Introduction

Personal Statement

"I was appointed by William F. Phelan, Executive Officer of BOCES, when the Nassau-Suffolk Comprehensive Health Planning Council was established in March 1972 and served until August 1989 when I resigned. During that time I served as chairperson of the Committee on Minority Enrollment 1976-1977, chairperson of the Planning Committee 1982-1986, Vice-President 1982-1986 and President 1986-1988. During 1987-1988 I represented the local councils of the Nassau-Suffolk Region on the New York State body referred to as TALCOVE (The Association of Local Councils on Vocational Education).

In 1979 President Jimmy Carter set in motion a series of regional, state and national conferences focusing on families. I served on the Nominating Committee for the Long Island Region and as a delegate to the regional meeting held January 20, 1980 at Stony Brook, the state meeting held in Baltimore June 5-7. (The other national meetings were held in Los Angeles and Minneapolis).

The organization was initiated in October 1980 when 32 individuals representing industry and education were nominated to serve on the board. The organization had developed as a result of concerns delineated by a sub-committee of the Long Island Action Committee. The first meeting was held March 12, 1981 and I served from that time until I resigned January 21, 1985. I was elected Treasurer and served April 1982 to November 1983. In 1985 RITEC merged with LIFT (Long Island Forum for Technology). I resigned in January 1985 at the time of the merger.

I have been a member of the Board of the Foundation since September 1975, serving as chairman of the Nominating Committee in 1986 and Secretary 1985 to 1989. I continue on the Board but not the Executive Committee."
