Dear members and friends of the PCBA,
Happy New Year!
I'm thrilled to be joining you today, January 1, as your new president of PCBA. I shared with you how privileged I am to be participating in this role. Your strengths and cultural generosities give me even more enthusiasm for what lies ahead at the PCBA. And, more broadly, for the position of supporting the schools and the community.
When I met with the members in the past, I reminded them that one of the qualities that distinguish the PCBA is our diversity. The many differences among us are one of the greatest assets, as we can learn so much from each other.
I count you, our family members, as an essential piece of our collegial community. No matter your field or your PCBA experience, you provide a valuable perspective into our organization's past and future. You have the unique opportunity who walk the same path as our board of directors to contribute to our collective mission. We welcome your thoughts and presence at our community events, and the impact you can have on our community is enormous. I appreciate you devoting your time, energy, and resources to helping our directors of the future as they navigate their goals to achieve.
Constructive criticism is particularly important to me: It is so extraordinary that we enable directors to join you in conversations about our future growth. We learn as much from each other, especially when we engage in a dialogue that puts connection and trust at the forefront. What I have learned in my past years as a volunteer is that this position involves a good deal of active listening and learning; please know that I am here to listen to you.
I look forward to building a relationship and connecting with you in the years to come.
I relish being part of our collective future, and most importantly, I'm inspired as I anticipate working with all of you to improve lives.
