Monday Memo | January 20

    Remarks from ACCA Executive Director Sonny Brasfield

    “The 11,” as they call themselves, are quietly working in their communities to make a difference and put their “passion” into action with unique projects. Participants in the Association’s leadership program, known as PLAN, are now in the final few months of their 18-month experience, and these 11 individuals are each working actively on their passion project while at the same time helping their Accountability Partner with his or hers. We’re proud to say that the entire lineup of current ACCA Officers — President David Money, President-Elect Randy Vest, Vice President Dean Calvert and Minority Director Marcus Campbell — has been a part of the PLAN experience. Certainly, we’re growing leaders for our Association and our state — and we need you to join us!
