Miller I love the tireless efforts of this group and I gained so much confidence and perspective going through this program myself in 2009. I now am spearheading a task force for my State Association to launch a leadership academy to help cultivate new leaders to grow from local involvement, to state involvement onto national involvement. I love this part of volunteerism to our profession! jessicahickok Way to go Paula! Can’t wait to hear how it develops for your state association. Keep us posted. Kit Fitzgerald Excited for my interview this week!! Thank you! Jessica Hickok Kit – looking forward to meeting you! Thanks for applying to the academy.
