A Personal Message from Jan Nelson, CTSM

Janice Nelson, CTSMIt is with mixed emotions that I announce my retirement in 2019. I am looking forward to a new chapter in my life, but I will miss all of you. Serving as the director of the CTSM program has been a real joy to me. It has been rewarding to mentor and advise you, award CTSM credentials to those who have earned them, and see you reach new heights in your careers. You are an awesome group of individuals - hard working, eager to keep on learning, and willing to pay it forward to help others excel. Don't stop, but keep on keeping on.

This also means that we are looking for someone new to lead the program going forward. The CTSM Executive Director position will be posted soon in the classified section of EXHIBITOR's website.

Thank you for everything and best of luck to you in your future endeavors! - Jan
