I would like to thank the Metro New Jersey Chapter members, candidates and affiliates for providing me the opportunity of being the 2019 Chapter President. I hope to be able to accomplish what others before me have achieved and continue to contribute to the long success of our chapter for years to come. During my past three years of service under Presidents Greg Manzione, Joe Baldoni, Jr. and James Meehan, I feel well prepared to take on the tasks associated with my new position, and with the support of my officers and Board of Director members, confident that we will live up to the task.
I look forward to working with the 2019 officers, including Vice President – Gary Wade, Treasurer – Chris Otteau and secretary John Musnuff. These three individuals, along with the remaining Board of Directors have all played a crucial role in the Chapter’s success during their tenure and will continue to be leaders for our future. I encourage all members, candidates and affiliates to become more involved with our organization; this will be my primary goal as Chapter President.
This year, the Chapter will once again host several events which I am hopeful all will attend. First will be our membership meeting February 21st at a new venue – The Armory in Perth Amboy, followed by the Princeton Conference, April 5th – our biggest and most successful event. For 2019, we have selected Rolling Thunder Charities to be the recipient of funds raised during our annual fundraiser (date and venue to be determined). Our Fall Conference has a tentative date of October 25th, followed by the installation dinner for the upcoming 2020 President.
I encourage our members, candidates and affiliates to provide any thoughts or suggestions you feel will benefit the Chapter and our industry for the future. We look forward to your participation and support for the upcoming year and contribution to the chapter and industry. Together we will strive to grow our Chapter, maintain an open-door policy and welcome new membership.
