Manager, Membership, TASH
I am a member of the TASH staff. Mostly I'm going to be occupied running the conference. When I get to attend conference sessions, it will primarily be pertaining to my staff work on membership and chapters. Otherwise I will be staffing the TASH table. If you need help with anything, just ask and I will do what I can. If you want to know about membership or chapters, come by the table (next to registration) and ask.
