2023 – 2024 Board of Directors

Notification of Adjustment to Board

Hello Members,

I regret to inform you that our president-elect Amy Bolin-Deon, has formally sent us her resignation for serving on the board of directors for WSHIMA as the 2024/2025 President. We have valued her amazing leadership as one of the board members this past year. She has stepped down due to commitments and personal/family needs.

We all realize that life comes at us like a firehose so many times in our journey. This is why here at WSHIMA, we prepare for these types of situations. We have a past president, current president, and president-elect. As the current sitting president, I will continue to serve in this role for 2024/2025 to provide the needs in continuing our service of educational opportunities and support to our members. Georgia Green is our current president-elect for 2024/2025. She will be supporting the WSHIMA board in her new role starting July 2024.

Though I will miss Amy’s presence, I totally understand that family comes first and life brings so many variations on the journey. All the members of the board are pulling together to support me as the continuing president and Georgia as the incoming president, and we’ll be able to cover all the functions/duties of the board.

I look forward to serving all of you this year, continuing as your President for WSHIMA! We have our strategic planning this June and I am excited about what we are planning to put together for your educational support.

Sincerely,
Dr. Sunni D. Borghi, 2023 – 2025 WSHIMA President
