  5. A number of programs and projects were re-envisioned as the board outlined its strategic plan priorities and timelines in light of the pandemic disruption.
  6. Virtual Training programs were continued and refined
  7. Harmonization process is underway with staff and volunteer involvement

Erin Zimmermann

Holding the number ten spot, Executive Manager Transition Plan, is by no means the least important of our achievements. IAP2 USA is fortunate to bring on board a new Executive Manager as our Strategic Development Manager Erin Zimmermann transitions to the top position on January 1, 2022. Erin brings national association experience and her two years of outstanding work for IAP2 USA overseeing harmonization, training, revenue development, DEI and a number of programs and projects. As the organization continues its transition and growth, your IAP2 staff is ready and eager to advance the mission. Welcome Erin.
