By John Church, Program Chair-Retired
Congratulations to Ken Levy on his election to Program Chair for the 2011-2012 AAAP session, which of course goes with a seat on the Board of Directors. It has been my pleasure to serve in this position for the last year and the latter part of the 2009-2010 session. It has been a very rewarding experience, and I have had the pleasure of meeting many outstanding speakers.
We are a club of volunteers, and it is always a good idea to get some new people on the Board. Any number of club members could serve in these positions. I hope that in future years others will be willing to step up and give something back to the club that has served them well.
To round out our current session, on June 14th we will have our traditional presentation by former AAAP Director Bill Murray in the New Jersey State Planetarium in Trenton, starting at 7:30 pm. This is always a great show, and we’ll be looking forward to it. There will be no pre-meeting dinner this month, but we hope to start these up again in September.
I would again like to express my sincere thanks to John Giles, Ira Polans, and Director Ludy D’Angelo for their much-appreciated support in helping to arrange speakers for this past year. To assist Ken, there are several other possible speakers already lined up for the next session. Ken has many ideas of his own in this area. I wish him the very best of luck and will be looking forward to seeing his selections for the upcoming club year.
