Farewell Message from the President

Awesome Colleagues and Friends,  

Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to serve as your president for the past two years.   I am grateful to have worked alongside a Board whose love and respect for the profession matched my own.   Collectively we have achieved great things in our two years together, and as I roll off the Board, I leave with gratitude for the lessons learned, the privilege of serving, and the lifelong relationships formed with colleagues.   

If I had one word to describe this Board – Skye Wright, Valarie Flora, Dana Hayden and Judy Ammons –  it would be dedicated.   Well, I need to use four words, because “dedicated” isn’t enough.   HARD WORKING AND DEDICATED is how I would describe these Board members.  They put in the hours it took to get things done.    Thank you, Awesome Ladies, for doing whatever it takes to get it done, and for always being ready to tackle the next project!   We were a great team.  

And last, but not least, thank you to every reporter who has supported ACRA and has made our organization what it is today!   These past two years ACRA has grown exponentially, and we are grateful for your strong support.    I look forward to getting to know our new members and reconnecting with our continued members at future conferences. ACRA would not be what it is today without you!  

As I say ‘so long’ as president, and hand over the baton to the new president, Skye Wright, and the Board, I am excited to know that ACRA has strong leaders who are enthusiastic, strive to always be better, and are ready to roll up their sleeves to get the work done to take ACRA to new levels!    
All my best,
Tricia Pfeifer
President 2018-2020
