…I would like to thank everyone for their continued support…! This [past] year brought us many changes and challenges . . . some good, others not so much…but nonetheless, eventful. I am excited about the upcoming new positive energy on the board… and look forward to continuing our mission as we share ideas and work on ‘growing’ our organizations and helping each other in the coming year. COSA is like a family, growing bigger and stronger day by day. In this coming year, COSA’s board will continue to open its arms to welcome new members to join the family and nurture long time members along the way. I encourage everyone to take an active role in the coming year, with cutbacks in many organizations the continued support we offer each other is priceless.
