From the President
After serving the last couple of years as your Treasurer and Vice President, I’m looking forward to continuing in George White’s footsteps as President of the Greeting Card Association for the next two years. In this first article, I’d like to express my thanks and gratitude to George for his leadership these past few years.
From the Executive Director
The Power of Trying
Success is something everyone hopes to achieve, however they define it. But striving for success, while embracing failures along the way, is really what matters. “Trying” is what matters. You might succeed, you might fail, but even if you get an F on the project, trying means striving to get an A for effort.
