October brings us another season of change, with autumn colors in full bloom and brisk weather returning to much of the country. It has also been a season of growth and change for the more than 80 LP professionals On the Move this month. As we celebrate their accomplishments, we should recognize our own successes as we face the challenges of the day and continue to move forward.
All of us throughout the loss prevention community are proud of the accomplishments of those that have worked hard and earned a new place along the loss prevention career path. Whatever our professional goals and aspirations might be and whatever skills and experiences have helped forge our loss prevention careers, we have to find and seize the opportunities to learn, grow, and progress.
