Dear Friends,

The Susan Shapiro Fund logoAs many of you may know this year I chaired my 5th and final Chapter conference.  My term as Chapter Board member is ending. But before my term is officially over I wanted to share one last bit of Chapter business, something very near and dear to my heart, The Susan R Shapiro Leadership Award

In 2015 I established the fund, in memory of my dear colleague and friend who was taken from us much too soon by ovarian cancer. Susan was an active member of ALCA and had volunteered for years holding both Chapter and National positions. She also attended and enjoyed many annual national conferences.  It was in her memory and her spirit that I established this award, a national conference registration bestowed annually upon a chapter member who demonstrates outstanding professionalism and leadership potential within ALCA. This year was particularly meaningful to me as the Chapter Board established a logo to go along with the award.  A recognition and assurance that the Susan R Shapiro Award will continue.

I hope you will consider making a donation this year.  Supporting our professional association is one of the best ways to support your own success.  Please consider this an investment in our future. To those of of you that have donated thank you and please consider donating again. And, to those of you who will, thank you it is one of the best investments you can make in and as an Aging Life Care Manager.

Donation checks can be made out to: Aging Life Care Association, note on the memo line: “Susan Shapiro Fund- New England Chapter”.
