Hail to the (new) chief! The GP NEMBA board accepted Jim Tasse's resignation, and elected Brian Danz as the new president for the Chapter. Jim will remain on the board and continue to be involved as Brian works to step up the activities and presence of the Chapter on the local scene. As one of the most networked riders in the state, Brian is well-positioned to take the chapter to the next level!
