Our Co-Reps Pass the Baton

It's time for us, Georgia and Laura, to transition to our new role as co-chairs of the upcoming State of Diversity exhibit. We want you to know how much we have enjoyed being the SAQA reps for Oregon. We have gained much from the SAQA conferences but even more from being in our home state and working with you. We started with little and have seen a wonderful network develop. It will only get better as more and more of us participate to further the goals of SAQA here.

In our meetings with your incoming reps, Betty Daggett and Jean Wells Keenan, we've learned that they have some great stuff coming for you, too, but it's their turn to start waving the SAQA banner here in Oregon. We want to thank you all for your encouragement and friendship, and let you know that we have enjoyed being your reps more than we ever thought possible. We join all of you in welcoming Betty and Jean. They'll be in touch with you soon.
