A message from SEAOI President Salvatore DiBernardo

I am very proud and honored to be the President of SEAOI for the next fiscal year that just started in July. At our well-attended Awards Banquet I had the opportunity to introduce myself to those present and I would like to take the opportunity to introduce myself to all of our members.
