The highlight of my GBA Presidency was preparing for the transition from our many years of outstanding management by John Bachner and his firm, Bachner Communications, to a self-managed organization. In the 2014-15 year, we devoted so much time and effort to ensuring that GBA would emerge stronger through that transition. Some of my best memories are of the countless hours spent with our awesome Board of Directors team; the meetings in St. Michael’s, San Francisco and Miami; and the many days spent in Silver Spring with John endeavoring to make the transition as smooth as possible for him.
