    --Bring energy and aloha 

    --Have fun and engaging ways to recognize our members and our work

    --Grow our membership and increase opportunities, esp. in IDEA

    --And, continue to help and support one another!!! We are stronger together. 

    So, let’s unleash our collective power by adventuring together, do new things, and make this year one of the best yet for ourselves, profession and community! *Photo taken at Mount Rainier on New Year’s Day; first time I’ve ever been snowshoeing.
