ASHE Annual Meeting

The Albany Section is Back!

On Wednesday 10/13/21 the Albany Section held our first in-person meeting since the start of Covid (not counting our golf outing).  The meeting was a combination Social Event and new Officer Inductions.  It's hard to express in words how great it was to finally be able to gather and reconnect with the Section Membership.  The event was free to members and several invited guests (definitely going to be new members…Bring a Colleague, Make a Friend was certainly the theme).  Great adult beverages and food at the Hank Hudson Brewhouse in Halfmoon, NY.

Immediate Past National President and Albany Section founder, Michael Hurtt, swore in the new officers.  From right to left:  Wayne Bonesteel – President, Ed Snyder – 1st Vice President, Melanie Osterhout – 2nd Vice President, Laura Clark – Director, Steve Rutkey – Director, Matt Seymour – Director, and Addy Lyons – Director.  Not present were Lisa Westrick- Immediate Past President, John Saia, Jr – Secretary, Kevin Hajos – Treasurer, and Sara Gross – Director.  Congratulations to our new officers!  Looking forward to our next event.
