SHPE Call to Action
April 25, 2013
Dear SHPE Stakeholders and Members,
Every day I meet individuals who truly care about SHPE, have dedicated many years to the organization, love and want SHPE to be truly successful. These individuals are willing to roll up their sleeves to make changes in a positive and cooperative environment. Today, those who serve on the National Board of Directors (NBOD), Industrial PartnerSHPE Council (IPC), Management Committee and national staff do so because they see a challenge and are willing to bring people together to resolve it, see an opportunity and inspire others to join in the effort. SHPE has made phenomenal strides because of the cooperative nature of how the organization operates today. If you are one of those ambassadors for SHPE, I urge you to distribute this letter and the State of SHPE newsletter to anyone willing to listen. Many successes are to be celebrated.
