Why I would like to be a member of the Board of Directors and/or my vision for UTA: I believe that I would serve as an asset to our Board of Directors given my professional experience working with trustee companies, my unique concentration on legal and regulatory compliance, and my continual attendance and participation at various industry events. I am proficient on the many laws, regulations, and issues that our members encounter on a daily basis. In a highly-regulated industry like ours, trade groups play an increasingly important role. The UTA already does a great job of providing its members with continuing education, ongoing advocacy efforts, and best practice initiatives. I would continue to refine and build-out these core pillars of our association for the betterment of our members and the industry as a whole. If elected to the Board, I would work toward upping our educational resources and opportunities for members to learn and engage in valuable discussions regarding the implementation and impact of new laws and regulations. I would work toward the advancement of our group while maintaining the vision, mission and goals of our association. Thank you for your consideration and participation in the voting process.
