This letter is to inform you of my plans to resign as Executive Director of IBMA. I joined the organization as your staff leader in August of 1990 and, with the board’s approval, my last day of employment will be February 29, 2012.
It is said that timing is everything in music and equally important in my decision. A good friend and mentor told me that “life is not a marathon…but a relay race” and to succeed – especially working with others – includes finding the right time to hand off the baton.
