Chair’s Message, January 2019

Best wishes to you and your families for a healthy and Happy New Year! Your 2019 LI Section Officers team is: Lou D’Onofrio, Chair, James Colotti, 1st Vice Chair, Arnold Stillman, 2nd Vice Chair, Sandy Mazzola, Treasurer, and Ron Pirich, Secretary. I would like to thank all of those who volunteered their time to the Section in 2018. Your efforts are vital to providing value to our members. The symposiums, conferences and many technical seminars were the result of many hours of work by our dedicated volunteers. James Colotti also arranged for social, networking gatherings in 2018. I personally enjoy them and encourage you to attend.
