Financial Secretary Murray Hill Resigns

Brother Murray Hill, longtime Local Lodge 2061 Financial Secretary has submitted his resignation effective January 1, 2011. Murray has accepted a position with the IAM&AW as a Grand Lodge Auditor responsible for Locals and Districts in Florida, Georgia and South Carolina. Murray's departure leaves a large void in the Local. For years, Murray has been the heart beat of this organization, attending to local business while often times assuming responsibility for numerous other duties. Murray has set the standard for IAM&AW F/S's and it will be difficult to replace him in the near term.
The Local By-Laws state in event of a vacancy in office, the President may appoint a replacement until such time as an election can be held - typically not to exceed three (3) months. Consequently I will make that appointment in the near future. Per the By-Laws, the election will be duly noticed at the January 4th membership meeting followed by nominations at the February 1st meeting with an election, if required, March 1st. If you are interested in being considered for the appointment, please contact me (321 446-7092).
In closing, I wish to thank Murray for his service, unselfish commitment and friendship. Your wisdom and advice will be sorely missed, Brother. We all wish you well in your new career.
