“If you can’t fly, then run. If you can’t run, then walk. If you can’t walk, then crawl. But by all means, keep moving.” ~Martin Luther King, Jr.
As I reflect on our journey to transformation, I recall those bumps and potholes along the way. I also recall how strong and determined we remained in our movement forward. Staying on course can be a challenge, but if our goal is to be the premier organization that develops leaders, influences careers and connects members, it is so very important that we continue to push forward!
We began many initiatives over the last 24-36 months and now we are beginning to see the fruit of our labor. All while continuing to focus on our mission and vision to you, the members. We remain strong in our determination to provide you with the tools to advance your career and provide you with the business opportunities you need. So where do we go from here? What’s next?
Do we let our environment shape us or do we shape our environment? My sincere hope is that we remain resolute in our journey, continue to develop our digital footprint, and with your support, continue to grow valued-added services. Our next objective should be to aggressively market to our industry as well as outside audiences that IAIP is the association of choice!
It has been my honor and extreme pleasure to serve as your President this last year and I am excited to continue my IAIP journey with you! All In. All Together!
IAIP International President,
