Changing of the Guard

I sending out a big thanks to Kelly Lorraine who served as the co-rep for the past 2+ years! I am sure everyone appreciated her can-do spirit, energy and leadership. 

Stepping in as the new co-rep is JAN DOYLE. I am so excited to have the opportunity to work with her!

We also have a couple of new volunteers for the CT region.Mary Lachman has volunteered to update the blog. When you have news to share with the SAQA-CT community email it to her at

Rosalind Spann has volunteered to coordinate the Fall 2018 Retreat. She will be sharing more information soon. If you would like to help Roz please email her at

Again, wishing a fond farewell to Kelly for her service as rep and thank you to Jan, Mary and Roz for taking on these new roles for SAQA-CT!
