Chris Astrella, President

Seems as though summer is finally here, and we can enjoy the warm weather for the next three + months. I hope you’re all doing well, and catching up on stuff given there aren’t any elections until February! May was particularly busy for me as I attended the Northern Conference with around 150 Clerks. It was another rousing success! I had a couple of weeks at work, and then travelled to Montreal, Canada for the IIMC Conference, and this year was spectacular. Perhaps it was the authentic smoked meat, croque monssier, or the delicious cup of chocolate I had, but the classes were awesome and the venue was as well. If you ever have a chance to go to Montreal, trust me; you’ll love it. I left Montreal for a week at Walt Disney World to celebrate my wife receiving her Doctorate (I’m married to a Dr.!) and then we came back home to see my nephew graduate high school in River Falls. I blinked and May was over.   read more>
