In particular, SIMSA thanks Rob Phillips for his past service to the Board – he was an articulate contributor to all matters, which was greatly appreciated.
Finally, SIMSA’s original board was formed in March of 2013 – with the formation of SIMSA. The board memberships were for 2 years for a maximum of 3 consecutive terms – but with a possible extension should the person become Vice-Chair, the Chair, and then Past Chair. As such, the final remaining original SIMSA Board member hit this limit.
Departing from our Board this year is the last of SIMSA’s founding Board members – Ken Cenaiko of Croatia Industries. Ken served on our Board for a few years, then progressed through the rolls of Vice-Chair, Chair, and Past Chair. SIMSA thanks Ken for his formative and ongoing dedication to SIMSA!
