Leadership Message - September 2020

Dear members,

It is hard to believe September is here already! I hope this letter finds you all safe and healthy. It has been a challenging year for many, but remember AIA is here for you. As we all know Aromatherapy is wonderful for stress relief so reach out for your essential oils for support. 

I have some exciting news to share. In the last issue of Beginnings (the magazine of the American Holistic Nurses Association), several of our esteemed members were published including Marni Reven, Laraine Pounds, Jan Tomaino, and Valerie Cooksley (#aromaticsinaction)! You can check it out at How have you helped the community by using your expertise? Let us know!

On October 15, we will have a special meeting to meet the candidates in our upcoming election. This is a wonderful opportunity to learn about those who have stepped up to run in the election and why it is important to them to do so. Your input, including questions of the candidates and especially your VOTES, are very welcome and are vital to our organization. Immediately following our ‘Meet the Candidates’ presentation (about 1 hour), we will have our Annual Members Meeting. This meeting will give you an insight into what AIA and its committees have been doing all year to provide you with resources and opportunities to learn. You will also discover what projects are coming up for the committees. You may find a project that appeals to you and want to join in. You will have an opportunity to share your thoughts with the AIA Board and our members for the future. Immediately after the Annual Members Meeting (about 45 minutes), the AIA Board will have its Annual Board Meeting (less than 30 minutes). This is an open board meeting and members are welcome if they would like to stay on. Please make it a point to join us for these important meetings and to play an active role in AIA.
