20 Years Strong: Michele Bolvin and Elizabeth Birchfield
As we proudly celebrate our 20th year in business, we’d like to recognize two women that have been with us from the start: Assistant General Manager Michele Bolvin and Sales Director/Member Service Coordinator Elizabeth Birchfield.
Michele joined our staff way back in 1993, three years prior to IAC’s grand opening. She’s our morning glory (here to open the doors every weekday at 4:45am!), our wizard of back-office operations, our group cycling guru, and our resident paddleboarder-in-chief. Congratulations, Michele–we’re proud to call you our own.
Elizabeth was the first person we hired in preparation for opening our doors. Her attention to detail, warmth, kindness, and professionalism have truly set the tone for the Club since day one. Whether she’s distributing locker keys, training new staff, or touring prospective members, she puts her heart into all that she does each and every day. Thank you Elizabeth!
Help us support the National Alliance on Mental Illness
Kathy Long also celebrates a big anniversary this year–a decade with IAC! We admire Kathy for her dedication to service, the family environment she helps to cultivate at IAC, and for her virtuosity in tending to all things both beautiful and green! This month our joining special includes a donation to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, an organization close to Kathy’s heart. Kathy and her husband Mike teach a Family to Family course for caregivers of the mentally ill. They will offer another course this Fall. Kathy will also participate in a NAMI fundraising walk on June 4th. To support her in that endeavor, we are raffling off a lovely rose plant–an off-shoot of the beloved bush near the Club’s front entrance. Stop by the front desk to learn more about NAMI, or to purchase raffle tickets. Keep up the good work, Kathy!
