Good governance is the key to

sustainable community building.

"I had the opportunity to watch Diane in action at two conferences that she organized where I was invited as a speaker. She is very professional, well organized, and has a wide range of skills that would be welcome in any organization. But what really sets Diane apart is her intelligence, integrity, passion and commitment. I have worked as a journalist for more than 30 years and have met many people in many different fields. Diane is simply one of the most impressive people I know. I am happy to give her my highest recommendation."
