The entire SAPFM Board wants to thank all entrants for the 2023 Phil Lowe Makers Challenge. We were fortunate this year to have twenty-nine members willing to take the time and effort to submit their work, which allowed us to see for ourselves how truly talented our membership really is. Every item that was entered is an award-winning piece which represents countless hours of skill and effort.
The 2023 edition of SAPFM’s annual journal is now at the printer and delivery to members who were up to date as of October 31, 2023 is expected to begin around the first of December.
The Educational Grants committee has announced two awards for 2023. Awards of $2000 each go to Bonnie Hawk of Frederick, Maryland and Wilson Newman of Defiance, Ohio.
For 2023, we haD 4 openings for the SAPFM Board of Directors due to expiring terms. The nominating period concluded on October 15th with the same number of candidates (4) as we have openings. Therefore per our by-laws, all 4 candidates will be admitted to the open seats (i.e., there will not be an election).
