Charles E. (Chuck) Loeber, CDP, a charter member of the Hudson-Mohawk Chapter, passed away May 1.
Chuck joined the Hudson-Mohawk Chapter of NMAA (National Machine Accountants Association) in May 1953. That means in May 2003, Chuck had been a member of the Hudson-Mohawk Chapter for FIFTY (50) years while the chapter progressed from NMAA to DPMA (Data Processing Management Association) and to AITP (Association of Information Technology Specialists). Although the Association name changed, the chapter stayed constant and Chuck remained a loyal and supportive member for all these years. Chuck was also an active member of Region 13 and the Association. He was the Vice-President of Region 13 and rose to the office of Association Vice President at Large (these days called "District Directors"). Chuck was very active in all those positions.
