50,000, this find has grown to over $400,000. In 2015 we made a pledge to contribute $125,000 within 5 years with matching contribution from UW on meeting that pledge. This year our group will complete that donation to the fund.
