March 2023 DAB Newsletter Introduction

March 10, 2023

Firstly, I want to give a big thanks to all those that joined us on our DAB Hour on Mold Prevention and Mitigation.  WOW! We thought it was well attended and hope everyone walked away with something they could benefit from in the field. If you missed it, Brittany Brooks provides a great summary in this issue. You can also view it (and any other webinars you may have missed) any time through the IAM Learning portal. The the whole purpose of the DAB hours is to supply the boots on the ground with information they can use to be more successful in their everyday work. If you have an idea for a DAB Hour, please let me or Daniel Bradley know.

Another topic of discussion is at the IAM Annual meeting this year we will be announcing a new Chair and Co-Chair to head up the DAB Management Board (DMB) and represent DABs across the country. So, if you think you have what it takes - the passion and drive to steer this ship - reach out to me for more details and I will be happy to share. The new Chair and Vice Chair will be voted on later this year and the winners will be announced at the 61st IAM Annual Meeting & Expo in Toronto in October.

This has been an amazing opportunity and experience all the way around for me. From networking, making industry friends, and driving change in an industry that means so much to so many of us. Not to mention getting a seat on the IAM Executive Committee. That alone was one of the best experiences I had; knowing the US Domestic Asset Based Movers had a voice at the highest level made me proud and made this role feel even more purposeful. At the end of the day though, the support from the DMB and agents alike are truly what made this fun and easy to do.

I look forward to supporting the new leadership and hope to be a part of the DMB in a smaller role. Then, I’ll pursue my dream of running for President of the United States in the 2024 election. Please stay tuned for the formal announcement.
