Editor's Note: 10 Years On
I look back at late 2008 and early 2009 as the most difficult time of my 18-year career with The IIA. It was the one time I was forced to let team members go, and to watch friends and co-workers lose their jobs through no fault of their own. At the time, the global economic crisis was making its way through organizations, and The IIA was not spared. The Institute was forced to part with more than 40 employees despite efforts by leadership to steady the ship.
