December 2021


Happy Holidays from ICAA

I want to take a moment to wish our ICAA community a Happy Holiday Season! During this busy season for each of us from scrambling to get mailers out, secure major gifts, or processing all of those donations I hope you have time to relax and enjoy the Holidays. I am thankful for our ICAA community and look forward to an amazing 2022 with exceptional educational programming for our members.
