Welcome to ACT News

We're off and rolling in 2024 and nearing the end of Q1.  If your year is anything like ours, you're experiencing excitement about what you've already accomplished and maybe a little anxiety about all that's left to do in the year.   That's OK as this dynamic is part of the fuel that keeps us motivated to keep going!

In this issue, we're excited to continue offering thoughts and ideas about the industry from our valued partners.  We're grateful and proud of the relationship we have with each of them, the value they offer such different parts of the industry, and their willingness to share their expertise through ACT News and other ACT platforms.  As you'll read below, we are building on our webinar program and launching a new partner video series.  These are both aligned with our goals of bringing member and partner value in new and quicker ways in an ever-changing industry.  And, these are just the beginning as ACT leverages our 25th anniversary year to think more strategically about the future.

Thank you very much!
