Mohammed Raei is leaving the Board. President Joey Pauley offered this appreciation:
‘Ridiculously hard working’ is the phrase that comes to mind when I think about Mo Raei, whom I have had the honor of working with on the PNODN board. In his tenure, Mo served in a variety of leadership positions. Most recently, as Programming chair, Mo was responsible for booking, coaching and co-designing presenters for our monthly programming meeting, a significant responsibility. Mo went over the top to develop programs and relationships outside of our regular meeting that delved deeper into topics our members truly cared about. He even facilitated an Immunity to Change workshop with all of the proceeds going to PNODN. The way he showed up in leadership roles is what separates him from the rest of the pack.
My favorite times were carpooling with Mo to our meetings. At these times, Mo and I discussed the topics from the development of the organization PNODN to when we were getting together for dinner. I look forward to spending time with Mo as a friend and working with him on other projects as he transitions from the Board Member to a Valued member of PNODN and friend."
