A MESSAGE FROM
Dear fellow NIA members:
is hard to believe, but this is my final Drip Points as NIA President. My term
is coming to a close and two years have gone by most quickly.
have been disappointed by my inability to perform what I had planned to
accomplish this year, due to some unexpected family crises, but many of the
tasks we have planned for have been working out well. First, thank you from the
bottom of my heart to my Department Chairs, Bob Berry, Carolyn Berry, Sandy
Ellison, John McDougald, Dudley Ellis, Elton Gish, Rick Soller and Steve Marks
for their tireless efforts on behalf of all of us, and to Dick Bowman for being
especially diligent in organizing our Museum planning committee. Thanks, too, to
my appointed Board Members, Tom Katonak, Lee Brewer, Mike Guthrie (and Dudley
Ellis), Ed Peters and Joe Beres, for making my job look easy. The NIA’s
finances, newsletter, membership and records have never looked better, and will
continue to be in solid, capable hands.
had intended to attend the Chesapeake Bay Insulator Club’s Maryland Line,
Maryland Show in March and the NIA Western Regional Show in Enumclaw, Washington
in May, but I was forced to cancel those plans. I did attend the Yankee Pole Cat
Insulator Club Show in Holyoke, Massachusetts and the Ottawa Valley Insulator
Show in Smiths Falls, Ontario in April, and both were fine shows. I was also
unable to attend the NIA workshop session at the Smithsonian Institute’s
National Museum of American History in March, but Doug MacGillvary, Bob Berry,
Larry Novak and Ken Willick were more than capable of getting the massive
inventory and cataloguing of their insulator collection underway.
NIA National Show in Bloomington, Minnesota will be here before we know it and
Show Host Ed Peters and the members of the Northwestern Insulator Club will make
sure we have a good show. Also,
make sure to plan on going to the NIA Eastern Regional Show in Corning, New York
on September 16 and 17. Eastern Region Vice President Ken Willick and I look
forward to seeing many of you there!
I will be stepping aside as
President, I know that our organization will be in capable hands with incoming
President Steve Marks. Please give Steve and his Board and Committees the
support and respect that you have given me!
then, please remember to support your local show, your local club, and
your fellow collector. Enjoy our hobby!
collecting and see you at the National,
Kevin F. Lawless, NIA #1679
