Regional Update

Hello, Southeast Region:

I want to thank you for your support during the past four years. It has been an honor to serve you on the KASP Board.   I am grateful for your continued participation in professional development and engagement in advocacy for children.  I will be stepping down as your Regional Director in January 2018.

As I write this, we are just days away from the Fall 2017 Annual Convention.  On Friday, we'll all find out who has been elected to serve as your new Regional Director.  I look forward to working with that person in order to get them started with their new responsibilities. 

You can continue to reach out to me anytime, even if I am not serving in an official capacity.  You may continue to contact me via email (jason.wright *at* greenbush.org) or through the Contact Me page at my personal website.

All my best,
Jason (10/3/2017)
