A Special Thanks

It’s hard to believe it was just a few weeks ago, we were in Las Vegas at the Paris hotel deciding which educational sessions, trade show floor activities or special events we wanted to attend. I hope you not only brought back some valuable tools and ideas for your
company but continued to build a stronger network of relationships with your peers within the industry.

A special thanks to all the exhibitors, our sponsors and, of course, to the members and industry colleagues for your support and attendance at AWCI’s Expo: Construction Directions, our 87th annual convention and trade show. Steve Etkin and the staff of
AWCI need to be commended for their countless hours of dedication and attention to
detail that made the 2004 convention another great success. Numbers are not in yet,
but it was either our largest or 2nd largest convention in our history, but without doubt,
our best.

It’s hard to believe my responsibilities as president of AWCI are coming to a close. Where
did the year go? When I think back on the past presidents of AWCI, their depth and
experience in the industry and the fact that I now join their ranks, I can only say that
it has truly been an honor and a humbling experience for me to serve and represent you,
the membership.

A special thanks to my wife Elaine and my sons, Adam and Arron, for being so supportive and by my side through not only this year, but all the years that led up to this
past year as AWCI’s president; without your support, I could never have done it.

A special thanks to the AWCI Executive Committee, the board of directors, the AWCI
staff and the great people at J&B Acoustical for their support this past year. And last but not least, Steve Etkin, your leadership, friendship and support this past year has made my experience a truly memorable one. Thank you, Steve. I encourage you to get involved in your association. Pick a committee that interests you.
The rewards out weigh the commitment. If you are already involved, ‘thank you.”

Again, thank you for the honor and opportunity to serve as president.
