The Association has been carving out an increasingly important and influential role and, as a board member for the past two years, I have really come to appreciate the wide scope of work IBIA undertakes to serve and represent the industry. IBIA strives to work with all sides of the industry to find pragmatic, workable solutions to the challenges we face, and to educate and communicate effectively. These are ideals that I share, and I am looking forward to getting stuck in.”
