To The BPMIA,
In the last two years I have never given any thought about my term as President coming to an end. I mean you know it will come at some point but I always thought I will figure something out when the time comes. Well, that time has arrived and I am left speechless. This has been such a gift to me that any words I attempt to come up with will not be enough.
I can say that this past year has changed the course of all our lives and it`s still evolving. The BPMIA continued to stay strong throughout this ordeal. Thanks to the Board along with the entire membership we altered some long-standing traditions to meet the current times without compromising our ethics.
For me this has been an incredible journey that again is so hard to put into words. I would like to welcome the entire Board and wish them well. Happy Holidays to all The BPMIA family stay safe and healthy.
Michael Tabback BPMIA President
Past President Joe Albanese asked that we post this message…
Renee and I would like to thank the Board of Directors and members for the gift basket and well wishes as we recover from COVID-19. This hit us both very hard and we have been home for 5 weeks now. A reminder that tomorrow is not promised and life is very precious.
Joe and Renee Albanese
On November 5th, a special elections committee met with President Tabback and the two candidates running for the position of Vice President. This year, and for the first time in BPMIA History we conducted a mail-in election because of restrictions in place preventing us from holding our normal in person meeting. After counting all eligible votes the committee declared Rich Silvia the winner of the election. Congratulations to Rich, and a special thanks to Lou Qualiu for his contribution to the association as a member of the Board of Directors. The board also wants to acknowledge the general membership for their patience and cooperation in these trying times, and to also send our wishes for a happy Thanksgiving. On December 2nd, we will again meet virtually when we will conduct our swearing in ceremony for our 2021 Board of Directors. Watch for details to follow in an email, listing the meeting sign-in instructions to welcome the newly elected board members. Stay safe.

Wood Council spoke about construction site safety.
Our annual golf outing was held on September 25th at the Farmstead Country Club and deemed to be another huge success.

Many thanks to Ernie Sisco and his committee for their hard work in making the outing the success it always turns out to be.
