secretary thanked everyone for attending, and that he felt
very gratified with the interest in the Assn. and its
continuation. He also said that one year ago, there was
practically no information available to him, except a few
Email addresses and names. ALL information from the 2015

discs sent to the new officers, making their jobs infinitely
easier. No sense reinventing the wheel!
