Hello All, Unlike the Rolling Stones Tour, this will be my last appearance in the President’s column. First and most importantly, I must thank a lot of people who have made this job so much easier for me. Dr. Randy Wheeler for his role as Executive Director of the IVMA. Handling the day to day business of this great organization is more than a full time job! The office staff: Tracy Grodnitzky, Cyndy Bolsenga, and Teresa Farrell. These terrific ladies sent me agendas, made sure I RSVP’d to meetings, helped meetings run smoothly, answered all my questions, and made sure I had the president’s column to them by the 20th of each month! (It is actually due on the 15th, so you can see what they had to work with). Thank you!More...
