Annual meeting was a success!

During our Annual Meeting on October 25th, Indiana Partners of the Americas members elected a new President, Krista Ricci, and a new VP of Programs, John Taylor. Both Krista, a Senior Fiscal Analyst at Indiana State Senate,  and John, a Land Manager for the Field Station and Environmental Educational Center at Ball State University , are longtime Partners members and are very committed to our organization. We wish them the best as they start their terms in January 2024. Congrats, Krista and John!
