LDA Today - March/April 2016

As I reflect on the 53rd Annual International Conference recently held in Orlando, Florida, I’m reminded of the positive vibes and the spirit of togetherness that manifested itself throughout the proceedings. Several of this issue’s articles will provide you with an overview of the conference: the President’s Report; the election of officers and directors; conference highlights; teacher scholarship recipients; the State Presidents’ Representative report in Across the States; conference sponsors; and the 2016 Award winners.

Also in this issue you’ll find Summer Challenges and Solutions for our younger set; a brief report on LDA’s concern for the lead exposure situation in Flint, Michigan; a Call for Proposals for the 2017 Conference; and New Approach to Preventing Use of Toxic Chemicals. This latter article will provide the reader with information on regrettable substitutions, “halogenated” flame retardants, and phthalates used as food additives.

If you have a suggestion for an article or a topic, please feel free to write us at info@ldaamerica.org. Our next issue will have an end-of-school theme and summer activities.
