ICA staff is excited to feature long-time colleague, Pam Bergdall, in this month's news. She has just returned from Zambia for a brief stay in Chicago before travelling again.
How did you find the ICA?:I first joined the ICA in 1970 while I was a student in Oklahoma City University.
What is your role?:I'd like to think that I encourage people. Others refer to me as the "Uptown Queen" or a liaison with the Uptown community.
What is your favorite thing about the ICA?:That it understands the key challenges. The best part is when it's focused on its mission and is able to inspire others.
What is an interesting fact about you?:It may seem like I'm not focused, but I am because I know that everything is related. Therefore, I am focused on true sustainability. That's why I'm interested in so many things. My five geographic areas are Mexico, Oklahoma, Zambia, Sweden, and Chicago.
