Why did you join the Rise Up Leadership Council?

It was an obvious decision! Where else would I find my interests and passions come together in an organization led by a competent, charismatic leader with strong and caring guidance and support from its Leadership Council?     

What is your favorite way to contribute to the Leadership Council?

Being new, it’s early to say but I’m ready to take on what’s needed. I’m hoping my background and experience complement the talents and know-how of the other members.

What has been your favorite Leadership Council experience?

Meeting Leadership Council members for the first time at the annual retreat and making instantaneous connections!
