"I was sorry to have missed the 100 year celebration dinner for ICCE. If I had attended it would have been a great opportunity to tell those in attendance what the organization meant to my chamber career.
When I first attended the meetings I learned a great deal from the big city chamber executives that also attended, such as Jack Wesenburg from Des Moines, John Ireland, Sioux City, Larry Owen, Cedar Rapids and others. This is one reason that I returned to Iowa. I would attend the meetings with staff in order to provide any information that the younger execs might be looking for.
Then of course when I became Chair of ACCE and ICCE Chair, the Iowa Execs attended in mass. ICCE continues to mean a great deal to me even in retirement. I am pleased to see the continued opportunities for all the ICCE members and what it does for each of those execs as they move forward with their career.
Congratulations to ICCE."
