Dear BPMIA members,
We are anxious to know how you feel about going back to holding our regular meetings in person, as we have traditionally done for the last 50 years. An email was sent out to our regular membership asking the question, as we would like to start booking locations for that purpose. Please respond to the email, as we will be meeting in person on September 1st, 2021, and as always, we need to have an accurate count of attendees. It’s been a tough year for organizations such as ours, and we understand the importance of the interaction between us as members of an important profession. Let us know how you feel about it.
Look to this space and our meetings page for information on dates and locations for future meetings. We are meeting virtually on June 2nd 2021,where we will have further discussion on this same topic. Look for emails detailing meeting ID log in information. Please make it a point to attend, as we encourage and value your input.
The Golf outing application is currently available to download on our site. The date for the 2021 event will be September 22nd, to be held at the Farmstead Country Club.
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 2020,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. On December 2nd, we met again virtually, as Past President Felix Esposito read the oaths of office, swearing in the 2021 Board of Directors. Watch for details to follow in future emails, listing the meeting dates and sign-in instructions for our first Wednesday of the month regular association meetings. The access code will be the same for the meetings through the June 2nd, 2021 meeting. Stay safe.
Dear Association members,
The Board of Directors would like to extend wishes to all our members that you and your families are safe and healthy during these unprecedented times. The Board continues to meet on our normal monthly basis to discuss issues that affect our membership and our professions.
