Together they have set out a pathway for virtual learning and networking, online training and distance learning that we will continue going forward. 

I encourage all members to consider this as your institute and your advocate for this industry. I also encourage non-members in the industry to get to know someone from ICRI and explore how this great organization can help grow your network, increase your knowledge, and enhance your career. I hope to see as many of you as possible at chapter and national meetings in 2022!”
