Season’s greetings and best wishes for the festive season
As the year draws to a close, we celebrate our achievements and look forward to bringing members more great benefits and opportunities in 2013.
As 2012 quickly comes to an end, I’d like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the hard work of those involved in making the Institute the success it is. Many thanks to our committees and volunteers, our National Council, and particularly Ken Schurgott, our 2012 president, for their commitment and contributions throughout the year.
