President's New Year 2010 Letter
January 6, 2010

3. That we continue being a vocal and visible advocate for Council on Agings
and the seniors they serve.
4. That we continue to develop and expand trainings and conferences for all

our membership in this association and to make the Aging Network more
visible on the local, regional and state levels.
It’s a new year and
time for all of us to renew our commitment to SCACAD and the communities we
serve and to find new ways to progress and promote our Association. As your
President, I look forward, as always, to your suggestions on improving our
