    To all of those who made this year's assembly happen, please accept our thanks for your efforts. We had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed the activities, exhibits, and most of all meeting and talking with so many wonderful people.

    It's a very special event and so well done. Congratulations!

    We're already looking forward to next year...

    The Board of Directors provide direction and support in a variety of areas, including programming, membership, Chapters, Liaison with Builders, etc.

    And did I mention numerous volunteers? Debbie & Mike Darga have helped with Registration for about a quarter century! Some Chapters (Chapter One, Norumbega and Upper Chesapeake) step and handle particular volunteer slots year after year. Mark and Ruth Zalonis help out with a variety of programming year after year.

    It takes input from a lot of people (some of whom I will have mistaken in not naming specifically), for whom I am very thankful.
    And there are opportunities for new folks to get involved
    (see "vacant" above).
    We are open to new ideas with regard to programming, structure, etc.
