LETTER FROM THE CHAIR
Thank each and all of you for taking the time last week
to nominate GLC members to be chapter officers and for voting last weekend.
It was a very good election.
We had great participation, a lot of very positive and
supportive comments by members throughout the chapter, and close but clear
(HA! in your FACE, Federal Government!)
The results of the historic 2005 Great Lakes Chapter election
are as follows:
CHAIR: Craig Boldman
VICE CHAIR: Daryll Collins
TRASURER: Ed Black
If you'll allow me, I'm going to wax a little chapter-patriotic
here (official GLC anthem begins to play...)
This was a really cool election. We had many nominations
from all over the GLC region, showing the solid respect and support the
chapter has for its members. The comments I read as the nominations came
in were thoughtful and honest and respectful. It made me feel good about
the confidence the chapter has in so many of its members. It also means
we'll have good candidates to draw from for years to come, based on the
interest of not only the chapter at large, but of the nominees as well.
While the results were close - everyone had good solid support - they were
decisive. So I'm proud to announce the new GLC officers of Craig, Daryll,
Their term will begin after the Reubens on June 1st, when
the chapter coffers will be drained for the most elaborate inauguration
ceremony Cincinnati Ohio has ever seen. In the meantime, lame duck Tony
Cochran and I will be calling on you for one more event: Al "Mad Magazine"
Feldstein's visit to central Ohio on May 1st.
Thank you all again for your participation in electing
our fine new officers. There's always reason to celebrate when a transfer
of power goes down with so little bloodshed (Tony claims he suffered a paper
cut, but Vicky says "oh, he's FINE!")
