From the President
I am thrilled and honored to serve as your VAFRE President for the 2017-18 year. This is such an exciting time for VAFRE. We have a new strategic plan - click here to see the plan. We held our annual VAFRE Board of Directors retreat a couple of weeks ago and focused on ways to implement this new plan. I was so impressed with the number of creative smart ideas that our group came up with in one short afternoon! We will be providing more information on all of this as we move into the year and we welcome your input! I encourage you to consider joining a VAFRE committee. A number of you noted your interest in the recent annual survey and our committee chairs are following up now. If you did not complete the survey but would like to help out on a committee, please contact Mary Kidd.
Let me take a moment and share a bit about my background. I have been a member of VAFRE since 2001 and have enjoyed getting to know so many of you over the years. I am Director of Development for Northstar Academy which is a k-12 school for students with disabilities. If you have never been to visit us, please stop by - I would be delighted to show you around our school!
Best wishes to you for a wonderful rest of your summer! I look forward to seeing you at our September meeting. Please let me know if you have any thoughts, suggestions, concerns or if you just want to say hello!
2017-2018 VAFRE President
