“I Have Already Found So Much Information That I Can Use”

“I have been receiving your newsletters for quite some time now and have thoroughly enjoyed reading them. I had a membership with another organization for admins, but did not really get much from the website to enhance my knowledge or skills. I am so glad that I reviewed your membership page before thinking of renewing that membership. I have already found so much information that I can use, and I’ve only checked out two tabs! Thank you for gathering and putting this information out there. I wish I had had the sense to utilize it years ago!” —Elizabeth H., administrative assistant to the dean, Fort Worth, Texas
