PRESIDENT’S

Message

What an honor to be addressing the membership of the Pacific Northwest Division of the IAI as your incoming President. I would like to take a moment to thank you for providing me this opportunity to serve. Working alongside your 2023-2024 Board of Directors, I am committed to providing you with tangible resources to further our collective goal of professional growth through training, and research.

Over the next year, the Board plans to continue growing your membership benefits. In 2021 we offered our first FREE training webinars exclusively to our members and will continue to build on this in the coming months. When these opportunities are scheduled, you will be notified via group mailings from our talented Publication Committee, and they will be posted in the Training area of our beautifully redesigned website.
