Thank you to everyone who attended last weekend's Winter Meeting held at the Big Ten Offices in Rosemont, IL Special thanks go out to Tony Medlin from the Chicago Bears for sharing his experiences with game ball security at the Super Bowls and all his staff for their excellent tour of the newly renovated Lake Forest practice facilities. Another great social sponsored by our generous vendors at Toby Keith's bar ended the evening. Mike Valentine, Northern Illinois University has graciously offered to fill in as District Secretary until elections at Convention. Thanks go out to Mike for stepping up.

District V had three members elected into the AEMA Hall-of-Fame recently. Tex Ritter-Ball State, Ken Hart-Richmond, and Bill Jarvis-Northwestern received the well=deserved honor. All three have served in many various capacities at the District and National level for the AEMA. Their leadership and wisdom have been invaluable to many of our members. Congrats to all three.
