Chairman William Shaw said, "As the CIF Chair, I am excited to have the new trustees join the CIF and with their industry and charitable experience, they will immediately enhance the mission of the foundation. With Disaster Relief from Hurricane Sandy being an active part of our mission, I know these new participants will step up to help in a big way. As we continue to position the CIF within the industry and update many of our initiatives throughout the year, it will be an honor to have them working alongside us."
