NJ Chapter Meeting and Elections

Members of the Ukrainian Engineers' Society of America (UESA) New Jersey branch installed a new slate of officers during a General Meeting of the branch, held on February 23, 2002 at the Ramada Inn in East Hanover, NJ.

Mattey Rakowsky was elected to head the New Jersey branch in the coming term. Mr. Rakowsky, who is employed by IBM, stated that one of his major goals as branch president will be to recruit young members to the branch, by planning activities which will attract this age group. The other new branch officers are Yurij Shevchuk (treasurer), Oleh Holynskyj (secretary), and Oksana Maziar and Mykhajlo Hrycak (officers-at-large). The Supervisory and Nominating Committees for the branch remained unchanged.

Outgoing branch president Andrij Wowk highlighted the branch's activities during the previous term, which began in 1999. These activities included holding a successful seminar on “Communication in the Digital Age in November 2000, starting the publishing of a branch newsletter, and recruiting a number of young members to the branch.

Following the meeting, UESA members and the public enjoyed a social reception and presentations by two different speakers. UESA member Oksana Maziar, who is also president of the Philadelphia-based Friends of Lviv University, Inc., spoke on the organization’s ongoing and successful efforts in assisting the Lviv Small Academy of Sciences.
