Words of Wisdom:

“You have to be in the room, and you have to show up. If you are not in the room with the distinctive members that AMADC attracts, then you will not be able to strongly impact and build upon your professional pursuits. Whenever I attend events, I am reminded of why I am an AMADC member. Get out in front of people to enhance your connections.”
