Dear CAHN Members,
Welcome to 2021! I
think… let’s not jinx it.
As your new CAHN
president, I am both honored and humbled to take on this new role in serving
such an outstanding organization. I want to take a moment though and thank our
outgoing president Arvinder Ginda for his dedicated service to CAHN. His
leadership over these last 4 years has been unsullied and an inspiration for us
all. He faced many challenges during his tenure, but he always faced them head
on and courageously. Now to the business at hand.
Although 2020 hit
us with an abundance of unexpected and unprecedented trials and tribulations,
we all managed somehow to navigate our way through. This meant being
resourceful and adapting to change, especially as it related to our in-person
training. As a Board, we had to make the
tough decision to cancel our Annual Training Conference. But in the spirit of ingenuity, we decided to
host a few smaller, virtual de-briefs that were generally well received. We are
still committed to bringing forward the most cutting edge, interesting and
meaningful training we can find as you will see later this year.
I believe that
2021 will present its own set of unique challenges, but we will continue to be
the resilient human beings we all are! My hope is that we can indeed meet once
again for in-person trainings in the very near future. I pray for the safety and well-being of our
members as we face the unknown future. But with this uncertainty comes a great
opportunity for growth and change. As said by the great philosopher Socrates,
“The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old,
but on building the new.” Let us continue to build!
