President's Message

Dear Members, Colleagues and Friends,

President's MessageAnother year has come and gone,  and once again I'm amazed at how "time flies when you're having fun". Trusting you've had a most enjoyable holiday season and on behalf of the entire ISA Hamilton Section Executive Board..  Best Wishes for a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year !!

We're now into the second half our 2008/2009 season at ISA Hamilton and I must say...  I'm really looking forward to the terrific meetings and events that we have lined up for the next few months.  Just around the corner is our January membership meeting which promises to be not only informative,  but also very interesting and enjoyable.

ISA Hamilton EXPO 2009 is once again shaping up to be our best ever.  It seems that every year it just gets bigger, better, and even better.  Alice Kelly continues to spearhead this effort and as always,   she's doing an excellent job in coordinating the requirements and all those details.

I'm looking forward to seeing you at our upcoming meetings and events.

Best regards,
  Jack Vincent
