It is with great pleasure that I am seeking re-election to the CUNA Marketing and BD Council Executive Committee. I am truly humbled by the opportunity to volunteer as a council member.

As an Executive Council Member, I have served on many committees. As co-chair on the Member Resource Committee and the Diamond Awards Committee, we have awarded over 900 diamond awards, published many white papers, created amazing roundtables, provided marketing toolkits and raised over $300,000 in sponsorship funds. I am currently your Sponsorship Committee Chairperson and Diamond Awards Committee Co-Chair. I have enjoyed serving you and ensuring our council is the best we can be for you and the other CMBD council members. The programs and products that our council provides truly make a difference in your everyday professional lives. I look forward to continuing to serve our members and being a part of all our great council provides.
