President's Message

To begin my term I wanted to take a moment and reflect back on the amazing seminar that just concluded. The hard work and dedication that it took from our outgoing President, Phil Hess, to create the outstanding schedule that we all enjoyed is truly unimaginable. I hope that all of you who attended the Western States Joint Conference (WSJC) absorbed as many lectures and workshops that you could throughout the week; the lineup of speakers were incredible. The combined efforts from all involved individuals were unrelenting, and I sincerely hope that your experiences as attendees have encouraged each one of you to continue to attend future seminars.

Now, it’s time to turn our attention to the future of the Association. We are moving full speed ahead, rapidly evolving to catch up with the times. In just the last year we have become more digitalized with the ability of submitting Membership Applications and Dues electronically and receiving Membership Renewal Cards quicker via email. In the last few years our Webmaster, Jessica Callinan, has brought our website out of the dark ages, making it extremely user friendly, mobile friendly and full of valuable information. Items such as the Digest, Committee and Executive Board Policies and Procedures, historical meeting minutes, scholarship information, the history of CSDIAI, and so much more, can be easily and readily located. The main domain provider for CSDIAI has changed to www.csdiai.org, while CSDIAI does still own the rights to the .com and .net versions as well. For those who attended the WSJC, you were able to enjoy the Guidebook, a smartphone app allowing you to view the schedule and plan your day accordingly, without having to flip from page-to-page highlighting times and locations of the lectures/workshops that you would like to attend. Needless to say, I am excited to see this Association continue to grow, and thrive, as we progress with the times.

For those of you who were not able to attend the WSJC please consider this as your first official invitation to attend CSDIAI’s 2019 Annual Educational Seminar, located in the beautiful San Francisco Bay Area. Information for this seminar, including the hotel reservation link, registration information, and more, will be made available via our website soon.
