ASH Officer change, Letter from New President

ASH Membership,

I am writing this letter to all of you to share that our President, William DeSalvo III has informed the BOD of his resignation as President effective immediately due to personal reasons. As a friend, and someone that I consider to be a mentor to each and every one of us, I wish him well.

With that being said, the BOD will be following the by-laws. I have now resumed the position as President of ASH, Antonia and Shashi will remain in their current positions as Secretary and Treasurer. That now leaves the position of Vice President open. We will be accepting names for the next 2 weeks (November 7-18) of anyone that is interested in this position. After the 2 weeks, we will be sending out a ballot to each of you through Survey Monkey email, so that you can cast your vote. If you are interested, please send Antonia Miller ( a short bio of yourself. Once the votes are tallied, we will send out another email with who the new VP will be and also post it on our FB page.

Please, if you have any questions about the position, don’t hesitate to email me at or go to our website and look at the by-laws. It gives a breakdown of duties.

I look forward to this challenge that was brought upon me, and will continue with the goals that the BOD has set.

Melinda A Hamilton HT (ASCP)
