President's Update 

Dear IPLAC Friends and Members:

As the weather remains “cool,” IPLAC events continue to “heat up.” I want to thank all our committees who took my request in May to become active to heart. The committees have hosted numerous events that have ranged from educational and informative to social and fun. For those that have not been able to fully experience what IPLAC has to offer and are still looking for ways to get involved, we have a number of great programs scheduled in the coming months. I encourage you to attend events, get to know your fellow IPLAC members and become more active. If there is anything I can do to assist, please let me know.

I also want to specifically thank the Website Committee and in particular, Marc Tractenberg, who have done an outstanding job on the new website. If you haven’t had a chance to check it out, please do so. It provides IPLAC with a number of new capabilities, which we will continue to work on and perfect. If you have any questions or ideas about the new website, please let us know.

As we fight through these sub-zero Chicago temperatures, stay warm and remember Field Day (and 80 degrees) will be here before we know it.

Warmest regards,

Garret Leach
