BUFFALO - The Association for a Buffalo Presidential Center (ABPC) held its annual meeting at Karpeles Manuscript Museum on Porter Avenue earlier this month. At the event, the organization announced its roster of officers, trustees and committee chair appointments for 2013-14.

Maryann Saccomando Freedman, an attorney with Cohen & Lombardo, P.C., was re-elected president of ABPC for the coming year. Mark Evans, membership and advertising director for the American Political Items Collectors and operator of Collectors Archive, will serve as vice president; Michelle Schwach Miecznikowski, an associate with Cohen & Lombardo, P.C., was elected secretary; and Scott W. Gehl, executive director of Housing Opportunities Made Equal, will serve as treasurer and chair of the finance committee.

Schwach Miecznikowski and Bren T. Price Sr., executive director of the WNY Educational Services Council, were elected to three-year terms as trustees of the ABPC.

Also, Joan Bozer, former Erie County legislator and community activist, was named chair of the community relations committee; Price will serve as chair of the education committee and co-chair with Mark Evans of the collections committee; and David Gerber, professor of history and the director of the Center for Disability Studies at the University at Buffalo, will chair the nominating committee.

The mission of the Association for a Buffalo Presidential Center is to encourage the study, exploration, interpretation and public awareness of Buffalo and Western New York’s contribution to the presidency and national affairs. Our main focus is on Buffalo’s two presidents, Millard Fillmore and Grover Cleveland, but our interest includes other Western New Yorkers who have shaped our nation as leading participants in national government, the judiciary, policymaking and public affairs. Through spotlighting this historical legacy, we hope to promote interest in contemporary issues related to the presidency and national affairs.
