It has been my privilege and honor to be your AED chairman this year and I have been proud to be one of the representatives of AED during its 100th year. Brandeis has played a strong and active role with the Association from its inception.
Reaching this milestone has made this year one of reflection for the Association, and one that has forced us to look to the future. The future of AED, including its next 100 years, will remain active only with the continued involvement of the next generation. As you know, you will only get something out of the Association if you put something into it.
AED will continue to be the way for members to come together to form or cultivate relationships, whether it be with each other, our customers, our employees, or our manufacturers. These are the kinds of bonds that help grow our companies and are something we can only gain from being part of an organization like AED.
