Farewell Address by Outgoing President Christy DiBartolo, AIA
Dear Members and Friends,
I am sitting here closing out 2022 as the AIANS President. It was a really great year with fantastic colleagues, and intriguing and unique programming. Here’s a quick recap:
While all this has transpired, we continue to bulk up Sponsorship, thanks to Ben Horten and Andrew Thompson. Ron Weston has made certain that our Continuing Education efforts are in check. We have also balanced our budget, kept our accreditation, by-laws, and policies up to date. With our new Component Director Robert Epstein, we are ensuring that everything is up and running smoothly, while we bid Julie Pagnotta a fond farewell.
Special thanks to the Board of Trustees for all your hard work this year. It’s bittersweet to become the Past President. My husband and kids are thrilled to have me back, but the Board of Trustees, Members, and I have some fond memories of 2022, which has been a pivotal year on so many levels. I’m hoping we keep the energy going in 2023 and for years to come.
Christy DiBartolo, AIA
2022 AIANS President
