Happy New Year and New Beginnings to everyone! 2015 was one for the memory books! For LDHA and ADHA 2016 is off to a fast start. Hope everyone is ready to jump in feet first and hit the ground running. Your LDHA Board of Trustees has been working diligently to offer things that you have asked for. Our Annual Session Assembly will be held on March 11, 2016 at the Wyndham Garden Lafayette, LA for one day only this year. With an all day registration, you can receive 8 hours of continuing education credits. It’s sure to be a hit! Hope to see you there.
The ADHA is also going through some changes. Over the next few years, Charter Agreements will be taking place in each state that will affect its members. Our tripartite association will be able to help better serve our state. There is also a membership drive that is happening! The more we stick together, the better we can be!

As my Presidential term comes to an end, I can't express how much I have learned over the past year. I would like to thank the ADHA for being selected to attend Unleashing Your Potential 2015 in Chicago back in November. UYP is a weekend leadership conference that ADHA selects 40 RDHs from around the U.S. to attend. It was an awesome experience! We had lectures on many different things to help you grow as a leader in the ADHA. We got to tour the ADHA office. It was pretty amazing to see all the people that we have working for us. I encourage everyone to apply! Lastly, to the board of trustees, thanks for everything you have done to help this Association grow as a whole. Your unity and willingness to help is greatly appreciated. All your time and effort did not go unnoticed. To the members, thanks for supporting such a great organization. Without you, Dental Hygienists would not have as great of a say in our profession. There is strength in numbers and I plan on working to increase our numbers as your past president!
Thanks for a great year.
Shandi Landry, RDH, BS – President, LDHA
