From Toyin Fasakin, MDAD President
Dear members of the board,
Please accept this letter as notice of my resignation from the office as MDAD president effective this Thursday evening, August 4, 2016. Matters have arisen in my personal and professional life, which requires my commitment and attention.
The decision has not been easy, but I believe it is in the best interests of MDAD. It has been a pleasure working with you and I sincerely want to thank you for the opportunity to serve. I am proud of our work to date including the host of the workshop on how to file a complaint and the recruitment of new members. The association is poised for continued growth and I wish you much success with your new president.
Once again, I thank you for the opportunities you gave me during my short tenure. I sincerely wish you many more success in the future.
