It was a great honor for me to be installed as the new president of the MCAA in January at the annual convention in Las Vegas. There have been so many respected individuals who have done a superb job in this position. I will endeavor to work hard and maintain the integrity and leadership that the MCAA has built over the years. I also want to thank the immediate past presidents, especially President Frank Campitelli, for their mentorship in my preparation for this esteemed position. Having served many years as a senior board member and regional VP, I was involved with developing long-term goals for the association.
For my two years in office I would like to focus on the following.
I look forward to the next two years and am excited about working with the MCAA staff and our board members to accomplish these goals.
I would like to ask for your support in making the entire industry a more effective and profitable environment for all of us. Feel free to contact me with your input and suggestions through our national office.
