News & Updates

Important Updates from SDAD President


This is Tanya, President of SDAD. I have three important updates to share with you.

First, our Vice President, Ashley Cain, has resigned effective July 21st. I want to thank her for her support and contributions to SDAD. If any of you are interested in taking her position, please let me know. (Ashley Cain is moving to Ohio) 

Second, I have accepted a job position in St. Paul. Although I will be working in St. Paul, I will continue to reside in Sioux Falls and will remain as President. We will schedule a meeting sometime in September, with more details to follow.

Lastly, SDAD is downsizing our storage at the Simpson building. Thanks to Scott Miller - We have already sorted everything, and a storage sale is set for June 22nd. Cash is preferred, as there is no ATM available at the Simpson building, so please come prepared. The proceeds will support SDAD. 

Thank you!
