President’s Message – September 2013

Thank you for the confidence and trust that you have placed in me by electing me your State President. It is a great honor. I promise to fulfill the duties of the office to the very best of my ability.

We are fortunate to belong to a great organization, the Ancient Order of Hibernians. New York with nearly eleven thousand members is the largest state in the Order. It is my goal to keep our great state moving forward, in membership, in charitable contributions and in leader-ship. I don’t intend to re-invent the wheel but to build on the successes of my predecessors, all great leaders. I am fortunate to have a great team on my executive board and with our Directors, all of whom I know to be tireless workers. We pledge to support your Divisions in any way possible. However, the president and executive board can’t row this ship alone. I am asking for your help. Get active. Get in-volved in your Divisions, especially in the area of re-cruitment. Make it your per-sonal goal to bring in at least one new member in the next year.

We have many talented and knowledgeable people in our state and together we can accomplish much. My door is always open to you don’t hesitate to call me if you think I can be of any help. I look forward to seeing you at our next state board meeting on November 2nd in Monroe.

God bless you all.
