President’s Message

Welcome back for the 2021-2022 PASH year! I’m honored to have been selected as PASH President for one more year and am looking forward to what this year has in store for us.  I would like to extend a huge thank you to the Board Members, Committee Chairs and all of the individuals that volunteer their time to PASH. Without the dedication and support of volunteers, we couldn’t exist. Are you new to the group or interested in being more involved? I encourage you to reach out to me or one of the other PASH leaders to find out how you can participate.

There is a lot to look forward to this year.  We will be kicking off the PASH year in September at the Whitehall Houston while abiding by the latest CDC guidance.  Each of the committees will be coordinating engaging speakers and lively discussion topics to keep us up to date on the latest developments in the industry.  One of the momentous events this year will be the 60th (plus 1) Anniversary COPAS meeting.  PASH will be hosting the Spring 2022 COPAS meeting at the San Luis Resort in Galveston and it is going to be a great week.  Education Day will be held in May featuring a full day of topics from expert presenters.

Knowledge sharing and building lasting relationships are two things that help us grow as individuals and also two of the greatest benefits of being a PASH member. Let’s continue to cultivate our relationships and share our experiences with others. Invite your colleagues to join you for a meeting to share what our society has to offer and encourage them to become a member. Everyone has something great to contribute.

As always, if you have any questions, please reach out to me or any of your fellow PASH members. We’re here to work together towards success!

Wishing you the best,

Karla Zawodny
PASH President
2020-2021, 2021-2022
