From Your President

Mary Jo Dolasinski, President, Central Federation

It is a pleasure to be back on the ICHRIE board for this upcoming year. It’s an interesting time within the ICHRIE organization and I feel fortunate to be serving in both the Central Federation President and as Chair of the 75th Anniversary Planning Committee capacities.

As the Central Federation President, I am sad to announce that we have had to cancel our fall conference that was to be held at South Dakota State in September. I want to thank Dr. Park and his team for all of their work to plan the conference and everything they did to try and make the conference possible.

On another note, I am looking forward to working with such a great Central Federation board over the upcoming year to build on this past year’s successes (thanks to Chris Woodruff for being such a great president for our federation). Our focus will continue to be in building our membership and providing value for our members.

As Chair of the 75th Anniversary Planning Committee, I am beyond excited! We have an amazing committee dedicated to planning the entire year!  Over the upcoming months, we will begin sharing some of the things we have planned! We are also grateful to be working Kimberly Severt and the conference committee on the planning and execution of what we know will be an outstanding event.

If you are interested in being on any one of our 12 committees or have any thoughts on things you would like to see throughout the year or at the conference, please don’t hesitate to email me at

Looking forward to seeing you all in Washington, DC next summer!
