MSHA Fall Convention Summary
Many thanks to all of you who attended, participated, volunteered, contributed, voted, laughed, cried, listened, waited, and shared our fall convention with us in Billings. We were pleased with our turn out and our excellent program! Our illustrious treasurer, Shar, is finalizing our numbers and we’ll share those soon. In the meantime, we’d like to thank Molly Beck, our SLP at large and Jenn Closson, our past president for their service to our organization. They will be leaving our board at the end of the year. We will welcome Catherine Drescher. She is changing her role from secretary to president. We also welcome Brigette Watters as our new secretary and Kathleen Delapp-Cohn as our new SLP member at large. Stay tuned for more info on annual meeting, our convention highlights and reporting on the SLP and Audiology presentations.
What do you mean, you're not a morning person?
MSHA ANNUAL MEETING is October 16, 2015 at 7 am at the Crowne Plaza in Billings. Yes, you read that right, 7 am! For the past few years, we’ve had fewer people attend our luncheon, so we are trying something new. We’ll have coffee from City Brew and some breakfast. Our annual meeting is the time we look over all we’ve accomplished in the past year and make plans for the coming year. We elect new officers and recognize the current board members for their service to our organization.
Why just a year ago, Jenn Closson announced her vision for our new website. She and Diane Simpson wanted a user friendly site with visual appeal. One that included a blog from the president as well as guests. If you’ve found this page, you know that MSHA has the vision and the commitment to bring our ideas to life.
If you are a blogger and would like to be linked or guest blog on our site, let us know.
See you soon!- your MSHA president, Rachel

The Latest on License Fees
We’ve been waiting patiently for the Governor to appoint the two new members to the licensure board. They will then be trained and MSHA has asked them to immediately attend to the license fee issue. We are also increasing our visibility and involvement with the interim committee in the legislature that is addressing fees for all licensure boards.
