The IARFC is getting ready to host the annual board meeting March 7th.
Board Members from all over the US will be here to review agenda topics and make recommendations for the coming year. Those taking part are Les Anderson, Steve Bailey, Nick Royer, Jeff Rattiner, Rosilyn Overton, Jon Rogers, Hank Brock and Isabel Cooper.
On March 6th, the day before the actual Friday meeting, the Board will take part in judging the semi-finalists in the National Plan Competition. Web Conferences will be set up for 6 teams. From these 6, 2-3 finalists will be chosen to present their plans in Las Vegas on May 1.
The Board agenda topics are varied. A focus this year is accreditation. Education Director Jim Lifter will be working with the Board on forming committees (Ethics and Accreditation Board) and other items needed to move the accreditation process forward. Another item for brainstorming is increasing the membership. Reports on the past year will be given by the appropriate staff person.
We will keep members up-to-date on any important association news!
