I am honored to have been elected your new International President at the 91st Annual Convention, hosted by the Port of Port Canaveral on Florida's Space Coast in Cocoa Beach, Florida. I have big shoes to fill following in Rick Schiappacasse’s footsteps, but I am comforted to have an incredibly talented group of elected officers, Board and Executive Committee members and office staff who will work with me to grow and improve our International Propeller Club Ports worldwide. With our new International Vice President, Niels Aalund, I will be meeting with our staff in Fairfax in the coming weeks to lay the groundwork for an exciting year of growth and Propeller Club activities.
I encourage all members and Ports to use our new online engagement system WAVES to ask questions, share good ideas and communicate with others in our organization. Please don’t be shy about contacting any of your officers on WAVES or directly by phone or e-mail. Let’s get ready for a great year in the International Propeller Club’s history!
