I wanted to take a moment to say thanks to those who cast a vote of confidence in my election to the IAHA board. I really do appreciate your trust in my desire to represent haunted attraction business owners, both for and non-profit and those looking to learn more while considering the steps involved in operating a haunted attraction business. I met so many amazing fellow haunters in Chicago in person for the first time and the sense of family was incredible! I am already working on my efforts to support the 3-year plan for IAHA and I'm taking the goals and objectives very seriously. The IAHA BOD's have done an amazing job of putting together the plan which was presented on Saturday night and I'm honored to be a part of the process to manifest the vision!

On a lighter note, for those of you who caught me in the Crowne Plaza, thanks for putting up with my obvious low tolerance for alcoholic beverages. Man, what a great time, but I'm reminded why I so seldom indulge anymore. I think I'll be paying for it for a while. I'm just not as young as I used to be! :lol: I would try to list out the names of each individual I had the privilege of meeting, but I'm afraid I'd forget someone and hurt feelings. Lee, Mari, Brad and I want to thank each of you for taking the time to introduce yourself. What I love about haunters and our association is that we are able to be professionals and operate as such, but we aren't clouded by egos and a false sense of self-importance. We all share a fun passion for haunting! We don't take ourselves too seriously so that we forget to relax with one another, let our hair down and have fun! But when we need to get down to business, we work together in the trenches to make incredible things happen! The Frozen Tundra Fright Tour is a perfect example of this :!: Iím very excited about where this industry is headed and I feel very fortunate to be a part of it!

Onward and upward while paying it forward!

Altthough, I was no longer a member, I do have to say the meeting turned me around on the matter. I will probably once again be joining the IAHA.

Now I didn't have a say or vote but I am happy for you Kel and think you will bring a certain flair, business, idea and new energy to IAHA. Congrats.

Thanks Jonathan! I forgot to mention in my post above, we'll also be working very diligently to represent the haunted attraction vendor!!! Your contributions to the industry are recognized and valued my friend! I strongly comprehend the symbiotic relationship we haunted attraction owners have with the haunted attraction vendors. We need each other and one is no less and no more important than the other. We're all professionals working in an amazing industry! :wink:
