President’s Message – Summer 2022


Dear friends and colleagues:


Can you believe we are already almost halfway through 2022? Children are out of school. Pools are open. Gardens are growing. Soon we will be celebrating July 4th!

We have a lot of exciting things happening in AAHAM, both nationally and statewide. We have events that are coming up and I would love to see you there in person!

While I’m writing this, we have the following dates planned:

6/15/22-Washington Nationals Ballpark

6/21-6/22/22-Legislative Day

9/14- The Virginia Fall event will be held in Fredericksburg at the Fick Center (please note it’s on Wednesday this year)

10/12-10/14/22- ANI is in Baltimore

Finally, our Winter conference is in Williamsburg at Kingsmill from 11/30-12/2


Being a part of the national AAHAM Board is so rewarding. Our membership numbers have increased and there are a lot of changes that continue with certification to make it easier for you to stay certified. Joining at the National level will help you with education and maintaining your certification.

A survey will be coming out in the next couple of months. Please take the time to complete it so that we know how we can best meet your needs.


Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me directly if you have any questions or ideas on how to improve the experience or if you would be interested in serving on a committee.


I love this quote by Condoleezza Rice. YOU can do great things!


"The essence of America—that which really unites us—is not ethnicity, or nationality or religion—it is an idea—and what an idea it is: That you can come from humble circumstances and do great things.” Condoleezza Rice
