organizing and maintaining the MADCAD online reference subscription, and more.
In response to the presentation Van Berlo briefly noted the past members who were responsible for the organization of NMCOA in 1975,
and indicated that his involvement in Board service was extremely rewarding, educational, and fun.
Van Berlo challenged the group, especially those younger inspectors to get involved.
The organization does not operate without dedicated individuals serving on the Board of Directors.
Van Berlo will continue to be available to the Board for consultation, and will continue to serve as the group’s website manager.
