December 2020 President's Report


It’s bittersweet to be writing my final President’s Report. When I first joined PRAL about seven years ago, I had no idea where that ride would take me. I was looking to connect with others in my field and possibly find leads for a job that better fit my interests and skill sets. 

I found all of that. And more.

I’ve met so many people through PRAL that I consider friends in addition to professional contacts that I’ve had to call on throughout the years. They’ve all enriched my life in various ways. I’ve heard some incredible speakers, attended some amazing events, and helped to build our Red Stick Awards program into what it is today. I’ve served on the board for six years in four different roles, including the last 18 months as president. 

I had so many hopes of what this year would look like for PRAL, but unfortunately a lot of those visions were derailed because of COVID-19. However, I will continue to reiterate how proud I am of everything PRAL accomplished this year despite the pandemic. And, I believe that I have helped to lay a strong foundation for future board leaders. I can’t wait to see where they take the organization next. 

I hope all of you have a very Merry Christmas and can close out 2020 on a positive note. Thank you once again for allowing me to serve you and this great organization. The decision to join PRAL is one of the best I’ve made.

Caroline Isemann
PRAL-BR President
