written by robert hoffman

Dear Members and Readers:

On Tuesday, December 16, 2014, DALE CRANFORD  was elected President for the 2015  calendar year. Dale has been the MISA treasurer for several years and is a long time member of our association. He is the Licensee of Corporate Intelligence Services, Inc. The rest of the election was postponed due to several key attendance cancellations by candidates due to illness and other issues. Those elections will held in early 2015 at a time/date to be set by the new President.

Congratulations Dale !

As a farewell note to the members, I would like to thank them for their support of MISA over the past years. I was able to network with many individuals and I also made some strong friendships that have endured for over 2 decades and made newer ones as time progressed.

Sincerely yours,

Robert E. Hoffman, President of MISA 2000, 2013, 2014.
