It is with a heavy heart that I resign the position of President of the Vermont Assessors and Listers Association. I will also be resigning my position as VT NRAAO and IAAO Representative as of February 1st, 2020.
I have taken a position with Iron County Assessors office in Parowan Utah beginning in February. This will allow my husband and I to be closer to our family.
I have appreciated my time to be able to serve the organization. I have tried to promote and elevate the standing of the assessment profession within the state of Vermont and in the region as well as the VT Representative in IAAO for the past 4 years.
Education has been a major focus of mine since becoming a Lister in 1996. It is part of what lead me to work at PVR. There, I had the opportunity to create a program that truly helps others to become the best of what we do. Then to come to VALA and help stabilize funding for the program as well as for the future of VALA.
With the infusion of funds from expanding the Annual Conference and new education revenues we were able to improve our website and are adding an online payment component this year. There have been so many experiences and wonderful work done by, what I feel has been, an amazing team of people this year!
I feel truly humbled to have been one of the many instruments in all of this. Thank you to the best team ever!! 7
I have met so many wonderful people. People who have been willing to share their ideas, experiences and help me grow in this profession. Thank YOU!
