WE'RE BACK............Well I know we officially never left but after having such a successful convention, I feel like this is the most appropriate way to kick off this month's newsletter. On behalf of the entire board I want to thank all of you that contributed to and supported our 2021 convention in Minden, NV. We had a great time reconnecting with friends and colleagues.
As I step into my role as Chair of this association, I'm excited at where we have come as a group thus far but looking forward to where we are going in the years to come. In spite of all the challenges we have faced both personally and professionally over the last 18 months, NIIA is still standing and operating stronger than ever.
Over the course of this next twelve months, we are going to be focused on increasing the value proposition to our members and supporters, strengthening our Emerging Leaders and building a lasting and sustainable strategy centered around Diversity & Inclusion. If we capitalize on these areas, I am confident that our association will continue to grow not only in numbers but in value.
I thank you all in advance for your support and look forward to working with you and for you and this great association. Enjoy your summer and stay safe.
