Hello IRSA Members!
This time of year is always an exciting one for me and I am confident it is the same for you as well. From the anticipation of students returning to campus to the wonderment on the faces of people new to our campuses, there is a higher level of energy on campus that sustains me during these hectic first weeks. I hope and trust that same energy is sustaining all of you as well.
I have enjoyed my first year serving as the IRSA President and have learned more than I could put into a newsletter. One consistent theme that I was aware of prior but now am feeling it firsthand is how outstanding the professionals are in our association. You are outstanding professionals because first and foremost you are outstanding people. You are people who care and give to others without thought of return. You are people who work tirelessly to provide meaningful programs/services to your campuses. Your energy gives energy to those around you.
I am fortunate to have had the opportunity to serve you this past year and am looking forward to this final year in my tenure as President. The newsletter is an accumulation of several of the happenings around our great association. Please feel free to contact me with any questions, comments, or concerns and I will look forward to seeing all of you at Rose-Hulman in October!
