“This election offered excellent choices for the chapters and membership,” said AGA President Allan Abramson. “Good people will replace good people, and we all will benefit from fresh ideas. One of my priorities has been to strengthen Board-President relations, and I’m sure this will continue under incoming President Andy Okun and the new Board. Thanks to Chuck, Jie, Lisa, and Gordon for working so hard for the AGA! I am sure we will see them again in other AGA roles. ”
