and a New Grievance Coordinator Ericka Lear
It is with sadness that I am announcing the resignation of Tony Scro from the Board of Directors of NAMA and also from his position as Grievance Coordinator. It has been his knowledge of policy and guidance that has created a respect for NAMA's grievance procedure. His leaving NAMA will most certainly be missed not only by advocates but by providers and policy makers. We wish him well in all future endeavours.
In his place a Grievance Coordinator we are pleased to announce that Erika Lear, CMA will be taking on the challenge. Ms. Lear began her advocacy as Director of Colorado NAMA where she developed a strong relationship with the state methadone authority during the critical years when the new regulations were being implemented. Upon her moving to Pennsylvania she remained to assist in Colorado advocacy issues while working as part of the Pennsylvania NAMA network. In the past year she was appointed as Director of Pennsylvania NAMA and asked to serve as a Regional Director.
