SAVIR Member Update
Dear SAVIR Members,
I am honored and excited to take over as SAVIR President. The organization has been growing the past few years and I look forward to the challenge of maintaining that momentum. The SAVIR Board of Directors met for its annual meeting this month in Philadelphia, a few reoccurring themes arose from our discussion. I have identified three as important focus areas for the upcoming year:
Also at our meeting this month came several changes in our organizational leadership. We warmly welcome Fred Rivera who joins the Board of Directors. Cori Peek-Asa stepped down as President after a very successful and productive year. She has been a dedicated leader for us over this past year that is reflected in SAVIR's many accomplishments during her presidency. As the Immediate Past President, she will continue her work this coming year on the Board of Directors and its Executive Committee. We also acknowledged and expressed out gratitude for two members leaving the board after several years of dedicated service. Sue Gallagher finished her Board term but will continue to Co-Chair the SAVIR Advocacy and Public Policy Committee. Charlie Branas who has provided exceptional commitment to our organization through his time on the Board, as President-elect, President, and Immediate Past President is rotating off the Board but will continue to be involved in the organization.
SAVIR is co hosting with STIPDA and our center member the University of Iowa Injury Prevention Research Center a series of webinars with the next ones schedule for December 16 and January 26. An announcement flyer of these sessions is available on our website SAVIR Webinars http://www.savirweb.org/assets/240_webinarseriesoninjuryeval.pdf
