SABM Officers and


Letter from the President

Dr. Nabil Hassan

Dear Members and Affiliates,

It is with much excitement and energy that we begin yet another year and thus, I wish to start right out of the gate with my resounding thanks to each of you. You are the core and the heart of this organization.

The Newsletter staff have welcomed you, highlighting the extensive and innovative material to anticipate in this Winter 2017 release.  Review each section and enjoy.

On my behalf, I wish to focus on two chief topics as SABM enters 2017:

We embark on a newly refreshed strategic plan for our professional society which hones our skills and will help us become even more effective on both the national and international stages.  Thank you to all who took part in this great effort to realign and revitalize our mission.

We also welcome Ms. Nicole Singleton and her staff at The Adept Group as our new management company.  They have been fabulous with the transition and are already working diligently and with such commitment  getting to know us and to begin sharing in our journey.   We thank them for these efforts and look forward to an excellent relationship.

Having these two elements, from an organizational perspective, can only serve to launch SABM to the next level.  A Happy New Year to all.  I, personally, look forward to working with, meeting and greeting so many of you during 2017.

And, of course, mark your calendar for the Annual Meeting in Portland where we will once again engage in learning and celebration of our society.


Dr. Nabil Hassan
