Happy new year everyone. My name is Sarah Ackerly and I am your 2019-2020 New York State President and Vice President of Alumni and Associates. One of my favorite parts of state meeting every year is the banquet. I love to see everyone get dressed up and spend the night with great friends. I love all the awards given to everyone who is so deserving. I also love to recognize the hard work of the current officers and the elects. I can’t wait to see everyone dressed up this year and enjoying the banquet. I also love the dance that follows, a time for everyone to laugh and let loose. I can’t wait to dance the night away with everyone at the dance this year. I hope to see everyone at state meeting April 1st and 2nd.
