Congratulations, Senator-elect Shelten G. Neth!

Senator-elect Shelten G. Neth

We'd like to say congratulations to PIBBA International President, Shelten G. Neth, who is now Senator-elect after winning a legislative seat in the general election held on November 8, 2011 in Pohnpei. He will swear in on the second Monday of January 2012, at which time he will become a full-fledged state Senator. With PIBBA International President/Senator Neth in the legislature, we will undoubtedly see even more support for PIBBA, and you will not want to miss the 31st Annual International PIBBA International Conference this coming June in Pohnpei! Si Yu'os Ma'ase'! Kalangan! BIBA PIBBA!
