Hello to my fellow Philadelphia Chapter members,

In 1983, I was a senior in high school. Ronald Regan was President and Dallas was the top rated show on network TV. The Sixers won the NBA Championship however the Phillies came up short in the World Series to the Orioles, the Flyers were swept in the first round of the NHL playoffs, and the Eagles had yet another disappointing season. In 1983 there was no internet, no cell phones and therefore no social media. Back then, if you wanted to keep up with your friends and family you actually called them on the phone and talked to them. Things have changed dramatically in our lives since that time. We all know that the Eagles finally won the Super Bowl back in February and the other Philadelphia teams are on the upswing now, too. Today, we can’t really live or work without internet access, everyone including children have smartphones or an iPad, and some people can’t go fifteen minutes without posting to Facebook or Instagram. The skyline of Philadelphia was completely different in 1983 as well. Back then, no building was taller than William Penn’s hat which sits atop of City Hall. Today, there are numerous skyscrapers already built and more on the way. Read more.

To my fellow members of CFMA Philadelphia:

Where has the time gone? It seems like only yesterday that I was writing my incoming President’s message, it was a quick 2-years. It was my honor to serve as your president. I would like to thank all the committee chairs and committee members for their hard work and dedication over the past two years. I would also like to thank the board of directors, both past and present for their commitment to CFMA and to the chapter’s growth. Especially the executive committee in my last year, Vice President Jim McGettigan, Treasurer Joe Gravenstine, Secretary Matt McCloskey and Immediate Past President John Bieber. Read more.
