Note From the President

Welcome to our old and new members to what I hope will be an exciting new year that includes a trip to North Carolina. For those of you who don’t know me, I’m Christina Byrd. I have been an Office Associate at OSU Extension, Franklin County for going on four years. This will be my third year as a member of TERSSA. I joined TERSSA without knowing much about the organization other than it was for support staff. I was simply looking for professional development and relationship building with my counterparts. I’ve found those things in TERSSA and much more. I will say don’t be afraid to jump in and serve on a committee or run for office. I did and have found that more experienced members are here to support me 100% while I grow in my role. That said, I’m new and far from perfect so I welcome ideas on how we can improve. I think COVID has taught us we have to be creative and think outside the box to find ways to stay connected. I look forward to serving you and hopefully seeing in you NC this year and Ohio in 2022. Stay well!
