Hello AIFBA Community,
As we try to venture through these trying times we are also excited about our upcoming board election in July. For those of you that would like to be involved but have reservations the nominating committee would love to talk to you. We may have several positions available coming up as our current board member may be retiring to allow for others to have the opportunity to serve. Speaking from our own experiences, the opportunity was incredibly rewarding both professionally and personally.
Some benefits of serving:
Meet some incredible people, learn from them and share your knowledge with the community.Attend the NCBFAA annual conference and Government Affairs Conference as representatives of our great community.Be the community liaisons with CBP, FDA, TSA and many more government agencies. You will quickly learn that they are caring kind and helpful people trying to do a job just like us. AIFBA commitment to you is you will have a dedicated mentor to help you transition into your role, be there to guide and support for your entire term. We all know how intimidating and overwhelming it can be at times and like those there for us, we want to be there for the community. If you have an interest in serving the trade community in any capacity, feel free to reach out to the nominating committee as a whole or one of us individually. This is your time to get involved during such an important time in our industry, at least have a conversation to see if a fit for you!
