I hope that you have all had a nice fall in RI, enjoying some outside activities that RI offers in the fall or doing whatever brings you joy. Winter is just around the corner. I wanted to take the opportunity to share a few things with all of you.

CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR GOVERNOR-ELECT

I am pleased to announce that our Governor-Elect is Dr. Kwame O. Dapaah-Afriyie, MBchB, FACP. Congratulations Kwame! The process for the transition to Governor is interesting. Kwame will begin his year as Governor-Elect joining me at the ACP Annual Meeting in April 2022. We then overlap for my last year as Governor so that I can show him the ropes. I will end my term in 2023 and Kwame will then begin his 4-year term, serving from 2023 to 2027. Kwame will have all of our support and will do great things in his role as Governor!
