Background Information



I will be honored to lead the multi institutional (MI) constituency. A long-time member of an area chapter comprised of federal laboratories and a few commercial industries, combined with nearly 20 years of leading the District of Columbia Chapter, I understand the challenges of our special category of chapter. MI, Long known as the land of misfit toys, we share this challenge together, how to find and fully explore our strengths. I hope to work with all MI chapter members to find out what works for our type of chapter, the challenges, and inspire us to share our successful stories with each other.
