MBA staff offers thanks at farewell reception for Fitzgerald

Issue September 2006

The MBA staff thanked MBA President Warren Fitzgerald for his work during his 2005-06 term with a reception at Vinalia Restaurant, Lounge & Wine Bar in Boston on Aug. 15. In addition to the staff, MBA President-elect David W. White-Lief, Vice President Denise Squillante and past President Kathleen M. O'Donnell (2004-05) attended.

MBA Executive Director Marilyn J. Wellington thanked Fitzgerald for his accomplishments over the past year and his support in building a stronger foundation for the operations of the MBA.

"We really were able to rebuild this year," Wellington said. "We've done some amazing things this year, and we couldn't have done any of it without Warren's leadership."

White-Lief praised both Fitzgerald's low-key style and his ideas for improving the MBA.

"The trajectory has been so wonderful to watch," White-Lief said.

Fitzgerald said he has high expectations for what the MBA staff and an ambitious and talented group of officers can accomplish. "I am absolutely certain that each year, this organization is going to get better and better," he said.
