The IICA in last 6 years has been successful in many ways! We built upon the stunning successes of the past several years and the commitment of members to participate in working the activities.
I would certainly highlight significant accomplishments of our committee:
The Committee Process: The goal was to get every Recycler on at least one of our committees. Although we did not quite reach this goal, I know if this remains a high priority, a strong committee will only get stronger! I thank those of you who embraced the change and worked through the committee process!
Please join me in full support for our better future, and its my responsibility to lead you in the positive direction as this community has enjoyed during the past number of years.
