President's Message

I would like to start my message by thanking the over 800 NAWCC members that voted for me in the recent Board of Directors election. I would also like to thank everyone not only for their votes but also for the kind words and outpouring of support that I received throughout the election at every show that I attended. I was both honored and flattered in having been nominated to run.

The experience in running for the Board has reinforced an opinion that I have had since joining the NAWCC .... namely that this is an outstanding group of people! After it was announced in the Bulletin that I was up for election I had a number of people approach me to ask me how they could help me in the election. I had members and chapter officers past and present offer to write emails, offer to make mention of their support at their meetings and more. I cannot tell you just how humbled I am by this ... but also I was simply impressed.

I have in the last few years turned my passion for collecting into a full time business. I travel the country buying collections from retiring watchmakers and jewelers. I bring what I find to NAWCC shows from Florida to New England ... west to Ohio and to any NAWCC National Convention east of the Rockies.

If you have never been to a regional or national I highly recommend it... but just imagine 500 to 800 tables of clock and watch material and many of the tables are unattended! People set up with THOUSANDS of dollars of material and simply walk around expecting their material to still be there when they return! And it is!

Chapter #87 members know that this is our last meeting until September. I thinking of this as I am going to be attending not only NAWCC meetings over the summer but I set up in Brimfield, Madison-Bouckville, and other public shows where I would never THINK of leaving my inventory unattended. I sometimes think that we do not appreciate the quality of people that we have not just in our Chapter #87 but in NAWCC as a whole! My experience running for a National office reminded me that we are truly fortunate in this group.

My parents when I was growing up taught me that I would be judged by the people that I associated with ... not ALWAYS in a positive light! I have to say that I would be proud to be judged by that standard by both Chapter #87 members and NAWCC members at large. I hope that you would be too.


Chapter #87 meets on the 3rd Sunday of the odd months excluding July.
September 17, 2017 and November 19, 2017
