At the business meeting, we elected Mert Nason as the new association president, with Jerry, Perlie and Jon agreeing to stay on for another term. The new slate becomes effective on January 1, 2016. Kudos to retiring president Tom Donahue
for ten years of service to our group!

Rather than the traditional, and sometimes awkward table pictures, those sitting together instead stood for photographer Ed McLaughlin (Thank you SO MUCH for the great pics, Ed!)
