The annual conference for the Voice and Speech Trainers Association (VASTA) is underway in Orlando, Florida. VASTA honored Paul this year with its Lifetime Distinguished Member award. Thank you to VASTA President Michael Barnes and the entire VASTA board and membership! The conference also served as a great networking opportunity for IDEA’s editors.
Paul was unable to accept the award in person, so his son, PMDS Vice President and IDEA Executive Editor Cameron Meier, accepted for him. (Cameron is pictured on the left, below, with Michael Barnes.) Cameron then introduced Paul, who thanked VASTA in prerecorded video message, which you can watch here.
