The Florida-Sunshine Chapter of the Electronics Representatives Association (ERA) elected new chapter officers for the 2018-2020 term.
Chapter members cast their votes in December 2017 naming Rick Tally, CPMR, of Phoenix Components as Chairman; Pat Bamberg of HHP Associates as President; Chuck Mathias as Vice President/Fiscal & Legal; Lisa Dietrich of Conley & Associates as Vice President/Membership; Greg Warren of Brandel-Stephens as Recording Secretary; and Seth Brock, CPMR, of CBC Electronics as National Delegate.
Pat Walsh of CBX Electronics and Troy Gunnin of SunRep Associates remain as members of the Board of Directors.
With new officers in place, the chapter is poised for growth in 2018 with the goal of expanding its membership ranks and developing more educational programming to benefit the membership.
Chairman Rick Tally continues to be optimistic about the chapter’s role in the Florida industry going forward.
“Everyone seems to have confidence that the industry’s business levels will expand, which translates to an added need for professional salespeople. This in turn, will hopefully generate more growth within the ERA organization,” Tally said.
