“One candidate, and only one candidate for V.P. is leading our organization with diversity and inclusion as a priority. And she was doing this long before it was a buzzword or discussed on the nightly news. My first year on a IAAO committee, she introduced me to others, included me in after-work plans, and made me feel welcome and wanted. This is Rebecca! Additionally, she has the leadership skills and technological background to move IAAO forward during these turbulent times. She started in a small jurisdiction and is now leading one of the largest in her state. She understands the spectrum of our responsibilities as assessment professionals and will use that knowledge to guide the decisions made for our organization. She also has a knack to get the best out of the people she works alongside. I have had the pleasure of working with her on several conference presentations and the beginnings of the Women’s Initiative Network. She is so passionate about the IAAO and I know she is the best candidate. Please join me in supporting her.”

“I enthusiastically endorse Rebecca Malmquist for the office of IAAO Vice President. I have known Rebecca for several years. She is intelligent, warm, and engaging as a person. Rebecca is also a true leader. Rebecca sees change as something to embrace rather than an obstacle to overcome. She anticipates change and moves to adapt beforehand, instead of reacting later. Rebecca seeks wise counsel when necessary and provides the same when asked. Most importantly, Rebecca leads from the front. She digs in and does the work instead of just delegating tasks. All of these points speak to her capacity as a leader. Rebecca Malmquist is just what we need as IAAO Vice president.”

“I was introduced to Rebecca in 1999 when she was a student in an IAAO course in Minnesota. Since that student-instructor relationship. I have followed her career path. The task was easy. Rebecca continued to taking IAAO courses, working on a designation for both IAAO and Minnesota. She was continuously being selected to serve on various IAAO committees. These committee appointments have a major impact in the maintaining the high high standards of IAAO.

Concurrently, Rebecca has been serving both IAAO and her State organization, MAAO since 1998. During this time Rebecca has earned both the IAAO prestigious CAE designation in 2008 and the Matyida Zurowska Hudak Member of the Year in 2018. In addition, she is a National Instructor for IAAO and the founder of the Women’s Initiative Network (WIN).

It is my professional opinion as a long-time IAAO member, Rebecca has all the qualities and experience to lead IAAO. I highly recommend and endorse Rebecca as a candidate for Vice-President. She will serve the organization and membership in a highly ethical and professional manner.”
