The Charles J Connick Stained Glass Foundation is pleased to announce that at our Annual Meeting, Al Tannler was elected President of the Foundation. A longtime member of the board and ardent supporter of the Foundation, we welcome him into his new role. Mr Tannler takes the reins from Marilyn Justice, who has retired. We cannot thank her enough for her leadership and her tireless devotion to the Foundation and the memory of the studio.

At the 2015 Annual Meeting, it was decided by the board to suspend most of the activities of the Foundation, including tours, lectures and newsletters, in order to devote all possible resources to the publication of a much needed book about Charles J Connick, his studio and his art. We are delighted that our friend, Peter Cormack MBE, FSA, HonFMGP, Vice-President of the British Society of Master Glass-Painters, has agreed to this project. Details and updates will appear here as warranted.
