I’m writing this column in June, just weeks after my youngest son graduated from high school. I’m excited to discover how he navigates the next part of his life journey. And as he moves toward greater independence, I am hopeful that the core values he has learned from family and community will guide him well.
One of the core values that I have tried to uphold during my own life journey is that my actions—big and small, public and private—must have an ethical foundation. A major reason that I have remained so committed to IIBEC over the years is that this community holds ethics to be of paramount importance in our individual conduct, our profession, and our business operations.
