For a year of challenge and change, thank you CALBO for taking the lead

Dear Friend of CALBO,

Now I realize, you’ve heard a lot from me lately. Maybe a little too much, but much like you, this was my effort to lead as your CALBO President through a time of change and adversity. And with that – we did it.  You did it.  CALBO did it. As we enter into a new year with still some uncertainty at hand, I want to say – thank you.
