A special honor was bestowed upon long-time member and Retired Vice President Steve D’Inzillo, by International President Thomas C. Short at the closing ceremonies of the 62nd Biennial Convention. In his closing remarks, President Short stated, “I attended my first convention as a guest in the year of 1972 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  At that convention there was a person who ran for the office of International President against the incumbent, and that local was picked out of a hat to receive the convention gavel.  “When that person came to the platform to accept the convention gavel, I will never forget the remarks which he made: ‘That it wasn’t so important as to who held the gavel, but how the gavel was used.’”
