Please vote for me, Charlene M. Morris, to be the Society for Physician Assistants in Pediatrics President in 2013-14. For over 8 years, I have worked to augment SPAP’s advancement in the world of AAPA constituent organizations and Pediatrics. Initially, I worked on CME planning and implementation, also securing grants and liaison status with AFPPA for SPAP’s first two collaborative conferences. Past SPAP president Daniel Wood awarded me the SPAP presidential award in May of 2007 for these efforts. Since then, I served as SPAP treasurer, located our current manager, Monique Mohr, secured multiple grants and supporters benefiting SPAP, and initiated the Stephen Cornell Student Scholarship, a memorial to Advance for PA’s editor. I also planned SPAP’s 1st conference in Baltimore, Maryland—which was lauded by both PAs and our NP colleagues.
Working with the other fine leaders of SPAP, I genuinely hope to increase the growth and development SPAP has already experienced and also:
• Increase the value of SPAP membership for both fellow and student members with educational and social opportunities
• Develop and promote continuity and trust within our constituent organization
• Expand the SPAP conference in future years to include even more vital sessions and workshops that will benefit those working in all aspects of Pediatric Medicine
• Resume PediPoints—a crucial quarterly newsletter of hot topics in the world of pediatric medicine
• Further encourage and augment leadership involvement for and with interested SPAP members
• Maintain and build upon SPAP’s alliance with the AAPA and the American Academy of Pediatrics.
Please vote for me, Charlene Morris, for SPAP President. Work with SPAP as new horizons are expanded with renewed strength and enthusiasm! Feel free to text, call or e-mail me with any recommendations, questions and concerns.
