We’re looking forward to him elevating a high-performing organization to new levels of engagement and user experience for the benefit of our members.”
In thanking Dodson, Clabaugh added: “NetVU offers an invaluable experience by facilitating member networking, providing educational and leadership opportunities and strengthening our connection with Vertafore, and we thank Linda for her dedicated service to our member community.”
