President's Message

Inaugural Message: ABC Night and the Year Ahead

May 8, 2015

By Tom O’Sullivan

 I’m greatly honored to be your chapter president. Also, I want to thank past president Tom Bret for the mentoring and strong leadership.

Our team recently met to plan for a continuing great year. The focus for the next year will be on the benefits of membership, networking, education and professional growth.

We had our Installation and Magic Show May 5, and also honored new, continuing and outgoing officers during the dinner portion of the show. The evening was highlighted by an entertaining performance given by The Stars of California Magic.

We look forward to seeing you at these upcoming events:
