Letter from the President – December 2016

It’s hard to believe this is the last President’s message that I’ll be writing (I’m sure that newsletter editors, if no one else, are relieved since I’m notoriously late! Ed. note: Yes.). This will be short but sweet.

Congratulations to our new Board members! (We’re working on a nomination for the Ways and Means for Tuesday’s meeting so please attend so that we have quorum.) Please show them the same wonderful amount of support and engagement that made my two years as President just a pleasure and Allegheny West such an incredible place to live and work.
