bill lavery's SLI retirement idea mapOn Friday January 21, 2011 the team supporting the Saline Leadership Institute (SLI) in Saline, MI gathered to celebrate the retirement of Bill Lavery. Bill (who was previously a retired health care executive) was one of the three original founders of this organization. SLI is committed to helping people in the Saline community develop leadership skills that would in turn feed the volunteer organizations that help Saline grow and mature.

I have been a facilitator for SLI since its inception. Bill Lavery was an Idea Mapping fan and expert from the first class I taught. It was therefore fitting to build an Idea Map with thoughts, wishes and photos of all who were involved in making each annual class of graduates possible.

Congratulations Bill! You will be missed, but we know you are off on other adventures.
