President's Message  - Toni Swedlund

It is a special honor to serve as the 2019 – 2020 president of the AGA Saint Louis Chapter.  We are thankful to our outgoing president, Tony Malle, as he showed great leadership skills that resulted in our Chapter receiving the Platinum award this year.  Tony’s term was interrupted with a furlough and he continued to communicate with the board effectively, meet the expectations of the AGA National Board and complete the goals of the Chapter.  I am especially grateful that I will be able to rely on his guidance during my term.

As I step into the role of AGA St. Louis Chapter president, I plan to continue the grow our membership, reach out to the private and the public sector and communicate effectively with the board and its members.

I would like to give thanks to those who serve on the board aside me. I am grateful to have such a dynamic and diverse group of individuals. I know that we will serve our chapter and its members in the highest regards.
