I am determined to not get more than 10 years behind on posting membership events. I think this was at Carolina Ale House at Brier Creek Shopping Center in Raleigh, NC.
Early investor in FOCM, Bill Newcomb was instrumental in this event happening. As such, you’ll see that his wife Joan received her FOCM membership card. Bill and I worked closely together at Quintiles from 1996 to 2001.
Travis Jackson received his membership card. I’ve known Travis for well, I guess probably over 10 years. His wife Alison Greenwood connected us.
Nithiya Ananthakrishnan, in addition to getting his membership card also got the award for traveling the furthest to the event. He traveled from India. Nithiya and I have known each other for 18 years (that I’m 9 years behind in posting the pictures from this event makes the time I’ve known these people even more impressive) having worked together at ICON Interactive Technologies Group.
