President's Message

‘It’s Fall!’

Fall is by far my favorite season! By October, I’ve usually had enough of the summer heat, and I’m ready to put on some jeans, boots and a sweater. I love all things pumpkin...and while it’s about more than just Halloween, there’s something about roaming around in a pumpkin patch…a fun tradition that reminds us to enjoy our inner little kid...

October also means it’s time for some very important business at ICFLA:

  • Watch your inbox for our annual ICFLA Membership/Subscribership Survey. John Volturo, our President-Elect, and his survey committee have been working hard to create a survey that will help us understand the wants and needs of our members and subscribers and create our 2021 strategy to align with those wants and needs. Your input is a critical part of that work, so please take the time to complete the shouldn’t take more than 15 minutes. 
  • John is also talking to several ICFLA members about current and upcoming 2021 Board positions, so if you’re interested in learning more about some of the open roles and how you might join our mighty team of volunteers, just let us know!

Some of the available roles (as of today’s date) include:

  • Chief of Staff (this is a NEW role on our Board)
  • Secretary
  • Director of Programming
  • Director of Teleclasses 
  • Associate Director of Sponsorship
  • Associate Director of Volunteers
