My Vision For RLI
I have never felt more strongly about RLI’s vision and strength as an organization as I do here in the summer of 2020. Amid a messy world that saw us having to cancel both the National Land Conference and LANDU, our finances and membership have remained rock solid. That alone is a true testament to the quality of leaders and staff in place and those who have been building this brand over the organization’s recent history. It will be important near term that we not only continue to grow the visibility of the ALC designation and the RLI brand but also be there for our current membership. We are navigating a unique moment in history with an unknown near-term future that could affect membership morale and retention. Our mission statement touches on camaraderie, and that is one of the things that hooked me when I was a young professional joining RLI. I believe it will be important of us to make sure we find ways to still offer that touch in the zoom and social distancing era. Whether that is through Chapter support, additional webinar opportunities or something entirely new, I would be thrilled to tackle these challenges head on with the great people already working on it.
Getting through the current challenges is one thing but continuing the excellent path we are on in broadening the knowledge, appeal, and benefits of RLI is another. We have made great strides in educating and making the general public more aware of our ALC designation but I believe we all feel this can continue to grow. There seems to be countless accreditations out there but few, if any, hold as much weight as the ALC in my opinion. Continuing to get the message out there to the general public, existing professionals and everyone in between that we are “The Voice of Land” will always be high priority. I would be honored and humbled to join the great team in place to continue to move RLI and our designation forward.
