Message from the Chair

Chairman photo

I hope this letter finds everyone well and enjoying the Holiday Season. It is a great time to reflect on the prior year’s accomplishments, next year’s goals, and areas for improvement. One thing that strikes me is the lack of civil discourse in our politics. Healthy, spirited debate is a necessary ingredient for our democracy to thrive, but personal attacks and a total lack of civility are making that impossible. My holiday wish this year is that we, as a country, learn tolerance and how to disagree without being disagreeable.
