Lisa Pryse Assumes Role as 2013 IAHSS President

Fellow Members of the IAHSS,

On behalf of the IAHSS Board of Directors and Staff, I would like to sincerely wish each of you a Happy New Year!

2012 was a busy year for our industry and for our organization….much was asked of you and much was accomplished. I would first like to welcome all of the new members to IAHSS. We are pleased to have you as a part of this growing organization.

I would also like to welcome our 2013 volunteers (council members, council leaders and board members). I must also offer my heartfelt thanks to those out-going volunteers as well. Your work and dedication to service is evident in the growth and accomplishments we have experienced.

I feel privileged to have been a member of this organization for almost 25 years. Because of many of you, positive changes have emerged for our industry during that time. I like the quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson:

“Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.” 

Join me in getting excited to not only see but also impact the many changes which lie ahead of us in 2013!

I look forward to serving you!


Lisa Pryse

2013 President, IAHSS Board of Directors
