I want to take this opportunity to wish everyone a Happy New Year. We have an exciting year ahead of us and are pleased to have each one of you participating in it.  As we enter 2018 it is always a good time to take a look at where we have come from in the past year – and look ahead to the new one. We have experienced some major accomplishments in the past year in a number of areas, including:

  • Rollout of the First Time Online WPTW course
  • International recognition and trial adoption of the WPTW System
  • Initiation of the development of a digital system

And now, as we propel forward in the New Year, aware that there are always new challenges that lie ahead of us, we remain confident in the knowledge that the Association and Members are willing to meet these challenges head on. It is reassuring to know that we are all willing to pull together and make the changes necessary to ensure our continued success. And in keeping with that, I am pleased to announce the following changes that are being put in place—changes, we believe, that will position us strongly in the upcoming year:

  • Increased communication strategies
  • Broader stakeholder development strategies
  • Development and rollout of a digital system

Again, welcome back everyone! We thank you for your continued enthusiasm and positive efforts as we look forward to another successful year.
