Greetings, As of the AAA Annual meeting (August 2021), I will be transferring the Section President’s Gavel to Chih-Chen (the gavel is already in the mail). I know that we are in great hands with Chih-Chen at the helm!
Because my time is mostly in the past, I’ll keep this missive brief!
Most importantly, thank you for allowing me to be your Section President for the past two years. Of course, almost 18 of my 24 months were dominated by Covid, a crazy and challenging time for all. In that regard, I hope that you and yours are safe and well, and I miss my dear friend, colleague and section member, Tim Pearson.
I recall sitting in the Cantina at the US ATF Headquarters at our 2020 Mid-year with Debbie Sinclair and Les Heitger and watching the TV between sessions. It was March 4-5, and we all noted that had our Mid-Year been any later, the meeting would probably have been cancelled.
