Position Statement

After two consecutive terms as the VP of Certification Maintenance, now Continuing Education, I would like to continue serving on the Executive Committee in the role of Secretary. The Secretary’s position is vital to the organization because it allows for transparency of the Executive Committee’s actions and maintains our by-laws. Over the past 2 years, I have filled this role during a few meetings when the elected Secretary was not able to participate. I also previously served as Secretary for other non-profit organizations, including the Palm Beach County Planning Congress.
