President's Message

"What a Conference! If you were at the recent IASA Annual Educational Conference and Business Show in San Antonio, I hope you will agree that it was as good as ever!  Of course, I am biased – but based on countless compliments that I heard about the education sessions, executive roundtables, exhibit hall, keynote sessions, entertainment and especially the conversation with President George W. Bush – the Conference was a resounding success by every meaningful measure.  For me, the conversation with President Bush was the most memorable and I believe this session revealed elements of humor, intelligence, warmth and personality that we don’t always see in the more formal speech format.  

Overall, the conference was made possible by the Herculean effort on the part of our national volunteers and wonderful IASA staff combined with outstanding delivery by our speakers, presenters, exhibitors, performers and everyone else connected with IASA.  This clearly showed that a large group of PEOPLE focused their PASSION and effectively achieved their common PURPOSE of producing an outstanding conference experience for IASA members.  

As IASA President, I’ll sign off with – “mission accomplished” – and hand the reigns to Rod Travers – from whom I understand that ALL SYSTEMS GO."

- Tim Morgan, IASA President
