2006 USBF President's Report
President's Report to USBF Members
USBF President, Jan Martel, sent the following report to all Active and Resident Members of USBF Monday, Oct. 2nd. President Martel promised expansions of several of the sections in the report soon. Expanded reports will be in the About USBF section of this website and linked to the points in the report.
When I was elected USBF President last year, I had some goals. One of them was to send email reports to members on a regular basis. From the fact that I’ve served as USBF president for almost two years and this is the first such report I’ve written, you can judge how well I achieved that goal. However, better late than never (I hope).
