Dear Association Members and Friends,
“Hope smiles from the threshold of the year to come, whispering, ‘It will be happier.’”
(Alfred Lord Tennyson)
I am confident that 2016 will be one of the best years yet for AIG. Our certification institutes and conferences continue to operate with great success. The March 2016 institute in Jacksonville is nearing capacity. An online training program is in development and appears promising. And, though it seems hard to believe, 2016 will mark AIG’s 20th Anniversary, which we will celebrate at our conference in Boston this Fall. It’s amazing how far we’ve come in 20 years. I believe that is a direct result of the quality and caliber of those from the IG community who have selflessly invested their time and energies over the years to make AIG the very best that it can be. As President, I am grateful for each and every one of you, past and present, and proud to call you my colleagues.
Among those dedicated people are six newly-elected Board of Directors members, announced at the AIG Board meeting in Detroit last October. All below were elected to serve three-year terms:
- Mary Cagle, Miami-Dade County Inspector General
- John Carey, Palm Beach County Inspector General
- David Holmgren, Deputy Inspector General, Texas Health and Human Services Commission
- June Jennings, Virginia Inspector General
- Daniel Lucas, District of Columbia Inspector General
- Natalie Monroe, First Assistant Inspector General, Massachusetts Inspector General
We are fortunate to have such distinguished members of the IG community join our Board of Directors. We asked each of them to provide a biography; and to give us their thoughts on why they ran for the Board, the importance of the AIG, and what they would like to accomplish while serving on the Board. Their responses make up this edition of the IG News. Click here for member access to the IG News
As President, I am very much looking forward to the contributions they will make in the coming years. Please join me in welcoming them to the Board! And, please continue lending your time and expertise to AIG. It is the fuel that keeps us going.
Wishing everyone a very Happy and Prosperous New Year, I remain
Stephen B. Street, Jr., AIG National President
