State of the chapter – May 2015

It’s been a year of change for IABC Los Angeles. Following our “lite-mode” plan we set out last summer, we have shifted from in-person events to online webinars to make better use of our resources. We’ve been happy to see many of you joining our webinars, and look forward to seeing the rest of you on our upcoming sessions (listed below).

It’s also the time of year where we elect the new Board of Directors for the chapter’s 2015-16 fiscal year. I’ve listed our current proposed slate of board members below, along with open positions. If you’re interested in a great professional development opportunity with a great team, please consider running for a seat on the board. Simply send an email to our President-Elect Nick Duggan at communications-vp@iabcla.com letting us know which position(s) you’re interested in, and he will explain the nomination process.

It’s been an honor to serve as your chapter President for the past year, and I look forward to remaining involved on the board and in the chapter in the year to come. Thank you for your continued support of IABC Los Angeles!

Best regards,
Mike
