Message from our President:

WOW!! What a phenomenal conference we had in May!! I trust fun was had by all and that you all learned something. I know I did. Even after almost 25 years in office, I ALWAYS take away valuable information from these conferences. This year, we had an excellent education program. We also highlighted our unbelievable scholarship winners. Every year I am in awe of the young people we have apply for and who receive our scholarships. It gives me hope for the future. Speaking of scholarships,  don’t forget that we hope to award scholarships to students seeking success in trade/technical/vocational schools in the future.

We had such a fun time at the Luau!! AND we raised lots of money for the scholarship program. I want to thank all the great sports who participated in our games that evening. It was so much fun! The laughter and fellowship of that night will be felt for a good long time. I hope you take those opportunities to rekindle old friendships and make new ones. We are each other’s biggest source for advice and information. It is invaluable. I encourage all of you to participate in your zone meetings and all of these conferences. We are all in this together. Lean on each other.

We had an amazing turnout of vendors and even had to expand the room a couple of times! That is fantastic!! We so appreciate all of you, seasoned and new. The information and products you bring to our masses make all our jobs more manageable. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

An equally heartfelt Thank You goes out to our IACO staff. Tamiko and Autumn are this president’s right and left hands. I have a vision and they make it happen. And, of course, Nancy is there to count the money. Many thanks for all that they all do for the IACO Board and for you all as affiliates.

Please remember we will be having a HUGE Retirement Party in November at Fall Conference. I am so excited to celebrate everyone! Plan now to attend. See you all in Normal in November!

- Bobbi Rairden, IACO President.
