I am honored to be able to serve as your new president for the next two years. As you already know, we have a wonderful board
in place and I am very excited and looking forward to working closely with the Board in the coming year.
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the Vinman (aka Vinny Klump) for his service as past president. We appreciate your hard work!
For those of you who don’t know me, I have worked as the manager of Histology, Cytology and Pathology at Bridgeport Hospital for the past five years.
I am already beginning to think about our Spring meeting (date
TBA) but if anyone has any ideas for venues or topics that they would be interested in, please contact me or one of the members of the Board.
It is 2013, so please remember to renew your membership. One of my first goals as your new president is to increase membership.
I also wanted to remind everyone that the National meeting in 2013 is in Providence, RI. As our neighbor, this is a great opportunity to get involved with this meeting as a volunteer, attendee or speaker.
Abstracts for workshops are due on January 11th
and additional information can be found at nsh.org
Also, we have a new Facebook page that I have started that is under construction. Please check it out at www.Facebook.com and “Like us”.
The Paraffin Press is always looking for articles and pictures for the website. Amos can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
I am excited about the coming year, and as I have already mentioned, your input and participation is so important. Please feel free to contact me with ideas, questions or comments.
Best in histology,
Angela McNabola, MS, HT(ASCP)SLS, QIHC
President, Connecticut Society of Histotechnologists
