Why I Serve
Cindy Ullrich who I worked with for a number of years at BMO introduced me to the Association House first through a invitation to the annual gala. I was so amazed with the depth of services offered and the many life changing success stories that when Cindy asked if I would serve on the gala committee I immediately said yes. I believe it has been nearly 10 years ago and without hesitation participated every year. I am honored to serve as a AHC board member.
