Letter from the Outgoing Chair

Craig Wood, Outgoing Chair, Marketing EDGE  

The month of June marks a time of transition in the education calendar – and at Marketing EDGE. Students get a well-deserved break for the summer, and graduates are transforming from student to employee. It's an exciting time as one considers the possibilities that lie ahead.

We are proud to play a role in this transition as the only national nonprofit of its kind solely committed to acquaint professors and college students with – and to engage and involve them in – the thriving business of marketing.

June is also a transitional period at Marketing EDGE. Our new officers take over their roles, bringing fresh energy, ideas and renewed passion to our mission. As I step into the role of Immediate Past Chair, I am incredibly proud of what we have accomplished over the last two years - and even more optimistic about the measurable impact Marketing EDGE will have within the industry in the coming years.

As I transition from my Chair role, I remain inspired by a quote I shared in this letter two years ago:

"The growth and development of people is the highest calling of leadership."
- Harvey S. Firestone

Thank you for taking on this leadership challenge with us. None of what we accomplish (past, present and future) would be possible without YOU, our most ardent supporters. With sincere gratitude,

Craig Wood
Outgoing Chair - Marketing EDGE
