I was introduced to NFL in 2008 when I was asked to review their web and text based resources. I was then nominated and elected to the NFL Board of Directors the following year. Since being elected to the NFL Board in 2009 and attending my first AGM and conference which was held in Toronto Ontario, I have appreciated working with fellow members on the board including the Education Committee and Executive. The collegiality and the passions that each board member brings to NFL has made it extremely easy to commit to this organization as a board member – an incredibly rich organization in regards to the experiences and backgrounds that the members bring to the organization.
