Latosha considers herself an equity-minded administrator and values building coalitions across differences. Latosha says that her service and leadership is guided by this quote from Aboriginal Activist, Dr. Lilla Watson: “If you have come to help me, you are wasting your time, but if you have come because your liberation is tied up with mine, then let us work together.”
Latosha will be transitioning into the Parliamentarian role in the coming weeks and will meet with the Board at this year's Annual Conference.
A special thank you to Brian Glick, outgoing Parliamentarian, for all his hard work & commitment to ASCA!
