Garrett Francis, President

We held our installation of officers and directors last month like we usually do. The one difference was in the ceremony’s duration—35 minutes—from start to finish. I want to thank the ECA staff and committee members for putting together a successful installation in a challenging climate. I also thank State Senator Josh Newman (D-29) for swearing in the officers and board.

Congratulations to the incoming 2021 ECA Board. We have a lot of work ahead of us, and all the officers and members, thank you for your commitment and service.
