Ms. Al-Qatami will be leaving ADC as of March 20, and will be moving on to work in public relations in the Arab world. ADC congratulates Laila on her new position, wishes her the very best, and knows she will continue to be successful in the future.
ADC President Mary Rose Oakar said, “Without question, Laila is one of the most talented persons I’ve ever met. In the years I’ve worked with her, she has proven to be remarkably versatile and unusually skillful. She has played a vital role in the work of ADC since she joined the staff in October 2000 and ADC will always be thankful for her hard work. I, personally, will miss her wise counsel, calm demeanor, and sense of humor. Thank you Laila for your outstanding commitment and dedication to ADC and the community.”
