December 2014


Dear SCCASP Members,


I hope this message finds you all well and having enjoyed the Thanksgiving holiday with your family and friends. The holidays are a time when we stop to give thanks for the resources and blessings we all have. I am especially thankful for the opportunity to serve as your President this year.

On the topic of resources, I wanted to mention again that SCCASP has Board positions available including President Elect. Please consider giving your time and enthusiasm for the profession to SCCASP. Also, SCCASP is pleased to announce that the open position for webmaster has been filled by Janine Bauman. Janine, and the other board members, bring much enthusiasm to their positions. You should see updates, changes, and improvements to the functionality of SCCASPs web page very soon.

Additionally, with regard to resources, I want to inform you that this issue of the SCCASP News will be the last one to be distributed in both paper and electronic form. Creating a paper newsletter uses both tree/paper resources as well as human ones. Thank you in advance for your understanding as we move over to an entirely electronic, newsletter format (The trees thank you). We hope to use the human resources we have to focus on bringing you quality programming and an electronic newsletter.

I hope to see many of you at the Winter Social on December 9th and at workshops coming in March and April. I’ll write to you soon about those opportunities. In the mean time, I want to wish you a wonderful holiday season. . .may the holidays and New Year bring you blessings and resources a plenty!


Sincerely Yours,



Rita Rodriguez, Ph.D., NCSP, LEP
