From the Interim CEO  
Happy New Year!  What an exciting time for NARHA to look forward. Kay Green
We were sorry to see Carol Nickell leave her CEO position at NARHA but wish her all the best in her new position at The Community Resource Center. I was asked by the NARHA Board of Trustees to step in for the next few months as they search for your new NARHA CEO.
During this period the NARHA offices will continue to operate in the same professional manner to which we have grown accustomed. The staff is always here to serve you and go out of their way to help with all your needs. If you have any comments or concerns always feel free to contact me at Thanks for your support and hard work for the betterment of NARHA.

Nicole PepperThank you NARHA instructors

As I complete the NARHA Instructor Certification process, I would like to thank all of our instructors. It is difficult to understand the determination and devotion required to complete the certification process until one completes the process themselves.
I wish you all the best of luck in the upcoming year and keep up the good work!
Yours truly,

Nicole Pepper
NARHA Communities Coordinator
