Message From the President
Spring 2020 NAACCR Narrative
Hello from smokin' hot Boise, Idaho! We just concluded a stretch of over 100-degree days which I am hopeful are over for the year. And the gift of 2020 keeps on giving – COVID hot-spots aside, Boise is still experiencing aftershocks from the 6.5 magnitude earthquake Idaho experienced in March. The original quake and this latest aftershock have permanently altered the peaks of the Sawtooth mountains. Thankfully, there were no reported injuries.
All the forces of 2020 have not deterred NAACCR from continuing its work. First, I would like to congratulate our new Board members who officially took office in June! Winny Roshala will serve as President-Elect and we have two newly elected Representatives at Large: Monique Hernandez from Florida Cancer Data System and Mary Jane King from Cancer Care Ontario; Angela Meisner from New Mexico Tumor Registry was re-elected. The continuing Board members are Maria Schymura (NY), Treasurer; Isaac Hands (KY), Rep at Large; Lorraine Shack (AB, Canada), and Kevin Ward, Rep at Large (GA). Lori Swain from NCRA seamlessly transitioned from her elected position as Sponsoring Member Organization Representative to an Advisory Board Member per our newly adopted bylaws. For our next round of elections, please consider running for the Board. We have a newly formed Nominating Committee - April Austin (NY), Chair; Deb Hurley (SC); and Kim Vriends (PEI, Canada) - who may be reaching out to you! Click here for more.
