 Message from the new RMA President

Hello Rocky Mountain APPA!!

What an honor it is to be named president of this great region!  I am excited to learn from and share with you as I lead our organization.  As I begin my tenure, I need to thank Lisa Potter, immediate past president.  She has left such a large footprint to follow. Her dedication and professionalism to the association, region, and profession is a true example of what a  great leader is.

Over the last year, as president elect, I was asked, “what do you want to accomplish as president of RMA?”  As I shared, it is what WE accomplish.  In the coming year, I ask that you get involved! As each of you promised to “support and assist officers whenever you were called upon,” I am calling upon you to support and assist. The RMA Board is a resource to all members of the region and continually looks at ways to encourage and involve members. In order to be successful, our members need to be and feel a part of the organization they belong to.  As Dale Carnegie has stated, “People support a world they help create.”
