The annual business meeting, held on December 3, was as informative as it was fun! Attendees enjoyed a short, but important program followed by networking via Zoom breakout rooms.
The 100+ attendees from member companies heard an inspiring speech by outgoing board chairman Jon Foley (Champion Companies), an introduction by incoming board chairman John Bertsch (Detailed Machining), an overview of the 2020 accomplishments with a peek of what’s to come in 2021, and a review of ballot items, including the 2021 budget, changes to the by-laws and ratification of new board members.
Outgoing trustees Don Clouser (Champion Companies), Mitch Heaton (Heaton Development Strategies), John Masheck (Clark Schaefer Hackett &Co.), and Ben Staub (BasTech, Inc.) were recognized and thanked for their service and dedication to the Association.
Incoming board candidates were introduced: Joe Osterday (Production Control Units, Inc.), Brian Roos (Morris Bean & Company), and David Coomer (Clark Schaefer Hackett & Co.).
We announced one new Honorary member, in recognition of his outstanding service to both the Association and the industry: Rick Little (retired from Starwin Industries).
Among the attendees were current and past trustees who are thanked for their leadership in making DRMA one of the very best regional manufacturing trade associations in the entire country!
