We are pleased to announce that four members of our team at Prodege have been selected as 2021 Board Officers for their respective Insights Association (IA) chapters. In Southern California, Calvin Friesth will join the board as a Director-at-Large (making it the second consecutive year that Prodege is represented on this board) and Dallas native Kelly Kitchens has been pegged Director-at-Large for the IA Southwest Chapter. Recently relocated Jessica Batty (and former SoCal board member) will serve as a Director-at-Large for the IA Southeast Chapter and Chris Hannsgen will reprise his role as a Director-at-Large on IA’s Greater New York Chapter board. 

One of our newest board members, Calvin Friesth has been an IA member for eight years and has attended many conferences and events on both a regional and a national level. He expands: “I’m excited about the great learning and service opportunities this position will bring in 2021. I’m looking forward to working closely with other professionals in SoCal and across the industry to bring opportunities & knowledge and continue pushing Insights forward.”

Newly minted Southwest Chapter board member Kelly Kitchens is appreciative of the knowledge and authentic connections she’s gained through IA.“I’m excited and honored to expand my involvement in 2021. I am particularly looking forward to supporting our members’ educational growth opportunities which our generous chapter sponsors help to make possible. We are all looking forward to our upcoming Virtual Vegas Conference on March 2-4.”
