An Interview  with

Q: You just completed a wonderfully successful  Presidency of the WWBA.  What were the highlights during your term in office?

A: Thank you!  It was my honor and pleasure to serve as WWBA President.  The WWBA had an incredible year thanks to the dedication and hard work of its members. Some of the highlights for me include the diversity of the WWBA programs, the contributions of the WWBA to the community through various community outreach initiatives, the new (and fabulous) WWBA website and the commemoration of the WWBA’s 40th Anniversary by the Past Presidents.
