“I was honored to have SNAI members trust and respect me to lead the organization,” said Conklin. “The time has gone super fast, it seems like I just started my four year term and it’s almost over. SNAI gives you a great opportunity to meet others, network, and learn from them. It’s a great organization with dedicated members who also have the potential to lead the organization.”

Urbandale CSD is proud to have Cathy Conklin represent the district in such a positive and powerful way. Conklin’s leadership both inside and outside the district is exceptional and we are thankful for the opportunity to work alongside her. Congratulations, Cathy, on this well-deserved honor! #powerofU
