John Owens is a new addition to ICA's ToP Support staff.
How did you find the ICA? I first encountered ICA through accelerate77 when I was working in a Master's degree in Geographic Information Systems. I was really impressed with ICA's insights about the many ways in which sustainability can be addressed.
What is your role? I have just begun serving as ToP Training Support Officer. I'll be focusing on making our website a better resource for ICA and the ToP Training Network.
What is your favorite thing about the ICA? Earlier this month I had the privilege of attending the Annual Gathering of the ToP Network in Aurora, Colorado. I was able to hear the inspiring ICA story from founders and early members. I also felt the excitement about future collaborations with dynamic Network members I met. Given that experience, my favorite thing about ICA is the opportunities I will have to work with so many nice people.
What is an interesting fact about you? I have run the Chicago Marathon and still compete at distances of 10 K and less (mostly less).
