From the Director

Here we go! Thanks ResCo for your “Meet the ResCo” emails.  I am now wondering about a pizza stone as per Priyanka’s email…..

Glad to catch up with so many of you for half yearly meetings.  Please let Tia know if you have not met with either Dr. Hargett or myself so we can check in.

Recruitment remains in full swing – hard to believe we only have a few weeks left!

SARs, remember it is time to sign up for boards (abim.org)

JARs, if you haven’t signed up for Step 3 yet … NOW is the time so that you have a date and scores before next year’s contracts are sent out.
