Hello my AFMA friends!! I just wanted to take a few minutes to say what an honor and a privilege it has been to serve on the AFMA Board of Directors for the past 5 years. I am grateful for the opportunities, the growth, the support and most of all, the friendships that I have developed through this great work. I am still surprised that Star and Eileen has the faith in me to shepherd me as a board member, and ultimately as the president, I appreciate their vote of confidence and their unwavering support. I hope I didn’t let them down.
As a leader in AFMA, my greatest joy and source of pride is in the emerging leaders that I had the privilege to shepherd and mentor. Bobbi, Melissa, and Tina, I hope my example, my successes and my failures have served as a lesson for you and have helped you in your professional development. I am so very proud of each of you and can’t wait to see where you take this organization next. While it is time for me to leave and I am sad, I know that I have left our membership in great hands. For all of the board members, current and future, I challenge you to keep growing, keep reaching and to stay well.
My hope is best summarized in a quote shared this morning in a presentation, “Leadership is about making others better as a result of your presence and making sure that impact lasts in your absence.” Sheryl Sandburg, Facebook COO. Love you all; be well!
