By Erin O'Connor | Mon Feb 19 2018
Each year we love to announce the stellar folks who step forward to be a part of the Impact Angel Network Advisory Board. But before telling you about our new chairs, we'd like to take a minute to acknowledge the amazing work by the chairs who will be stepping down after their two-year term: Jodi Morris, David Grizzle and Beth & Joel Marquette. Thank you for your commitment over the past two years. Your dedication and help have been invaluable in advising the RENEW team and growing the IAN!
This year, we are thrilled to welcome two new chairs to the IAN Advisory Board: Danielle Gibbie and Don Fulton. Along with existing chairs, Larry & Beth DiSabatino and Nicholas & Anne-Mieke Howle, we can't wait to see what great ideas the board will have to help push the IAN and RENEW forward.
Below is a brief introduction to help you get to know the 2018 chairs:
