Our 2011 New Year’s Resolutions

NIAC 2011 Goals

Welcome back from the holiday break.  As we begin 2011, we at NIAC stopped to reflect upon the years past and brainstorm about the year ahead.  A strong nine years in, we have a lot to be proud of and thankful for. We’ve crossed many roads, jumped many hurdles and we’ve only just begun.

This past year was successful on many fronts, including:
