As I pass the torch to 2019 AMA Board Chair John Carlson, I want to thank members and leadership alike for their great support as I took over this important role in May.
The year ended with a flourish as the multi-housing industry continued its unprecedented growth in Arizona. Metro Phoenix remained high in the multi-family cycle as new residents and job poured into the Valley.
It was also a year of transition and change for AMA. We welcomed Courtney LeVinus as our new President/CEO. She has a vision that everyone on the board embraces and is eager to carry out.
AMA’s new executive team impressed me with its unity and forward-thinking approach. As we enter 2019, look for new and exciting initiatives from the leadership team. Thanks to Chris Evans for serving two years as Immediate Past Chair, seven years on the AMA Executive Committee, and mentoring me through my brief tenure as chair.
I would also like to thank the Board of Directors for its commitment and patience. It has been a great experience serving as Board Chair. Amy Smith Montoya, thank you for your devotion by extending your role as Board Chair through May to assist with the new leadership transition.
Congratulations and good luck, John, as you assume the mantle as Board Chair. Thank you for joining the executive committee and accepting the Vice Chair position mid-year and assuming our leadership for 2019.
It will be an even greater year in 2019 for the AMA.
