Happy New Year! I am honored and excited to begin my term as CSAP President for the year 2024, standing alongside an exceptional group of leaders dedicated to the advancement of our collective mission. As we embark on this new chapter, I want to express my gratitude to our outgoing President, Valerie Brosius, and the entire executive team for their tireless efforts over the past year.

I am fortunate to be joined by a committed team of leaders: Valerie Brosius (Past President), Marian Lowther (President-Elect), Hillary Cooper (Treasurer), and Katie Bochi (Secretary).

Together, we are ready to continue the legacy of excellence and service that defines the Council of State Speech-Language-Hearing Association Presidents.

In reflecting on the achievements over the past year, I wanted to provide you with a few updates. First, CSAP has hired Lyndsey Zurawski as Executive Director. Lyndsey has previously served as President of FLASHA (Florida Speech-Hearing Association) and President of CSAP. As we begin 2024, I wanted to also alert you to our new website, as well as our new Instagram account. If you haven’t looked over the new website, or given us a follow on Instagram, please take time to do so!

Looking forward to the year ahead, I anticipate engaging in meaningful exchanges of information, fostering collegial discussions, and nurturing a commitment to ongoing learning.

CSAP remains dedicated to providing valuable opportunities for you to learn and grow as leaders. Our commitment is evident through the continuation of roundtable discussions and the hosting of key events, including our Spring/Summer in-person two-day conference in Indianapolis and our one-day Fall Conference in Seattle.

I encourage representatives from each state association to participate in these events, fostering an environment where we can support and guide each other. Your active involvement is crucial in shaping the future of our profession, and I am hopeful that we will witness a strong representation from every state association at our conferences this year.

As we move through 2024, please consider the CSAP Board, myself, or the CSAP office as valuable resources. We welcome your questions, concerns, and suggestions, as they play a vital role in shaping the direction of our organization.

Remember, "Once a CSAPer, Always a CSAPer!" Your dedication and commitment make our community stronger, and I am confident that together, we will achieve great things in the coming year.

Wishing you all a year filled with growth, collaboration, and success!

Warm regards,

Gregory J. Spray, Ph.D., CCC-SLP CSAP President 2024
