From the Editor

Hello there,

Spring is making its first timid appearance here in New England and many of us are grateful! Although I have spent the last week enjoying books by the fireplace and appreciating the light snowfall in the evening, I am ready for some warm weather, flowering gardens, and outdoor celebrations!

This month our contributors take an internal look at support, empathy, and innovation. They highlight how these factors become an important aspect in developing a strong relationship with our communities and our clients. I hope you find valuable knowledge and insight in these articles.

Thank you for reading! Is there something you’d like to see in the VOICE? A particular subject you’d like us to address? Please don’t hesitate to contact us at with comments, questions, event notices, or article contributions. We are always looking for new perspectives and look forward to hearing from you.
