a brief History

the western pa chapter was chartered in 1939, just six years after the foundation of  IREM National.  J.W. Cree, CPM® served as our first Chapter President and  A. J. Aberman, CPM® was THE CHAPTER'S first Secretary-Treasurer.

Many members of the chapter have also served IREM at the National level, as national officers, regional officers,

and on national committees.

Two of our past Chapter Presidents have served

as National Presidents.

Stanley Arnheim, CPM®

was Chapter President in 1948 and five years later

was elected National President.


Paul H. Rittle, CPM®

served the chapter as President in 1958 and went on

to become National President in 1972.

Our membership has changed and grown through the years and in 1990, we elected Cynthia L. Clifton, CPM® as our

first female Chapter President.
