Director Spotlight By your estimation, how much time do you spend working on IDA Board Member responsibilities? Never in my wildest day did I think being part of the Board of Directors would be as challenging as it is! I currently spend 20 to 40 hours a week dealing with IDA issues. Some may think this is a lot of time and I agree, but an association is only as good as the commitment of its Board. What Committees do you serve? During the past three years, I have served on four different committees and various other sub committees. This includes three years with the Member Services Committee (with one year as co-chair and chair of the Garage Door Paperless subcommittee), three years with the Membership and Affiliates Committee (assisting in the development and implementation of a 1-3-5 year recruitment plan), and two years with the Communication Committee (with an assignment to a DASMA subcommittee for 2018). Six months ago, I was recruited as the chair of the IDAExpo committee - a position of which I now hold. What are your goals as a board member? Currently I am running for re-election as director for region 3. If I am fortunate enough to be reelected in January, I look forward to representing my region and continue my work as the Expo Chair. In my opinion, this is the most gratifying position on the Board. There is so much to do and the window continues to close to get it done. 1 KSMX WPS-1 D-2-3 Buy the best commercial and residential controls direct from the manufacturer VEE INDUSTRIES, INC.
