Making a difference has always been about sharing my time and talents with the causes that mean the most to me. Over the years, I have lent a hand to community efforts: everything from serving as a local Alderman to President of the Board of Directors for the Boys and Girls Club. In recent years, I have honed my efforts into helping with IAAO committees. It would be an honor to receive a vote from you to serve as your Associate Member on the Board of Directors. I am proud to be an IAAO member alongside such accomplished assessment professionals.
