When I need advice I know I can rely on Lynne for visionary, rational and logical decision making,” remarked Barbara Kasoff, WIPP President. “She has been instrumental in positioning WIPP as the leading non-partisan policy organization and has served as national Chair of WIPP’s Economic Blueprint, it’s legislative agenda, speaking nationally on its importance.”
