President's Message (May 2011 Newsletter)

Sun, May 01, 2011 9:35 AM | Anonymous member (Administrator)
Several inquiries that we would like to respond to have been forwarded to DSAIA since our 2012 conference announcement.  Our board voted to purposefully align our conference dates with the NDSS Buddy Walk on Washington to be responsive to our members and to alleviate travel or financial strains on affiliates, thereby allowing them to have representatives at both important events. Questions have been forwarded which indicate a misconception that DSAIA is associated with or endorses one walk brand over another. Nothing could be further from the truth. DSAIA has no vote or voice in our member's board rooms and we support our members regardless of what brand they choose to utilize for their walks.

is committed to helping affiliates maximize their operational capacity through cutting edge programs, best practices in non-profit management and effective fundraising initiatives. We seek to provide our members with tools and resources to grow their walks and make them more effective in promoting awareness while increasing dollars raised. Our hope is that this statement will alleviate any confusion or misconceptions moving forward. Feel free to contact DSAIA should you have any questions.

I want to tell you what WONDERFUL time I had at the conference. I learned so much and came away with lots of ideas for our organization. -Barb Waddle, The Upside of Downs of Northeast Ohio
