Notes from the September 17th Chapter Business Meeting:  

Congratulations to our 2020-2021 Officers and Board of Directors!  The slate of candidates presented by the board was unanimously approved by vote at our recent meeting, as was the calendar for the upcoming year.  We appreciate the input provided by all the attendees on topics of interest for upcoming presentations and are excited for this year’s offerings.  We also want to express gratitude to outgoing board members, John Hawthorne and Karen Kritta, who have provided excellent service to the organization as board members and officers over many years.  Each has elected to step down this year and we appreciate new faces gained on the board this year, Michael Bredahl and Corey O’Connell.  Finally, a big thank you to Guy Sanschagrin who has served as MABVP President for three successive years and will be moving to a role on the board of directors to assist with the transition of leadership to our newly elected President, Josh Johnson.
