Projects

American Casting Association
I submitted my annual report as Chair of the ACA Communications Committee for the ACA Business Meeting. I'm currently creating publicity for the winning US Casting Team and for the new ACA casting book. I'm still sorting and organizing all the photo/audio media from the 1940s to 2000 from ACA's Netherton Archive and Collection. Digitizing and sharing could take me a couple years!

Trout Unlimited
I'm pleased to be volunteering for my eleventh year for Family Fly-Fishing Day in May with my home chapter, Mianus TU.
