Independent Event Producers
Saline said, “It’s with great regret that I must step down from my position as Chairman of the IEP. I need to focus on my family and parents at this time and don’t feel I can give the proper attention to the IEP as Chair that is needed. I have all the confidence in Ann Lehrmann, the IEP Vice-Chair, in taking over the responsibilities of Chairman/President of the IEP. Please give her the utmost support for her new position. Thank you.”
Lisa’s father has stage four lung cancer and is rapidly declining. John Kubinski, her father, has been her mentor, friend and confidant all her life. Please send prayers her way.
