Executive Director Rick Alampi spoke with Bill Sproule, whose new title is Assistant Executive Secretary-Treasurer, Keystone Mountain Lakes Regional Council of Carpenters, about changes in the union since the merger of the Northeast Council with the Keystone and Mountain Lakes Council. Sproule stated that Melissa Lund, in the Edison office (732-471-9229), should be DISCA members' contact for questions about procedures, process or problems. He noted that NJ has been split into north and south regions (previously it was just the entire state) and that Pete Gowing has been promoted to Northern Region Manager and Bruce Garganio has been promoted to Southern Region Manager. Sproule now works out of the Philadelphia office. A meeting is being planned to have a representative from the union address DISCA members and to provide opportunities to ask any questions directly to the representative.
