When I was hired as Executive Director at ICD in 2013, it was the opportunity of a lifetime. And now it is time to pass that opportunity on to someone else.

Every day brings us one day closer to the ICD National Conference in Philadelphia, which means every week now we should have some new information to share with you.

The countdown is officially on for Philadelphia.

Last week, Sean and Stephanie from our staff traveled out to Philly to walk through the hotel, set up many of the logistical details and get a better sense of what our experience will be when we arrive in six weeks.

One thing we hear often from sites is that they want to know what’s going on at OTHER sites. Whenever we get together, there is a good amount of sharing ideas and everyone always says they want more of that.

HERE IS YOUR CHANCE.

Lately we’ve had Georgia on our mind. Allison, that is.

A friend to all of us, the longtime coordinator from USW/U.S. Steel-Great Lakes retired at the end of 2017. We wish her nothing but the best in retirement, but are sad to see her go.

Happy New Year to everyone.

It’s been an … interesting … last month of 2017 and first month of 2018 so far for us, to say the least.

While we may be in the primetime of summer, we also all know that it won’t be too long until the kids head back to school.

That also means that our second 2017 ICD Learning Summit – Milwaukee -- is right around the corner.

Sometimes all the pieces just fall right into place. 

How fitting it is that the day after we celebrate our nation's independence we are able to announce that our 2018 national conference will be held in the city that started it all ... Philadelphia!
