General President Daniel Stepano

Happy New Year!

On behalf of the OPCMIA General Executive Board, I want to wish all of our members and their families a happy, rewarding, fulfilling New Year. Coming at the start of a new decade and being an election year as well, 2020 will be momentous. That makes it imperative that all of us seek to have an impact, to shape the course of history, and to improve the lives of our brothers and sisters.
