I want to thank the Organizational Design Work Group: David Carl, Amanda Jones, Jap Keith, Barbara Bullock, Dick Haines, and Peter Yuichi Clark. The commitment, direction and endless energy they each brought to the process has allowed our community of members to move together through the intricate details and the most difficult questions. Thank you to Donna Dunn, Tecker International consultant, for her guidance and wisdom, reminding us to trust in the process over the past few years. I also want to extend a thank you to the ACPE Board of Representatives, whose dedication and leadership lead the ACPE to challenge ourselves to engage the task of moving ahead.
But mostly I want to thank the ACPE membership for providing so much thoughtful feedback. The breadth and depth of your comments demonstrates your love of and commitment to ACPE. You participated in this process with passion at regional and national meetings, online forums, and direct communication with work group and board leaders. This is your design and your association!
Obviously not everyone is in favor of the proposed changes and some have real concerns. Fortunately we will continue this work during the implementation process and going forward as we continuously strive to create a better community.
Your faith in ACPE and this process will allow us to tackle the next challenges and grasp future opportunities over the next 50 years as we continue Moving Together, Moving Ahead
All the best,
Carlos R. Bell
