Fellow IAAO Members,

I am honored to have served on the Executive Board at such a pivotal time in our organization. The current board has been busy positioning the organization for the next level. Vision 2020 continues to be the catalyst to take IAAO to the next level. As chairman of Vision 2020 Special Committee, I had the unique opportunity to work with some of the brightest minds in the industry and craft a plan that is our roadmap to success. I am excited for the opportunity to embrace the vision by ENLISTING our tenured members to gain valuable institutional knowledge as a foundation to ENGAGE our emerging leaders with their fresh and out-of-the-box ideas as a mechanism to EMPOWER the organization to be the global leader in assessment administration and education.

“You may have the greatest bunch of individual stars in the world, but if they don’t play together, the club won't be worth a dime” - Babe Ruth

Your voice in the future of our organization is your vote. I would appreciate the opportunity to serve as your voice on the board and humbly seek your vote. For more information please visit Thank you.
