The Board held its annual meeting through webinar on September 11, 2020. We welcomed new President, Cate O'Keefe, new Treasurer, Sean Lucey, new AIFRB-AFS Liaison, Doug Zemeckis, and had productive discussions with new ideas shared by all Board members. We thanked outgoing President, Kim Anthony, for all of her efforts over the last three years. The Board was joined by several active and perspective AIFRB members for open discussions on strategic planning and input about ways we can continue to engage with membership through remote events. We look forward to our next meeting and welcome input from all members.

Becoming a District Director is easy, carries a low time commitment, and provides an opportunity to broaden your network within your geographic area and nationally. District Directors are also Board members that participate in AIFRB governance, event planning and strategic decision-making.
