As the incoming president of IASA, I am filled with many emotions. As a volunteer at IASA for years, I have seen many presidents serve their terms, and am humbled by their legacy. As an insurance professional for over thirty years, I am honored to be selected to head up the premier education organization in our industry.

My first official duty as the president-elect was to pick a theme for next year’s conference that we would use all year upon returning from Nashville. As I pondered the theme for my year, I thought about what it is that has uniquely allowed me to get to this place—what has informed my life and my career and could best set the context for my presidency.

As I look back at my career, I know that many things have contributed to my achievements and accomplishments. I thought about my education, my intelligence, my people skills, and just dumb luck. But at the end of the day, I believe that what has made the most difference in my effectiveness is my attitude. I am one of those people for whom the glass is always half full; I always see the future as filled with possibilities. And I work to engender that attitude in everyone who works with me.
