Welcome All!

2015 – 2016 GOALS
I have some lofty goals that I am proposing for the 2015 – 2016 year. They are as follows:
1. Increase subdivision membership by 10%.
2. Strengthen and improve our Transition Voice Newsletter
3. Increase professional development opportunities for VADCDT members.
4. Strengthen the internal structure of the Board’s operations.
5. Strengthen the website

Please welcome the 2015 – 2016 Board of Directors (Drum roll…please!):
