Headlight 111

    A heartfelt thank you from IHRSA's Interim President & CEO, Brent Darden, to all those who have helped IHRSA and our industry during this difficult time.

    As members of a Headlight Team(s), each of you have been vital to an inclusive, integral, and effective strategy in the story of IHRSA’s revival! Quite simply, the reimagination of the trade association would not have been possible without all of you. The volunteer groups you were part of included in total, one hundred spectacularly talented and unstoppably optimistic industry leaders who, without a doubt, played a fundamental role in shaping a brighter future for all of us.

    It has been a blessing to work with all of you and I am indebted for your support of IHRSA, and by extension, the broad health and fitness community. The outcomes you achieved in a very short period of time were extraordinary at a time when the association and our industry were at a monumental crossroads. So much so, that I repeatedly hear praise about all that we have collectively accomplished over the recent months.

    Each of you have selflessly and graciously donated your time without an expectation of renumeration or recognition. It is an unfailing norm that in any movement to affect change, there arises a nucleus of passionate and driven individuals who step forward to lend a hand and lead the way. Who shoulder the lions’ share of a responsibility, that is really not theirs to bear, out of their own sense of duty to serve the greater good.

    Individually and as members of headlight teams, you are indeed representative of the best our beloved industry has to offer. There are no words that can express how sincerely grateful I am for the privilege of working with you.

    Live Well ~ Be the Salt & the Light,
