RAPAPORT... The Diamond Manufacturers & Importers Association of America (DMIA) installed a new board and appointed new directors during the DMIA's general membership meeting on March 5 in New York. Ronald (Ronnie) VanderLinden was elected president, stepping in to fill the role held by Ronald (Ronny) Friedman for the past nine years.

Friedman thanked the DMIA members for the support and trust he received during his long term. "I've thoroughly enjoyed serving as DMIA president," he said "However, it is time to pass on the baton and I am certain Ronnie VanderLinden will do a great job."
VanderLinden said it had been a privilege to work side by side with Friedman. "It is my intention to serve the DMIA members the best I can and continue the board's efforts to generate as much as possible added value for the membership at large," he stated.   

"Be assured we will be calling up on you (Friedman), also, now that you're immediate past president. We're not letting you slip away that easily. We'll be needing your input and contribution," VanderLinden added.

President, Ronald VanderLinden
