    Congratulations to the new board. I see years and years of experience in them. What is wish for is to see some very small operator being able to afford to represent that very large but undervoiced segment of our industry.

    Good to have you Rob Price! Peter, I love the pic, lol, Troy it is great to have you back and Jacques I cant think of anyone that has more passion for the industry than you. Congrats and thanks to you all!!

  3. I second Neil’s comment. I do think it is great having experienced people leading the AGSC. It’s also nice seeing 2 from local or regional shops and 2 from large, national chains.

    Happy to be of service any way I can as well.

    Congratulations to you all!
