    Thank You IRgA Staff

    I've returned from the IRgA show in Orlando and I've almost recovered. Somebody was joking that you have to get in shape for the show every year. I thought the show was a success. There were a lot of people that worked very hard to pull it off. I have to give credit to Steve Bova, IRgA Executive Director, and his dedicated staff. I have had the pleasure of working with this team over the last year as I served on the board. They take their role, the success of the association, and the success of the industry very seriously. They have worked very hard over the last several years to turn the trends surrounding IRgA from a “viscous cycle” to a “virtuous cycle”. They have dealt with many adverse situations. They have convinced the board of directors to make difficult decisions that were not popular, but were ultimately the right decisions. They have channeled the energy of the board and the membership to focus on high priority activities that bring value to its members rather than supporting “sacred cows”. They have helped to increase our focus on continual education and developing a level of professionalism both in the association and within the industry. In this fast changing business climate, the industry and the association need this type of guidance and focus. For those who attended the keynote presentations and the educational sessions you know what I’m talking about. For those who did not attend the convention, or take the time to get the full experience, I believe you missed out on a great opportunity to learn. I encourage you to take the time next year.

    Thank you IRgA Staff!
