To Society members and non-members alike,
March 2009 was the last time an update was posted regarding the U.S. society. During the past year, the society gained new members while losing a few existing members who, for whatever reasons, chose to not renew their memberships. The loss of members has been due, in part, to the changing world wide economy, which included job losses of some of our members. The society presently has 187 membership units with over 300 members.
In September 2009, a successful gathering and meeting of the society was held in Salt Lake City, Utah, attended by 44 members and guests You may read about this elsewhere on the web site. At the meeting, and after ten years as the founding president of the society, James J. McGilvray, announced he would not seek to remain in office. This resulted in an election taking place via email and snail mail, with the result being that Vice President, Daniel G. Hyde, was elected President. Dan succeeded Jim on January 1, 2010. The society then held another election, this time to fill the now vacant office of Vice President. The initial election ended in a tie and was followed by a run off election that resulted in the election of James E. MacGillivray to replace Dan Hyde.
The new leadership of the society has plans for ways to grow our young society. This will include measures that will entice existing members to remain with us while luring other MacGillivrays to join our ranks. We are optimistic that this will be done.
