2012-2013 International President Laura Lahman
November 7, 2012
My Fellow Quotarians,
I would like to take this opportunity to announce an upcoming organizational change to our staff. Executive Director Kathleen Treiber announced her plans to retire April 30, 2013.
I am sure that this was not an easy decision for Kathleen to make, because we all know that Quota has always meant much more to her than a career. Kathleen has been a valuable asset to our organization and a wonderful friend to many of us as well.
At this time, I would like to thank Kathleen for her significant contributions to our organization. Her career with Quota spans almost 30 years, where she has seen many changes in our organization and, most recently, was instrumental in the strategic development and implementation of the Quota of Tomorrow plan.
While Kathleen will be missed by our members worldwide, we all knew that this day would eventually come. Although we are greatly saddened to learn that she will be retiring in six months, we are also delighted for the opportunity that retirement will bring to both Kathleen and her husband, Randy, and wish them both the very best. [Read Executive Director Kathleen Treiber’s Message to Members.]
Today, the Board is taking the necessary next step by organizing the committee that will select Kathleen’s replacement. While change is never easy, we know that it is inevitable. The Board of Director’s expectation is that this transition will be transparent and seamless as we continue to stay focused and committed to the Quota of Tomorrow plan, while collectively moving our organization forward.
2012-2013 International President
