    Congratulations, Dr. Ali for elected to lead a very important professional engineering group in Mississippi. In the past Mississippi has attracted 50 plus engineering and manufacturing enterprises to setup production facilities here in the State. You and ASME-MS will be making rewarding contributions for the state, we believe. Again, very best wishes from citizens of greater Jackson-Ridgeland-Richland-Madison-Clinton.
