It is with great enthusiasm, excitement, pride and humility that I begin my term as the Chair of the Philadelphia Section-STLE.  I’m enthusiastic about the coming year knowing we have a blockbuster lineup of powerful speakers, experts in their field, for our monthly meetings and Educational Program (check the website for details).  I’m excited to have a knowledgeable, experienced, active and dedicated Board of Directors to plan and execute each component of the various activities we have planned.  I’m proud of our many past accomplishments (STLE Large Section Award Winner, Scholarship Program, globally distinguished/prominent speakers, fun-filled golf outing, employment recruiting/searching opportunities and  strong support from corporate sponsors, members and non-members alike).  And, lastly, I’m humbled to work with the many distinguished/recognized leaders in the various technologies that comprise the entirety of the Lubrication and Tribological fields.
