Vision Statement:

I envision a full slate of highly qualified candidates running for all the offices every year. Potential leaders are identified early and are encouraged to participate on national/international committees prior to stepping into national leadership. International leadership will be viewed as an honor, worthy of the highest respect. The nominations process and opportunities for leadership are open to everyone. Local leaders will be encouraged to run themselves and to ferret out those with a strong potential for leadership.
