The warming temps, sounds of children playing outside, and my itch to swing golf clubs tells me summer has arrived! I hope the season holds exciting vacation plans and even some rest and relaxation for all of you!
The Board of Directors recently met at their spring meeting in Destin, Florida. In addition to conducting the normal business of the association, I am very pleased to report that we are making progress on the selection of a new Management Course for the education program. I would personally like to thank the Education Committee for their ongoing work to help make this happen. We plan to share more details with you at this year’s Annual Education Conference.
Speaking of the Conference… The Annual Conference Team also met in Destin for a very productive session in which many of the final details for the conference were ironed out. Registration is now open and we hope that you have made plans to join us for what will be a fantastic educational and networking opportunity. The Product Committees have worked hard to put together a program that will offer fresh and challenging material with some of the content targeted at professional development and emerging technology. The JW Marriott Marco Island is an incredible property with a new conference center that will be sure to delight! Make your reservations early before the room block fills up.
Finally, I would like to thank all of you for your membership and support of the ICA. It is a wonderful organization that has helped me grow both personally and professionally. Whether it be attendance at the conference, participation on a conference call or taking exams through the education program I hope you will be sure to take advantage of all it has to offer!
Thank you for the opportunity to serve as your President, and until Marco Island… Be well!
