The last few months have been extremely busy and exciting for me as business is really taking off. I have traveled and will continue to travel extensively both domestically and internationally and must apologize for the lack of time I have spent in New Jersey.

In speaking with other chairs, and reflecting on the last two years as chair, I have come to the conclusion that two years is enough. It is time for a fresh set of eyes to move us forward. In that regard, I will not be seeking reelection as chair. I wanted to give everyone a little heads up before the convention.
While things have seemed to be quiet over the last few months we have moved forward with a few projects I would like to update you on, especially as we move into what I think will be a very exciting election year.
