General IPMS/USA News.
Mary Jane Kinney, the IPMS/USA Office Manager, passed away on October 14.
MJ was the face of our organization to our members and to those outside our organization. We will miss her sense of humor, willingness to help our members, and her tolerance of the uniqueness of our members.
Our condolences to her family and friends on their loss.
A remembrance page has been created on the forum for those who would like to share a story.
The results from the 2015 IPMS/USA Executive Board Election have been tallied and are as follows:
The Executive Board Election has closed - the web site has been taken offline, the votes tabulated and sent to the main office. The physical ballots will also be tabulated and the results announced as soon as possible.
Thanks to the generosity of Dick Christ, he will order through his hobby shop (Hobby Depot in Tempe, AZ) and we are able to resume the program at least temporarily. I also note many great ideas being generated on the IPMS Facebook page and thank everyone for their suggestions that we will look into.
