Mr. Cifelli provided his sincere thanks to these individuals for providing their expertise and knowledge in the past year and committing their time to the Association. AIA also recognized that it could not exist nor have the ongoing success it has had over the past 70 years without the continued support of its members. At the luncheon, AIA also recognized longstanding members who have reached a significant membership milestone and took the opportunity to recognize the members in attendance including Grand Brother Sales, who are celebrating 50 years of membership with AIA this year.
