Thank you for your support of the SBSM


Members are recognized each year at the Bootzin Awards and Recognition Event for their contributions to the SBSM through volunteering with committees, work groups, special projects, and society events.  It is a time to meet others, network, and learn from other BSM experts.

BSM Executive Committee leaders Dr Don Townsend, Dr Donna Arand, and Kathryn Hansen, SBSM Executive Director are pausing for a moment to celebrate the successful event and to cherish the members who were recognized at the event.
