President’s Letter – July 2017
When I hung up my IABC/San Diego President’s hat in 2014, little did I know I’d be back in the role three years later! But, that’s the kind of loyalty and passion for giving back that IABC inspires. Joining the board eight years ago was one of the best decisions I’ve made, both professionally and personally. Through IABC, I’ve stepped outside my day job, taken advantage of opportunities to expand my skill set and developed my leadership abilities. Not to mention I’ve made life-long friends along the way, from all over the world. Read more.
