My design, quality assurance and project management experience give me the knowledge, understanding and skills needed to complete creative and complex assignments with the desired results on time and within budget. My achievements in the AANR & AANR-East leadership positions listed above demonstrate that ability.

Candidate Statement:

Working with the distinguished organizational consultant I recruited to advise AANR-East on Governance and Strategic Planning issues has given me a comprehensive understanding of the problems that challenge volunteer organizations like AANR & AANR-East as they mature and attempt to achieve more substantial accomplishments.

Knowing what needs to be accomplished is only the first step in creating organizational change. Convincing leaders and members to make the needed changes is often the biggest challenge. If elected again, I will continue to use the leadership skills demonstrated above to help AANR overcome the many complex issues that are limiting its success.
