I am looking forward to my second year as your PHCC of Long Island President, and continuing to work with our dedicated and hard-working, Executive Committee which include: Vice President - John Bifolco, 2nd Vice President - Nick Hartcorn, Treasurer - Ron Doughty, Secretary - Thomas Blacharski, Executive Director - John DeLillo, Deputy Director - Allison Wieland, Counsel - Patrick J. Sullivan and Past President - Joseph Cornetta.

Over the last year, meeting attendance has been at a high, and numbers keep increasing on a steady incline. It’s exciting, as President, to constantly see new faces at the meetings and events we host. As an organization, we strive to consistently provide our members with innovative ideas and seminars to better educate themselves. It is a major focus for this association. The more educated and aware our association becomes, the better off we are! We are always promoting the association and looking to expand our network with new members who are looking to gain knowledge that will help them run their business and grow their network circle.
