After about 15 years away, I found myself back with the Council of State Association Presidents (CSAP) at the spring meeting in Little Rock, AR, May 17 & 18. I was honored to represent SDSLHA in Londa’s place as she had more important matters (her son’s and daughter’s high school graduation celebration) to attend to. (Congratulations, Londa and family!) This trip evoked so many memories for me. It was at CSAP in Omaha, NE in the early 2000s that I connected with our current ASHA President, Shari Robertson, for the first time. Through that meeting many years ago, I made a life-long friend.  SDSLHA has benefitted from Shari’s convention presentations and vendor support over the years, too. Connections like this are one of the many benefits of our participation as an association in CSAP. Click here for the entire CSAP Recap
