As you probably have read, Dave Lockhart has resigned from the role of President as of October 31, 2023.  In accordance with the duties of the First Vice President, I accepted the role of President until the end of the next term.

To replace me in my previous position I nominated John Noack to once again take on the responsibilities of the First Vice President.  He accepted and the Eboard approved his appointment.

My days of tilting at windmills are over and I’m looking forward to getting back to the joy of building models.

I cannot thank you all enough for the support you’ve given me over these past two years.  There will be lots of exciting things happening at IPMS/USA.  I will still be a proud member and be around, just not...
