CRANE Updates


I would like to take this opportunity to provide you a few CRANE updates.

First, I want to thank this years board members, for their willingness to volunteer and provide their support to CRANE.

2021 CRANE Board:

  • President Elect- Brenda Joseph
  • Vice President- Pam Hinkle
  • Treasurer – Ren Garcia
  • Secretary- Dawn Smerbeck
  • Committee Chairs
  • Megan Lucas- Education
  • Mindy Young- Membership
  • Joyce Chin- Nominating
  • Laurie MacDougall- Newsletter
  • Pam Hinkle- Bylaws

Our primary goal for this year was to provide the membership an Annual meeting, in person or virtual. Earlier this year we sent a survey and you the membership provided us your feedback. The 2021 annual meeting will be virtual over two consecutive half days. Please save the dates Tuesday, October 19th and Wednesday, October 20th. Both days will be from 8-Noon est. The cost will be $100.00.

We are currently finalizing the agenda and meeting details. We are still confirming speakers at this time, if you have a topic or have heard a speaker you would recommend please contact me immediately.

I would like to express my sincerest thank you to Laurie MacDougall for her years as the editor of the CRANE newsletter. Laurie has asked for me to recruit her replacement ( as I told her near impossible). If you would like to serve as editor of the newsletter please contact me.

Finally please look for an email, which will be the call for nominations. We need you the membership to come forward and serve this organization.

We only can continue with members volunteering to serve.

As always please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

I hope you are all healthy and enjoying our summer in New England.

Thank you,
Cheryl Sheridan
President, CRANE
